Botox For Hyperhidrosis

Botox is not only for fine lines and wrinkles, it also can be used for the treatment of excess sweating (hyperhidrosis).

It is not only uncomfortable to be constantly sweating, it is also embarrassing and can infringe on your daily life. Botox works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. A normal functioning nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises to cool the body. However in people with hyperhidrosis, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.

When you receive Botox it is injected directly into the area of your body that has these overactive sweat glands. The Botox essentially paralyzes these nerves so they cannot signal your sweat glands to sweat. It is a wonderful treatment for people who truly struggle with excessive sweating.
