Botox® for Excessive Sweating? Yes!

Excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes an unusual amount of sweat. The word “hyperhidrosis” means too much (hyper) sweating (hidrosis).

Excessive sweating happens when a person sweats more than is necessary. Sweating cools the body which prevents us from overheating but people with hyperhidrosis sweat when the body does not need cooling.

Many people who have hyperhidrosis sweat from one or two areas of the body. Most often, they sweat from their palms, feet or underarms. While the rest of the body remains dry, one or two areas may drip with sweat.

This excessive sweating can interfere with everyday activities. Hands can be so sweaty that it becomes difficult to turn a doorknob or use a computer. Sweat from the underarms often soaks through clothes, causing obvious sweat marks. Because the skin is often wet, skin infections can develop.

Botox® can treat this condition with results lasting 6 to 9 months. To treat excessive sweating, a patient will need to have very tiny amounts injected in several spots of the affected area. When performed properly, patients have little pain or discomfort.

How Botox® Works for Hyperhidrosis Treatment

The injections temporarily block a chemical in the body that stimulates the sweat glands. Most patients notice results within 3 to 10 days after receiving treatment. When the treatment wears off, your condition will return to its previous state at which time you can come back to be retreated.

Tonya Reber RN, MSN, Cosmetic Nurse Injector has had great success in treating patients with this condition. Call us at Renaissance Plastic Surgery to schedule your free consultation and receive a discounted rate during the month of July.
