Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis, otherwise known as excessive sweating, can significantly influence a person’s quality of life, yet the treatment can be very straightforward. In many cases, the sweating only affects a concentrated area such as the underarms.

Botulinum Toxin A (brands used at Transform Clinics are Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®), a treatment most associated with cosmetic wrinkle reduction, is also a very effective treatment for focal hyperhidrosis.

When Botulinum Toxin A is injected into the sweat gland, it blocks the nerve signals responsible for sweating, and stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat.

Treatment is typically needed in six to twelve months, as the nerves regenerate. However, over time, patients can go longer between treatments.
