Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) of the underarms, hands and feet can be treated with injections of a highly diluted form of Botulinum toxin. Dr Zayour injects Botox (or Dysport) superficially into the underarm skin, skin on the palm of the hands, or on the soles of the feet. This weakens the action of the skin's sweat glands which are responsible for excessive perspiration.
A single treatment session can provide months of relief, and injections can be repeated when the excessive perspiration returns. Botulinum toxin can make a great difference in the life of a person with hyperhidrosis.
A more permanent solution is a new minimally invasive laser treatment of the sweat glands associated with excessive sweating.
Dr Zayour uses a special laser to target and ablate the sweat glands within the axillae.
The procedure, done under local anesthesia, is performed with little discomfort to the patient and has demonstrated up to a 96% reduction in sweat.
