What Is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes the body to produce excessive amounts of sweat unrelated to temperature or physical activity. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis may experience excessive sweating when at rest throughout the day and even while sleeping throughout the night. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis typically experience excessive sweating in their underarms, hands, feet, and face.
The body produces sweat as a way to regulate body temperature and cool the body. Typically, sweating is triggered as a result of high temperatures or due to physical exertion through exercise or heavy lifting. In people who suffer from hyperhidrosis, the nerves that signal the sweat glands to produce sweat or overactive and send signals to the glands even when there is no external trigger.
Treating Hyperhidrosis with Botox
There are a variety of treatments for hyperhidrosis that can be used to help manage the issue and improve the patient’s quality of life. At Marietta Plastic Surgery, we offer Botox injections for the treatment of underarm hyperhidrosis.
Botox is an injectable drug that is known as a popular option for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is a neuromodulator that can prevent nerves from sending signals. This makes it an excellent option for managing hyperhidrosis. A series of Botox injections can be made along the underarms to prevent the nerves from sending signals to the sweat glands which effectively reduces the production of sweat in the area.
Botox injections only provide temporary relief for hyperhidrosis as results will fade after around three months. Routine Botox treatments can be scheduled and performed to help manage hyperhidrosis and provide long-term relief. Our team can work with you based off of your schedule and needs to formulate a personalized treatment plane.
