Increased sweating is a normal response to a rise in body temperature, and to emotions such as anxiety. Most people suffering from hyperhidrosis will have tried commercial antiperspirants. If these fail, and if the sweating is bad enough to interfere with your work or social activities, contact Yourderm.ca.
During your complimentary consultation, all of the options can be discussed, and you can learn about which one would best address your areas of concern.
Treatment is customized for each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry Handpiece. The miraDry procedure is non-invasive; it involves no surgical incisions or cuts. Prior to the procedure, temporary markings are placed on the skin to guide treatment, and local anesthesia is administered to the underarms to maintain patient comfort.
The total patient appointment time is generally 60 minutes, with treatment itself taking approximately 40 minutes. Custom software guides you or your staff through the process, making it easy to conduct the procedure.
Most patients notice sweat reduction immediately after the procedure. Two procedures are typically recommended three months apart to maximize the results and duration.

Botox® is injected into the skin to treat symptoms of severe underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough in people 18 years and older.
The duration of response in patients receiving Botox® treatment is approximately 7 months. Individual results may vary.
