Hyperhidrosis is also known as excessive sweating. It’s normal for people who suffer from hyperhidrosis to feel awkward, avoid certain types of clothing or feel forced to wear layers to hide sweat marks. Sweating is normal from our entire bodies; however, most people agree that underarm sweating is especially problematic and is embarrassing and uncomfortable.
For people experiencing this issue, and when topical treatments used on the skin don’t work, there are medical treatments available. At Weston HCG Center, we offer BOTOX® treatments, which have been approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of acute underarm sweating. When you get a Botox® neurotoxin injection, it’s injected directly into the affected areas, temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that make those sweat glands produce. When the treated sweat glands don’t receive the chemical signals, severe sweating ceases.
The Botox® injection treatment eliminates the sweat glands’ ability to produce excessive sweat by temporarily damaging both the fat and the glands. For patient comfort, this procedure is done under local anesthesia and results in little downtime once the procedure is complete. Results are often immediate.
In clinical trials, the average treatment lasted about 7 months. Botox® injections are not a permanent cure for hyperhidrosis. Your symptoms will gradually return. Routine treatments can help you effectively manage your condition.
Botox® is one of the most widely researched medicines in the world, and been found to be safe. Since 2004, Botox® has been approved to treat excessive underarm sweating. Today, thousands of treatments have been performed.
