hyperhidrosis

Dermatologist Orange County
 

Description

Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, or severe underarm sweating, is a medical condition that involves hyperactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body's temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body's normal requirements. Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis often goes undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and untreated due to lack of awareness.

Treatment

What Can Be Done?

BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) injection is a treatment for severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis patients who are not responding to topical therapies, such as over-the-counter antiperspirants and topical aluminum chloride hexahydrate.

BOTOX® is not a cure, but an ongoing treatment for severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis not adequately managed with topical agents. BOTOX® treatment helps control severe underarm sweating by temporarily blocking the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. Research has shown that treating severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis with BOTOX® may provide effective, temporary control in many patients.

BOTOX® is not a cure; your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment. will recommend a treatment strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible results with BOTOX® treatment.
