Excessive sweating can be an embarrassing problem leading to body odour. It can ruin your clothing, increase your dry cleaning bill not to mention the emotional implications.
Understandably, many people are apprehensive about the idea of having botox for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. Botox is extremely effective for underarm sweating. Botox works by blocking the nerve impulses that cause sweating. During your consultation at cosmeticdoctor, Stillorgan we assess whether your sweating is caused by an underlying medical condition e.g. Thyroid disease. We can perform thyroid function tests at our clinic if deemed appropriate.
It is important not to rush into botox treatment. Usually, prescription anti-perspirants are recommended first before considering treatment. When prescription anti-perspirants fail to work then botox is a fantastic treatment option.

Is botox treatment for excessive sweating painful?

In summary botox is a safe, effective and FDA approved treatment for excessive sweating in the armpit area.
