What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is abnormal excessive sweating that isn’t related to exercising or heat. You may experience a lot of sweating which will cause your clothes to soak, and you may even experience sweat dripping from your hands as well. This kind of excessive sweating has been known to cause social anxiety and embarrassment.
What are the treatments for Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is treated using Botulinum toxin (known as Botox). Botox is a drug that temporarily paralyzes muscles to treat certain muscle conditions, reduce wrinkles and stop excessive sweating. In this case Botox treats Hyperhidrosis by blocking the neurotransmitter that stimulates the sweat glands.
What can I expect from Botox injections?
Botox works by blocking the chemical that activates our sweat glands. Overall, this procedure is quick, painless but most importantly it is very effective for patients who suffer from Hyperhidrosis.
How effective is the treatment for Hyperhidrosis?
Because Botox injections are reducing the overactive nerves that cause excessive sweating, you can expect great results. When your nerves can’t signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat. This can last up to 4 months, but individual results may vary.
