Botox for Excess Sweating
Excessive sweating can be embarrassing and inconvenient. It can also interfere with sleep – no-one likes to wake up drenched in sweat.
Excessive sweating is called “hyperhidrosis.”
If you are looking for a cure for hyperhidrosis, consider Botox.
How to Stop Excessive Sweating with Botox
Botox for excess sweating blocks the chemical signals that stimulate sweat glands temporarily.
When the sweat glands don’t receive the signals that turn them on, this leads to a reduction in severe sweating.
The amount of sweat that would be normally produced by those sweat glands will not go anywhere, and it won’t get backed up.
Why? Sweat is simply not released in the areas treated with Botox.
Of course, sweat will continue to be produced in certain areas where Botox is not applied.
Our focus, in using Botox for excess sweating, is to target those areas that sweat the most, such as the armpits, leaving enough untreated sweat glands so you can produce a healthy amount of sweat.
Botox in treated areas can last up to 7 months.
