Hyperhidrosis is a medical term used to describe excessive sweating. It affects 1% of the population on average. For some people, this can be an embarrassing and troublesome issue and can affect their lifestyle and decrease their self-confidence. Axillary hyperhidrosis affects the underarm area and can cause excessive sweating even without any causative factors such as exercise or heat.
Thankfully, Axillary hyperhidrosis is a very treatable condition. At Celeste Medical, we can offer you safe effective treatment to combat this personal problem. A series of injections are used, and the procedure takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Roughly 6/7 injections are used per underarm. The results are quick with most patients reporting a huge improvement after one week post treatment. The procedure works by blocking the release of Acetylcholine which usually activates the sweat glands. The results usually last 6-9 months and can safely be repeated after this time.
