Excessive Sweat Management

Posted: August 6, 2017 By: Comment: 0

Excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, is a very treatable condition. It is described as sweating beyond what is necessary to cool the body. The most common areas affected are the hands and underarms. Hyperhidrosis can have a serious impact on self-confidence, personal relationships and even career success.

At DFRx, we offer Botox® injections which can help to eliminate sweat in specifically targeted areas, such as the underarms. This is a proven safe and effective treatment—approved by Health Canada.

  • Botox® injections consist of treating the affected area—with localized injections using an ultra-fine needle.
  • Treatment results (a sweat-free underarm) will last between four to seven months and generally eliminates odour as well.
  • Repeat injections should be administered when effects from previous injections diminish.
  • Most private drug plans will help to cover the cost of Botox® for the treatment of hyperhidrosis.
