Sweat is a natural reaction of the body; however there are times it can get out of control.
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) although not serious, can leave one feeling self-conscious and uncomfortable in day-to-day life.
There are two types of hyperhidrosis. In the majority of cases, hyperhidrosis is localized. Secondary hyperhidrosis (also called generalized hyperhidrosis) causes excessive sweating all over the body or in a larger area of the body.
If general antiperspirants are not effective, Botox is FDA approved for treating Hyperhidrosis in the underarms, and can be a great safe and effective way to find relief. It is a quick and effective procedure with long lasting results.
Botox is injected near the sweat glands located in the underarms. Botox blocks the nerves from signaling and stimulating these sweat glands. Results start within the week and the patient can be confident that their underarms will be dry and sweat free for up to 6 months.
Knowing that you don’t have to bring that extra shirt with you, or constantly keep your arms to your sides leaves you feeling confident, relaxed and ready to for that next big social event.
