Gain the Confidence that Comes Along with Looking and Feeling Your Best.
Hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating – is a medical condition involving up to 10 times the typical amounts of perspiration. That’s a far cry from normal, and stained underarms and a sweaty handshake just don’t cut it in the real world. Yet, 1 in 5 people report experiencing perspiration levels that range from social embarrassment to professionally debilitating.
What causes uncontrolled sweating?
The cause of hyperhidrosis is actually unknown, but is believed to be due to over-stimulation of the nerves that control the sweat glands in response to heightened emotion such as nervousness or stress as well as to stimulants such as nicotine and caffeine.
What Are My Options to Stop Heavy Sweating?
In most cases of heavy sweating, strong antiperspirants and medications to reduce stress or anxiety may not be effective enough. In these cases, Botox injections for sweating have shown to be highly effective by blocking the activation of sweat glands at the site of injection. Areas commonly treated with Botox to stop sweating include the underarm, the hands (to treat sweaty palms), the bottom of the feet, the scalp, face, groin, and lower back. In-office Botox injection procedures for sweating take about 30 minutes and will reach maximum effectiveness in 5-7 days. Results typically last 3-9 months depending on the dosage, injection site and the individual.
Is There a Way to Permanently Eliminate Sweat Glands Under the Armpits?
In individuals who respond well to blockage of the underarm sweat glands by Botox, the option to permanently remove the sweat and odor glands using radiofrequency (RF) technology is available. Studies show that 90% of the underarm sweat and odor glands can be permanently eliminated after 2-3 treatments using RF technology. No more heavy sweating, no more social embarrassment and no need for repeated needle sticks from Botox injection treatments.
