(armpits, palms, feet)
Excessive sweating in the armpits is the most common condition of this kind. It is estimated to affect at least 1% of the UK population, with the highest incidence being in adults aged 18 – 54.
As well as creating discomfort, the condition can have a significant impact on social, emotional and professional interactions of the affected individuals.
The treatment consists of the injections of the toxin in the skin of the axillary area (armpits) to temporarily inhibit the activity of the interested nerves which are responsible for stimulating the perspiration.
Affected individuals will have assessed prior treatment to establish the suitability of the treatment and the best approach.
