ABOUT THIS CONDITION:


Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that defines individuals who sweat more than the body would normally need to maintain optimal temperature It affects approximately 3% of the population – some 950,000 Canadians – of whom 300,000 have a severe form of the disorder.  Hyperhidrosis affects work productivity, confidence, social comfort, emotional well being and wardrobe choices. Studies show that hyperhidrosis impacts quality of life similar to or even greater than other well-known dermatological conditions, such as severe acne or psoriasis.  It has also been shown that only 38% of hyperhidrosis sufferers talk to a health care professional about their condition. People rarely seek help because many are unaware that excessive sweating is a treatable medical disorder.   Book your complimentary confidential consult with Dr Allen today and see if this effective treatment would work for you. 

Treatment for hyperhidrosis is typically covered under most health care plans and typically the patient only pays the injection fee.  We'd be happy to provide you with the information you need to look into this.


HOW IT WORKS:


BOTOX® works by blocking the release of acetylcholine at the nerve endings, thus, temporarily, turning off the stimulation of the sweat gland. Once our Physicians have determined your sweat intensity they will decide the recommended dose of BOTOX® per area. One of our doctors will administer the BOTOX® into the chosen treatment area.
