What is Axillary Hyperhidrosis?
This condition is an excess of sweating in the under arm area.
Individuals who complain of excessive sweating often find this condition embarrassing, and it can have a significant impact on their quality of life.
Botulinum toxin A is an approved treatment of localised excessive under arm (axillary) sweating in UK.
Botulinum toxin injections can be used for treatment of excessive sweating of palms and feet.
How does the treatment work?
Small amount of botulinum A (Botox) is injected under the skin and blocks the nerves which supply the sweat glands. This reduces production of sweat in that area.
Botulinum toxin can be an effective treatment option where antiperspirants or medications have not been successful or not well tolerated. You can visit Hyperhidrosis UK website for more information on this condition.

''Working in a high pressured job which requires you to dress smartly on a daily basis puts great pressure on you to not have embarrassing sweat patches under your arms. I’m sure this is a problem for many people and it is quite frankly embarrassing. I found out about underarm botox injections offered by Dr Patel in Rosemead Drive Surgery which apparently stops this awful problem for six months or so per treatment. The service I had was impeccable from a courteous manner of welcoming patients to performing a procedure quickly with good effect. I was extremely happy with the service. It has literally changed my life. I can now wear white T-Shirts and shirts without feeling embarrassed. I highly recommend this simple, quick but effective treatment for underarm sweating''
