Botox is a highly effective, non-surgical treatment for under arm hyperhydrosis with minimal risks. Tiny amounts of Botox are injected into the under arm area which then block the nerves that activate the sweat glands.
Treatment for hyperhydrosis takes around 30 minutes. A temporary dye may be used to establish the areas where perspiration is greatest. Several injections with an ultra-fine needle are made into the under arm area. Although the treatment is not painful, a topical anesthetic can be applied 45 minutes before the procedure to reduce discomfort.
The treatments require a frequency of approximately 6-12 monthly depending on treatment plan which will be fully discussed prior to commencing any treatment.
