Hyperhidrosis is characterized by unnaturally excessive sweating that is not usually brought on by either heat or physical activity. Your body may produce so much sweat that it soaks through your clothes or splatters off your hands. This heavy perspiration can induce social anxiety and embarrassment, in addition to disrupting normal daily activities.
Botox, most commonly associated with reducing wrinkles in cosmetic procedures, is also an exceptionally efficient treatment for focal hyperhidrosis. Injections of botulinum toxin, which are used in treating hyperhidrosis with botox, block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, thereby preventing the sweat glands from generating excessive sweat.
As the nerves regenerate, follow-up treatment is typically required between four and six months later. On the other hand, patients can experience longer intervals between treatments as time goes on.
However, before you consider Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis, you might want to consider its risks before trying it.
