Excessive Sweating or the medical condition known as Hyperhidrosis, is when the body’s sweat glands produce more moisture than normal in the face, palms, hands, feet or armpits. For many people this is an embarrassing medical condition that causes people to lose confidence, avoid confrontation, or go out in public. However, Botox treatment can be used to treat Hyperhidrosis. The professionals at Skintherap, Medical & Cosmetic Spa provide Botox treatment that can help people gain their confidence back.
How Botox Treats Hyperhidrosis
Sweat is produced by our sweat glands. If these glands produce more moisture than normal, then a person suffers from excessive sweating. Botox treats this condition by blocking the chemical signals of the body that cause these sweat glands to produce more moisture. Botox is administered with the help of a series of injections using a small needle. This treatment can be taken on the face, hands, feet, or armpits.
How Long Does the Effect Last?
A Botox treatment will last from six to seven months after which the treatment should be given again to maintain the results.
Risk Factors Associated to Botox
The FDA has approved Botox for over twenty years, and the risks involved are very minimal. If you are considering Botox treatment you should speak with your doctor about the risks involved. Some common side effects include irritation, numbness, swelling or bruising at the injection site, and occasionally, heartburn or headache. After receiving the treatment most of these side effects are gone within a few days.
Does Botox Really Work?
Botox has been reported as an effective form of treatment for excessive sweating by more than 95% of all the patients surveyed. Most of them agree that using antiperspirants and other treatments were not effective. Botox treatment has helped many people change their lives.
