Excess Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

Hyperhidrosis is a condition whereby a person sweats excessively and this may be localised to specific areas, or affect the entire body. When sweating is this extreme it can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, anxiety inducing and life inhibiting.

In some people, the body’s mechanism for cooling itself down is overactive- so overactive that they may sweat four or five times more than is necessary, or normal. It can disrupt all aspects of a person’s life, from career choices and recreational activities to relationships, emotional well-being and self-image.  This kind of excessive sweating is a medical condition called Hyperhidrosis.  

Hyperhidrosis has – quite understandably – a significant impact on quality of life. It can restrict the choice of clothing and affect relationships. Many find the problem embarrassing and may avoid certain social situations as a result. 

BTX-A is a well-known treatment for managing Hyperhidrosis and the most common areas treated are armpits and palms. Although one cannot guarantee the resolution of the problem, in our experience, we have had great success with this treatment. It is difficult to predict the duration of benefit in any given patient.

Excess Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)


Please shave underarms and avoid using over-the-counter antiperspirants or deodorants 24 hours before.

It is advisable to avoid aspirin and non-steroidal medication, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba and St. John’s Wort for at least 24 hours prior to treatment as these may increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.

If you have been prescribed aspirin for a medical reason, it is best to continue this. If you have a bleeding disorder or are taking Warfarin, discuss this with the nurse prior to receiving botulinum treatment.

Wear a dark, loose top, preferably an old one to the appointment. You may bleed a little and iodine may stain clothing.

The Doctor will first identify where the sweat glands are most active. Injections are spaced approximately 2cm apart to treat the area.  The needles are tiny, the injections are not deep and most patients report tolerable discomfort rather than pain.
