Sweating is our body’s way of cooling and releasing toxins. Yet severe sweating of the feet can be a real nuisance as well as embarrassing problem for some.
Although hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is not an illness, it is a condition that can seriously alter ones daily life. Hyperhidrosis may cause discomfort, rashes, strong odors and in some cases severe infection
Treatments for sweaty feet have included: Antiperspirants, powders, foot baths, and Iontophoresis.
If sweating becomes uncomfortable and embarrassing, then it’s probably time for a medical solution.
Botox injections are a popular treatment choice for underarm excessive sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) and can also be used to manage excessive sweating on the hands and feet as well.
Botox is often the medical treatment choice for excessive perspiration of the feet. It is a relatively quick procedure where small amounts of Botox are injected into focal areas of the feet. These injections are placed just under the skin using a very fine needle. Any discomfort is usually minimal.
Studies have shown that 93% of patients experienced a reduction in sweating of the treated area within one week. Typically, Botox injections in the feet tend to “wear off” in 3 to 4 months.
Botox is the only prescription treatment medication for hyperhidrosis that is approved by Health Canada. For more information on Botox Injections for the feet, visit us at Lasting Looks Clinic in Toronto http://www.lastinglooks.ca/botox-toronto/
