Meyer Clinic understands that excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can have a debilitating effect on both men and women. Although not a serious health threat, excessive sweating can be an embarrassing and uncomfortable problem. Mostly often noticeable in the underarm area, it can also affect the hands and the hairline. We are not sure why some people sweat more than other, and genetics possibly play a role, as does overdrive of the sympathetic nervous system, which regulates the body’s fight-or-flight response.

When antiperspirant is not effective at managing excessive sweating, one option for treatment that Meyer Clinic recommends is the use of the botulinum toxin, which is FDA approved for treating excessive underarm sweating. Botulinum toxin blocks the nerve signals that instruct the sweat glands to become temporarily inactive. Results are noticeable within 3-4 days and can last up to six months. Treatment is fairly pain free and fast.

The wonderful additional benefit to treatment with botulinum toxin for sweating, is that there is no more body odour which is another welcome outcome for most people. This treatment is very popular for many people managing sweat levels and body odour, even if they do not suffer from excessive sweating.
