Excessive Underarm Sweating
Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) is a common problem that can be both embarrassing and unsightly. The condition is caused by the body over producing liquid (sweat). It is normal for the body to sweat when we get hot, for example when we exercise. However, this can be problematic if we are sweating excessively when our body is relaxed and does not need to cool down.
There are many causes of excessive sweating including hormonal changes, medications, stress and it can also occur for no reason at all.
Botox injections can be a treatment option for people with Hyperhidrosis, when excessive sweating fails to improve with prescription antiperspirants. Botox has been FDA-approved for people who sweat excessively from their armpits and works amazingly well, which can be life changing for the sufferer.
How can Botox® help?
Botox works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. People with Hyperhidrosis have overactive nerves that signal the sweat glands.
When you receive Botox injections directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, your overactive nerves are essentially paralysed. When your nerves can’t signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat.
