Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating, which can greatly affect your quality of life. One might think that the person suffering from hyperhidrosis is very nervous or sick, when this is not the case at all. Fortunately, modern medicine is more familiar with this problem and offers ways to correct it.
The consulting doctors at Clinique Laser Dagenais offer you treatment with BOTOX® (botulinum toxin type A). This treatment consists of a series of small injections under the armpits.
The procedure lasts only about fifteen minutes and is reimbursable by private insurance as it is a treatment recognized by Health Canada. BOTOX® blocks the activity of the gland muscles that cause excessive sweating and reduces or completely stops it. The action of Botox lasts from 6 to 10 months, after which a new treatment is recommended.
