What To Expect From Underarm Hyperhidrosis

Injections are used for excessive underarm perspiration also known as Axillary hyperhidrosis. The injections are given by micro injection into the skin, a procedure that takes approximately 10 mins to perform.

When small doses are given into the skin, the injections block the actions of the nerve that supplies the eccrine glands: this prevents the glands from producing sweat. The effects of the treatment usually last for several months but will eventually wear off.

The effects can last for up to 9 months.
