Learn about Botox for Hyperhidrosis.
Everyone sweats, it’s the body’s way of regulating our temperature and keeping us cool. About 3% of the population suffers from a condition called hyperhidrosis, which causes excessive sweating. Our bodies contain anywhere from 2 million to 4 million sweat glands. Hyperhidrosis can occur in any region of the body – the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, face, scalp, etc. It’s most common in the underarms, though.
Do You Have Hyperhidrosis?
There’s no clinical measure of how much sweat is too much sweat. But, if your perspiration interferes with your daily life – if it is something you find yourself thinking about often, that’s a good indication you have hyperhidrosis. Other indications are that you change clothes often because they’re drenched in sweat, you think about the absorbency of the clothing you’re wearing, or you avoid certain clothes because they show perspiration more vividly.
Why Excess Sweating is a Problem
Too much perspiration isn’t harmful to the health. For many hyperhidrosis sufferers, though, it is harmful to the self-confidence. Any condition that causes discomfort or embarrassment negatively impacts your quality of life. Fortunately, there is help available for excess sweating — and it’s much more powerful than even the heaviest-duty antiperspirant. You’re probably aware that Botox is effective for minimizing the appearance of fine lines, furrows, and wrinkles between the brows, around the eyes, and on the forehead. You may not know that it’s also FDA approved to treat severe underarm sweating
Why Try Botox for Hyperhidrosis?
Every individual is different, but Botox injections have been clinically proven to significantly reduce underarm sweating in many patients – quickly and for a long period of time. Many people report relief after just one treatment. Even better? In some cases that relief lasts more than 200 days! Botox is safe, and works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that cause sweat glands in the treatment area from creating sweat.
