Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
If underarm sweating is causing you embarrassment and interfering with your daily routine a muscle relaxation treatment may be the answer for you.

Severe underarm sweating is a medical condition which is known as primary axillary hyperhidrosis. The condition is caused by overactive sweat glands. Your body's temperature is regulated by sweat, when suffering with hyperhidrosis sweat significantly exceeds the body's usual requirements for cooling.

Muscle relaxation treatments work by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands fail to receive chemical signals, the severe sweating ceases.
  
The Treatment
It is a relatively straight forward treatment. A small amount of the muscle relaxant is injected into the underarm area using a very fine needle. You will receive multiple injections based on your doctor's assessment of the area being treated.

The treatment usually lasts for approximately 6 months, you will become aware when a further injection is required.
