While sweating is the body’s way of regulating its temperature, some people may sweat four or five times more than is considered normal. If you are one of them, know that you are not alone and the condition is treatable.
Excessive sweating affects around 3% of the population.
There are two types of hyperhidrosis. The more common type, primary hyperhidrosis, often begins in childhood, whereas secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by a medical condition or a side effect of a medication. Another key difference is that unlike people with primary hyperhidrosis, people with secondary hyperhidrosis usually experience excessive sweating while sleeping.
The most common areas of excessive sweating are the underarms, hands and feet. It can be very embarrassing, and often a constant cause of concern for the sufferers.

What injection treatment involves
The area under the patient arm needs to be treated in order to determine which part of the axilla they are sweating from the most, by means of using an ointment. Then the area can be injected. It takes very little time, around 30 minutes. Patients can return to work/normal activities immediately.
Patients can expect results in 7-14 days. The treatment usually lasts from 8 – 12 months. Patients normally return annually for re-injection.
