Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is very common and most often affects the axillae (armpits), but may also affect the palms and feet, and/or head and face. 

Botulinum toxin injections have been proven to be effective in treating hyperhidrosis in patients where simple measures such as aluminium containing anti-perspirants have been unsuccessful.

Treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis is PBS-reimbursed (meaning the government will cover the cost of the botulinum toxin and part of the procedure cost through medicare).  ** Only if the injections are performed by a trained Neurologist or Dermatologist
