Why choose Botox® injections?
‘Extra strength’ antiperspirants are worth a go, but they often only slightly reduce the problem and the dampness is still a problem. They can also cause irritation so severe that antiperspirant needs to be abandoned altogether while the skin recovers.
For severe hyperhidrosis, surgery used to be the last resort. However, this is expensive and comes with a series of potential complications. It isn’t always successful and can also lead to compensatory sweating (elsewhere).
Compared to the other options, Botox is something of a miracle cure.
Botox injections into the underarm area are at least as effective as surgery used to be, without the risks or costs involved.
They work extremely well, drying up the sweating for months at a time and allowing patients to wear whatever they want with confidence.
