Excessive Sweating
Excessive Sweating

At Skin Institute, we understand that excessive sweating – technically known as ‘hyperhidrosis’ – can be a debilitating problem – not something you can simply fix with stronger antiperspirant.


Excessive sweating can be uncomfortable, certainly, but it can also take a psychological toll – causing social awkwardness and in turn making you unwilling to undertake certain activities or go particular places. Botox® treatment from our team of experts can be a highly effective solution.

The most effective treatment for excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is with Botox®.

Botox® for hyperhydrosis is an injectable procedure that helps control the symptoms of severe underarm sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive the chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. One session of Botox® is normally all that’s required and the effects can last up to 7 months.
