EXCESSIVE SWEATING TREATMENT
INJECTIONS FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING
Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is the condition were a person sweats more than they are comfortable with. It may happen when the weather or room is warm or when the person is stressed or embarrassed. Sometimes it happens for no apparent reason. It often begins to become a problem at puberty and increasingly worsens with age and certain life events such as getting a new job, pregnancy or menopause for example.
It can occur in various areas of the body such as underarm, hands, feet, face or scalp. It can be upsetting and embarrassing for the sufferer and difficult to prevent or treat. Over the counter antiperspirants are ineffective or inappropriate for the area affected.
The use of sub-dermal injections of BOTOX over the affected area have been found to be effective in reducing or eliminating sweating.
It will take between two and seven days for you to stop sweating in the treated area. It can take two weeks for total dryness.The effects of Botox are temporary, which means you'll need more injections in the future. For underarm sweating, dryness can last anywhere from four to fourteen months
ARE INJECTIONS TO PREVENT SWEATING PAINFUL?
The injections are superficial so there is minimal discomfort. If the area is sensitive a numbing gel can be applied 20 minutes or so prior to the treatment.
The patient may experience slight bruising and tenderness in the area treated but this is quickly resolved in one or two days.
