BOTOX For Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating, affects the face, feet, hands or underarms. Someone who has hyperhidrosis sweats more than is physically necessary for the body and even when they don’t need a cool down. Symptoms occur at least once a week on both sides of the body. For this reason, BOTOX injections for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) was approved by the FDA in 2004 as a non-surgical, effective treatment.
How Can BOTOX Treat Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)?
The neurotoxins in BOTOX halts the production of perspiration by affecting the sweat glands. For those who suffer from excessive underarm sweating, even clinical strength antiperspirant often does not work. It can be embarrassing to carry extra clothing or avoid certain activities that trigger the condition.
The BOTOX injections into the feet, armpits, or hands work by affecting the nerves that trigger sweating. These injections provide relief from the condition, as well as a more confident life.
