Don’t stress over excessive sweating. It can be treated effectively with botox injections

Hyperhidrosis is a condition where sufferers experience excessive perspiration. While usually localized in the underarms, face, hands and feet, hyperhidrosis can also be generalized throughout the entire body. It is not uncommon for those with hyperhidrosis to go through several changes of clothing throughout the day and often has a negative effect on self-esteem. While considered by many to be embarassing, hyperhidrosis is surprisingly common, affecting 1%-2% of Canadian adults. In more severe cases, it can lead to painful and irritating skin conditions, such as fungal and bacterial infections. Despite the social stigma attached to sweating, few sufferers have spoken about it with their doctor or even know about any treatment options.

WHAT CAUSES HYPERHIDROSIS?

In the past, hyperhidrosis was thought to be caused by a person’s mental or emotional state, and that the condition itself was purely psychological and only affected those experiencing great amounts of anxiety or stress. According to recent studies, however, research has shown that sufferers of hyperhidrosis are no more/no less prone to nervousness or emotional distress than the rest of the population.

HYPERHIDROSIS TREATMENT METHOD

Botox is a well known anti-aging treatment, but did you know it can also be used to treat severe sweating? Botox (botulinum toxin type A), consists of a purified protein produced by a bacterium. Botox is an FDA and Health Canada approved prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and can be used to treat chronic migraines, cervical dystonia, eyelid spasms and even those suffering from crossed eyes.
Using a very fine needle, Botox is injected into the affected area, blocking the release of a chemical in the nervous system responsible for the activation of sweat glands, known as acetylcholine. Localized tenderness or bruising following the treatment is normal, and usually subsides within a day.

BENEFITS OF TREATING HYPERHIDROSIS

Treatments take no more than half an hour.
Zero side effects or downtime, and any mild swelling subsides within a day.
Minimal discomfort with no anesthesia required.
