Hyperhidrosis BotoxDo you feel like you sweat more than you should? Have you tried every tip and trick in the book, but nothing seems to help you stay dry? You may be living with hyperhidrosis, but you have options to treat your condition.
What is Hyperhidrosis?Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition related to excessive sweating. This excessive sweating occurs regardless of factors such as heat or level of activity. Excessive sweating from this condition commonly occurs in areas such as your hands, underarms, head or feet.
It may be time to consider treatment for if:
- You are sweating more than usual.
- You are constantly sweating through your clothing.
- Your mood or emotional well-being are negatively affected by your sweating.
- Your daily routine has been impacted by sweating.
What are my options to treat Hyperhidrosis?We offer Botox as a treatment for hyperhidrosis of the underarms. Botox is an injectable neuromodulator. This means it can block nerves from interacting with muscles to give them signals to perform certain actions. When the underarms are selected as the treatment site, Botox can help block and prevent the glands from sweating an abnormal amount.
What can I expect?Botox is a non-surgical, minimally invasive method to help reduce excess sweating. This injectable treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our clinic. There is no set downtime following the procedure, which simply involves a minor injection performed by one of our medical injectors.
Botox can decrease how much you sweat for up to six months, but results will vary.
Additional treatments may be required to help achieve and maintain the results you are looking for.
A consultation with a member of our team will help you decide if this is the right method for you to treat your hyperhidrosis as well as develop a treatment plan to help you stay dry.
