Most people aren’t aware that excessive sweating is actually a medical condition called “hyperhidrosis”, for which treatment is available. If your quality of life is affected due to irregular levels of perspiration in your underarms or palms, BOTOX® injections could be the perfect solution for you.

In 2001, BOTOX® was approved by Health Canada as a therapeutic treatment option for localized excessive sweating (also known as “hyperhidrosis”). While BOTOX® is not a permanent cure for the condition, it significantly reduces the production of sweat for several months, in both men and women.

So how does it work? BOTOX® reduces excessive sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate your sweat glands. During treatments, Dr. Rouzati uses a tiny needle to inject a small amount of BOTOX® into the problem area. The appointment only takes 15 minutes!

Patients are able to leave immediately after their treatment, and results appear within a few days. Imagine being able to raise your arms without fear, or being able to buy light-coloured shirts!
