For years, people have turned to BOTOX in the Lexington, KY area to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles around the upper portion of the face. However, many women and men are unaware that this popular treatment also can help reduce hyperhidrosis – excessive and unexpected sweating.
Extreme underarm sweating can interfere with the way you interact with other people because it causes embarrassing and uncomfortable sweat stains. Many people find that excessive sweating limits their clothing options, and they end up choosing outfits based on their ability to conceal this condition.
Doctors often recommend BOTOX for people with severe sweating who have tried topical solutions without success. Injections of BOTOX into the problem areas block chemical signals that stimulate sweat glands. The treatment is easy and effective, and most patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after the injections.
While some patients use BOTOX regularly to control ongoing problems with excessive sweating, I recommend to others that they try it before important events such as weddings, parties and important meetings. If you have questions about your options for correcting hyperhidrosis, I recommend seeking a doctor with experience in this field to help you find the perfect solution.
