What is hyperhidrosis and how can Botulinum Toxin help?

Severe underarm perspiration is a serious problem for approximately 1.4% of all adults, affecting both men and women. Its formal name is severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis and it is caused by overactive sweat glands, which cause the level of sweating to significantly exceed the body’s normal requirements for temperature regulation. It can have a distressing and inconvenient impact on daily life, but, despite this, many people never seek treatment, which is unfortunate because there are solutions available. One of these solutions is Botox, which is applied via injections to the problem area to reduce the productivity of the body’s sweat glands and thus the amount of sweat expelled.
