Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, affects hands, feet, underarms or face, and is characterized by episodes occurring at least once a week on both sides of the body. For severe underarm sweating, BOTOX injections were FDA-approved in 2004 as an effective, non-surgical treatment. The neurotoxin in BOTOX affects the sweat glands, halting the production of perspiration.
How can BOTOX treat excessive sweating?
The neurotoxin in BOTOX affects the nerve signals that trigger the sweat glands to produce perspiration. If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating, it is an embarrassing and uncomfortable condition, and could cause you to avoid certain types of social activities, negatively affecting your overall quality of life. The BOTOX injections into the armpits, hands, or feet, working by affecting the nerves that trigger sweating, for relief from the condition – and a happier, more confident life.
