Is sweating under your arms causing visible stains on your clothes?
Are you worried about thin clothes showing sweat stains?
Are your palms sweaty when you hold the hand of your loved one?
Most likely you do, as hyperhidrosis (or heavy sweating) is an extremely common, awkward and sometimes embarrassing phenomenon. Anyone dealing with hyperhidrosis will quickly tell you of the million ways he or she will sweat without cause or purpose.
The disconcerting fact about hyperhidrosis is that it is so inexplicable and frustratingly ambiguous. You could be in perfectly good shape, both physically and mentally, nor be suffering from any other medical ailments or conditions, and still be sweating excessively day and night.
We cannot count how many patients have come to us describing a nightmarish routine of wardrobe changes and antiperspirant shopping throughout the week. Antiperspirants like deodorant are of course very common, but only mask and plug certain aspects of an excessively sweating gland, they do not curb or even mildly treat hyperhidrosis.
Botox for Heavy Sweating
For us and our patients, the nearly permanent, scientifically proven and powerful results of Botox on the sweat glands is far and away the best option to treat excessive sweating.
Injecting botulinum toxin (Botox) into the sweat glands under the arms, palms or other areas of the body prevents the release of a chemical that signals the sweat glands to activate. Healthline reports that “studies have found that Botox successfully treats sweaty palms in 80 to 90 percent of cases… Studies also show that Botox works to treat forehead sweat. It can reduce sweating by 75 percent for about five months.” The rate of success for underarm sweating is over 90 percent in almost all cases.
Even better, the treatment itself is quick, painless, and extremely affordable. The treatment lasts the length of a short office visit, whereby a board-certified physician will inject a few units of Botox in precise locations to neutralize the overactive and excessively perspiring nerves.
For anyone struggling with excessive sweating – whether a student, professional, laborer or otherwise – Botox is a highly effective treatment that will put an end to the hellish daily struggle of moist armpits and sweaty palms.
