If you’re reading this article then its most likely that you are having issues with sweating. Stress, high temperatures, or you having a hot body (the bad kind) will cause the pits of your arms to sweat and your shirts to be ruined. There is a cure for this problem though and its through botox treatments!
Hyperhydrosis – what is it and do I have it?
Hyperhydrosis, or excessive sweating is a condition that affects millions of men and women around the world. It occurs in the axilla (armpits), face, palms and soles of the feet.
High temperatures or stress can cause excessive perspiration, and sometimes an inherited condition stops the body from properly regulating its temperature. Hyperhidrosis can be embarrassing and cause social problems for some sufferers – from self-conscious adolescents to business people, of those of us just wanting to preserve our good clothing over the summer months.
Treating Hyperhidrosis with Botox injection
Botox is injected into the sweat glands of the affected area. The procudure is basically painless and only takes a few minutes. The treatement will last approximately six – nine months and when the affects wear off you can return for another botox treatment.
Hyperhydrosis is safely treated with Botox, a natural, purified protein. A series of localised injections in the armpit area, blocks the release of a chemical that signals the perspiration. The aim of the treatment is to reduce sweating to a normal level which patients find tolerable.
