What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating, is a disorder that can cause significant discomfort and even embarrassment. Most often, this condition affects the hands, feet, and armpits. The associated sweating may not even be in response to exercise or warmth, making it a huge inconvenience that can cause you to sweat through your clothing at inopportune times. As a result, many people pursue excessive sweating treatment to eliminate these symptoms.
How is Hyperhidrosis Treated?
One of the most effective hyperhidrosis treatments is Botox®. Although it is most often used to address wrinkles in the face, the neurotoxins in the formula can help prevent sweating by blocking signals to the sweat glands. This completely prevents sweating in the treated areas. In less severe cases or for patients who are just beginning hyperhidrosis treatment, we may recommend a topical treatment. These topical solutions dry the skin to decrease sweating, and can also be very effective.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
Botox® takes effect within a few days of treatment, reducing the amount of sweating in the treated areas. Within a week, patients should notice the full results of treatment, with a significant reduction in sweating that lasts for approximately six months. With topical treatments, patients will gradually notice an improvement in their symptoms that can be maintained with regular use of the product.
