Botox can now be used effectively and safely to treat one of the most embarrassing and socially debilitating conditions – hyperhidrosis. Better known as excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis has no known cure and cannot be kept under control by conventional antiperspirants. The unpleasant effects of hyperhidrosis can push sufferers into isolation, compromising their performance at work and increasing their stress levels.
Botox is, without a doubt, a revolutionary treatment that has changed the way doctors and patients understand hyperhidrosis. Although Botox injections do not cure the condition, the temporary relief they bring is highly appreciated by those affected by it. The effects can last from 6 months to one year.
The principle is very simple. Excessive sweating occurs due to hyperactive sweat glands. Botox injections in the affected areas (underarms, hands, etc.) prevent the nerve endings from communicating with the sweat glands. When the sweat glands become inactive, you stop sweating! Don’t worry – the body has plenty of other sweat glands it can use to keep itself cool.
