Now that warmer weather is upon us, I have been treating many men and women for a condition known as hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, using BOTOX® for my Walnut Creek area and other northern California patients. If you have ever suffered the embarrassment of underarm sweat stain on your clothes or are self-conscious about how much you sweat, BOTOX may be beneficial.
Here’s how BOTOX can help with hyperhidrosis:
- BOTOX stops sweating by temporarily interrupting the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands.
- Sweat production halts in the treated areas.
- Normal moisture production continues in the rest of your body.
BOTOX injections typically are recommended after other clinical methods of sweat reduction fail. Results from these injections usually last for about 6 months.
In order to determine if you are a good candidate for BOTOX to treat hyperhidrosis, schedule a consultation with a qualified medical professional. Your physician can then evaluate your condition and recommend the appropriate treatment.
