Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is a condition that affects many Australians, particularly during the days of summer. It can be an emotional burden as well as socially and professionally disruptive. An effective treatment of this condition is the application of botulinum toxin injections, which effectively shuts down the neurological stimulation of the affected sweat glands. The treatment, like anti-wrinkle injections, involves many small injections into the affected region. Results are rapid and there is no downtime which is why this treatment is so popular.
