Botox For Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Sweating when you are feeling hot or are under some stress, physically or mentally, is expected. However, if you are someone who experiences excessive sweating even under normal conditions, you may have Hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is the medical terminology for excessive sweating that is not due to heat or exercise. It can be a source of social anxiety and embarrassment for many people, not to mention how uncomfortable it can get for someone with Hyperhidrosis.
Usually, the first line of treatment is prescription-strength antiperspirants and medications. In some extreme cases, the removal of sweat glands may be suggested. However, a non-invasive and highly potent therapy does exist for Hyperhidrosis – BOTOX!
You may associate the word Botox only with facial fillers; however, botulinum toxin has various properties that allow it to be used for treating a wide variety of cases.
At B at the Top, we offer Botox treatments for Hyperhidrosis!
Where can Botox be used for Hyperhidrosis?
One of the most common areas for sweating is the underarm region. The hair and the entrapped bacteria worsen the situation by releasing a funky smell. This is where Botox for armpits comes to the rescue.
Areas that are frequently affected by excessive sweating and can be treated by Botox for Sweating:
- Underarms (Armpits)
- Under breast region
How does Botox work for excessive sweating?
Botox is the brand name for Botulinum Toxin and works by blocking the chemicals, thus blocking the nerve signals that suggest your sweat glands to produce sweat. Botox only affects the production of sweat; your sense of touch and sensation will remain intact in the injected area.
The action of Botox is temporary and results in dryness in the injected area that can last from 6 to 12 months, depending on individual body types. It reduces moisture by up to 85%, ensuring you are comfortable and live an active life without feeling conscious.
However, it is essential to remember that Botox decreases the amount of sweat produced but does not entirely obliterate it. It also helps eliminate the funky smell from the armpits since foul odour-producing bacteria can no longer proliferate in a dry environment.
Where can you safely get Botox injections for excessive sweating?
If you have decided that you want to get a handle on the problem of excessive sweating, then it is vital to get your treatment done from the right place.
Therefore, you must consult a board-certified dermatologist near you, like Dr. Kristen Kupyen, to treat Hyperhidrosis.
