If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweating, you’re not alone. This condition affects nearly 2-3 percent of the population in the United States and can be a constant source of inconvenience and embarrassment for those who are afflicted by it. Those who suffer from hyperhidrosis often have no other health issues, and just want an effective way to treat the problem and a return to normalcy. That’s where BOTOX® can help.
Excessive underarm sweating is caused by overactive sweat glands that produce sweat even when it’s not hot or when you’re not exercising. The condition generally begins in late adolescence and can continue throughout a person’s life, making everyday life difficult. Dr. Tirgari at Avalon Laser in San Diego understands how this condition can complicate your life and offers BOTOX® injections that help quell the production of excess sweat. Traditionally used for its facial rejuvenation applications, BOTOX® has benefits for excessive underarm sweating, including:
- Immediate relief of excess sweating and odor
- No negative side effects
- Easily maintain symptoms with subsequent injections
- Requires no surgery or downtime
- Cost-effective in comparison to other treatments
BOTOX® injections work by paralyzing the glands and nerves that make you sweat. Compared to other medications that can have negative side-effects, BOTOX® for excessive underarm sweating has no harmful effects and works for up to six months for each treatment session. There is also no recovery time needed post treatment, making this a safe and effective way to combat excessive sweating.
