Sweating

Sweating excessively or hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Sweating is the body’s way of regulating your body temperature. People with excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis significantly exceed the body’s normal requirements for cooling.

The primary cause of hyperhidrosis is unknown but often runs in families and can begin at a young age. Excessive sweating affects more than a million people in Canada. In order to maintain a normal body temperature, people with this condition sweat up to four times more than normal.

Available Treatments

BOTOX® Therapeutic

BOTOX® treatment injections (Botulinum toxin type A) help control the symptoms of excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. BOTOX® temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands no longer receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
