Did you know Botox can treat Hyperhidrosis?
There is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating. The word “hyperhidrosis” means too much sweating. Excessive sweating happens when a person sweats more than is necessary. It is necessary to sweat, as sweating cools the body. However, people who have hyperhidrosis, sweat when the body does not need cooling.
People with hyperhidrosis most often sweat from their palms, feet, underarms, or head. While the rest of the body remains dry, these areas may excessively sweat.
Excessive sweating can interfere with everyday activities. Hands can be slippery. Sweat from the underarms may soak through clothes, and forehead sweating may irritate the eyes. Fortunately, Botox can be safely used to manage this condition. A treatment takes several minutes, and can last 4-6 months.
