Sweating is a normal physiological phenomenon. However, in people with excessive sweating – usually in underarms, hands or feet areas – what is normal for the rest of the population can result in very uncomfortable situations. The good news is that there is a very quick and convenient solution to this unpleasant condition!
One of the ways to control excessive sweating, commonly used by athletes and people in public life, is Botox, which reduces sweating by blocking the nerves that activate the sweat glands.
The treatment is highly efficient, with no side effects or complications. The results are temporary, lasting from 3 to 6 months for hyperhidrosis of the feet and hands, or 6 to 12 months for excessive sweating in the underarm area.
Botox injections are the most popular method for treating the problem of excessive sweating. The treatment is practical, simple, fast, safe and efficient and, most importantly, significantly improves the quality of daily life of people who have hyperhidrosis.
No special tests are required to diagnose hyperhidrosis. The condition is easily determined during the examination, as excessive secretion of the sweat glands is obvious to the physician. Also, talking to the patient will reveal if they often have sweat stains on clothing, even when they cannot be explained by stressful situations, high temperatures, or intense physical activity.
After a doctor’s examination and diagnosis, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the skin. This is followed by placing an occlusive foil, disinfection of the treated area, and injecting the Botox.
Botox injections only take a few minutes.
The effects are noticeable immediately. The effect of the treatment is temporary and lasts from 3 to 6 months for hyperhidrosis of feet and hands, or 6 to 12 months for excessive sweating in the underarm area. After the effects wear off, it is absolutely safe to undergo a new treatment.
Botox hyperhidrosis treatment is suited to everyone who wants to solve the problem of excessive sweating in the underarm, hands or feet areas.
