Sweating is the body's normal mechanism to get rid of excess heat, but some people produce more sweat than is needed for cooling - called hyperhidrosis. This condition affects about 2-3 % of the population. Hyperhidrosis can be troublesome in some individuals causing irritation and sometimes social problems.

Injections to the affected area is a proven and safe method of treating hyperhidrosis.

Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects are usually noted within 2 weeks.

Injections do not cure hyperhidrosis; excessive sweating will go away gradually (usually in about a week) and return gradually. Therefore, follow-up injections are required to maintain dryness. These repeat injections may be necessary at intervals varying from 7 to 16 months depending on individual response. With repeated therapy, it is known that the results tend to last longer.
