What Is Hyperhidrosis?
This condition causes excessive sweating. People who suffer from symptoms of this condition often feel uncomfortable in their bodies, having to refrain from wearing some styles of clothing or opting to wear extra layers to cover up. However, with more layers of clothing, the more likely you are to sweat, especially in warm weather. This can often exacerbate the problem. While people sweat from just about everywhere there is skin, most people find that underarm sweating is particularly problematic. It can be uncomfortable and embarrassing.
How To Stop Excessive Underarm Sweating
For people suffering from this condition, there are treatments available. These can include office procedures such as BOTOX treatments .
BOTOX® is approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough. BOTOX neurotoxin is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
How it Works
The treatment damages both the fat and the glands, eliminating their ability to produce excess sweat. It is completed under local anesthesia for patient comfort. There is little downtime after completion, and results are often instantaneous.
How Long Does It Last?
In clinical trials, the median treatment duration was 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.
Is it Safe?
Botox is one of the most widely researched medicines in the world, so you know it’s safe. Since 2004 Botox has been approved to treat excessive underarm sweating. Today, thousands of treatments have been performed.
