Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, as it is often known, can be an unpleasant condition for both the person suffering and for others around them. Some people with hyperhidrosis can sweat up to five times more than is needed for the body to use the sweating system as it should to reduce heat, and cool down the body.
For most people, anti-perspirants and regular washing are adequate to keep sweating in control without any embarrassing situations where your sweat becomes unmanageable. If you suffer from excessive sweating, trying to control the flow of sweat can often end up leaving you panicked and stressed, which has the adverse effect of making you sweat more.
One of the most popular and effective ways to deal with sweat is to use Botox to halt the nerve which triggers the production of sweat.
How does it work?
During the procedure, Botox is injected into certain areas of the skin where sweat is produced in excess. The Botox works by blocking the nerves that supply the eccrine gland, in turn preventing the glands from producing sweat. The product within Botox is botulinum toxin, which has been used safely for many years to suit a wide range of treatments across the body and face. After your treatment, you'll be able to return to your normal day, whether that's work or leisure, within 20 minutes.
Is it effective?
There are several reasons why Botox is such a popular solution to excess sweating, including the almost non-existent recovery time. Compared to other cosmetic procedures, the injections are non-invasive and almost entirely pain free, with people reporting to feel only a tiny pinprick as the needle reaches the skin. The results can be seen within the month of treatment and usually last up to six months.
