Do you sweat through your shirt inspite of anti-perspirant? Do you always wear dark colors so your sweat stains don’t show? Do you avoid holding or shaking hands because of wetness?
Hyperhidrosis is the medical name for excessive, uncontrolled sweating that is not directly caused by exercise or heat. It most commonly affects the underarms, palms, soles and scalp. The cause is uncertain, and there is often a family history.
Hyperhidrosis can significantly impact quality of life with reduced self-confidence, social anxiety and embarrassment.
Botox therapy can provide an effective solution than can be life altering.
What we can do
Botox injections can dramatically reduce hyperhidrosis by blocking the nerves to the sweat glands. Dr. O’Neill is a certified Botox injector, and personally administers this specialized treatment at our Mississauga clinic.
Botox injections have been shown in many studies to significantly improve quality of life for patients experiencing hyperhidrosis.
Although not covered by OHIP, some private insurance may cover a portion of the treatment cost.
