Excessive underarm and palm sweating can be damaging to your confidence!
Medical term for excessive sweating is "Primary Hyperhidrosis" and can effect underarms, palms and soles. This occurs due to overactive sweat glands which produce lot more sweat than required for cooling.
There are several medical management options of excess sweating without compromising safety and efficacy.
Anti-perspirants and deodorants are the first line treatment. Over the counter and prescription antiperspirants work by blocking sweat ducts, thus reducing the amount of sweat reaching the skin surface. These methods, however do not work efficiently for individuals suffering from primary hyperhidrosis.
For those who do not have adequate control of sweating with topical agents, injection of Botox or Dysport into the affected area temporarily blocks the nerve signals to the sweat glads, reducing sweating of the treated area for 2-5 months depending on individual variations in response. BOTOX is FDA-approved for excess underarm sweating (primary hyperhidrosis).
Experience & technique matter for best results.
We have been treating hyperhidrosis with Botox for over 5 years. In our office, we test the treatment area for "islands" of excess sweating and inject the smallest amount of BOTOX, precisely into the area affected for best results.
