Botox Treatment For Excessive Sweating.

USING BOTOX FOR HYPERHIDROSIS.

Botox Treatment For Excessive Sweating is a simple solution for Hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating is a common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness. An estimated 2%-3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). The condition can be due to an underlying health condition, or have no apparent cause.

 

The easiest way to tackle excessive sweating is with an antiperspirant, which most people already use on a daily basis. Most antiperspirants contain aluminum salts. When you roll them onto your skin, antiperspirants form a plug that blocks perspiration.

 

Another treatment option for heavy sweating is injections of botulinum toxin A (Botox), the same medicine used for wrinkles. Botox Injections are FDA-approved for treating excessive sweating of the underarms, but some doctors may also use it on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Botox Injections work by preventing the release of a chemical that signals the sweat glands to activate. You may need to have several Botox injections, but the results can last four months to a year.
