Botox doesn’t only have aesthetic benefits. In addition to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and other fine lines in the face, a Botox treatment can be used to help patients who suffer from a medical condition known as Hyperhidrosis. Patients with Hyperhidrosis experience profuse and uncontrollable sweating. While sweating helps the body cool off and is natural in warmer temperatures, during exercise, or nervous situations, Hyperhidrosis is unpredictable and can occur without these triggers.
Don’t Sweat It!
Sweating is normal, especially on a hot day or after a workout, but if you or someone you know sweats even when sitting still or in cooler temperatures, it may be due to Hyperhidrosis. This condition can affect both men and women, and many patients who come to us feel uncomfortable and even embarrassed about their abundant perspiration.
Fortunately, Botox is available as a temporary treatment for people with excessive underarm sweating. FDA-approved to alleviate Hyperhidrosis, small injections of Botox into the underarm areas will block the nerves that trigger the production of sweat.
No longer be embarrassed to remove your sweater or jacket; consider Botox treatment to control your sweating. The procedure’s effects are temporary, lasting anywhere between seven and nine months. If you believe you could benefit from this treatment, schedule an initial consultation. We can give you more information and let you know if the procedure is right for you.
