What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that is characterized by sweating or perspiration in excess of the normal needs of the body. This can be socially crippling, embarrassing, restrict clothing choice and destroy clothes.
Primary Hyperhidrosis is not due to any particular underlying reason and can be seen as excessive sweating in the palms, feet, underarms, face and/or scalp. Most people with excessive sweating have Primary Hyperhidrosis.
Secondary Hyperhidrosis is a result of an underlying medical condition such as infection, endocrine disorders, metabolic disorders, cancers, neurological conditions, spinal cord injuries, cardiovascular disorders, respiratory disorders, anxiety and stress. The treatment of Secondary Hyperhidrosis requires treatment of the underlying problem or cause, although sometimes Botox can be helpful in treating the symptoms.
How can Botox help?
Botox® temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, severe sweating is reduced. Botox® reduces localized excessive sweating by more than 80%, bringing your sweating back to normal. This simple 15-20 minute procedure is well tolerated and has no downtime. Results last on average about 6-12 months and can often last longer with repeated treatments.
