BOTOX® is a powerful, FDA-approved purified protein solution that’s been helping people improve their lives and achieve their cosmetic goals for several decades. Most commonly, this potent injectable is used to relax dynamic wrinkles around the lips and eyes, and at the brow. If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, however, this solution can also provide the relief and confidence that you’ve been searching for. After a short treatment session, BOTOX® can eliminate the need for costly prescription antiperspirants, and the fear of of finding yourself covered in excess sweat during important presentations, events, and social situations.
How BOTOX® Treats Hyperhidrosis
The primary function of BOTOX® is to temporarily prevent muscle functioning by blocking the nerve signals that control specific muscles or muscle groups. For instance, when BOTOX® is injected at the brow or around the eyes, it can eliminate crow’s feet or frown lines by relaxing the very muscles that cause these cosmetic issues in the first place. When used for hyperhidrosis, this injectable effectively blocks the chemical that’s responsible for activating the sweat glands. This in turn keeps the sweat glands from copious amounts of sweat so that patients can remain comfortable, confident and dry for extended periods of time. With this treatment, you can look forward to having dry underarms, feet, head, and hands for months at a time.
Why Choose BOTOX® to Address Excessive Sweating?
BOTOX® resolves hyperhidrosis internally so that there’s no need to smear on pasty antiperspirant products or wear heavy, absorbent clothes. As such, these procedures can be totally life-altering. In addition to enjoying far higher levels of confidence, it is not uncommon for patients to experience noticeable increases in both their social and professional marketability as well. Eliminating the social fears associated with hyperhidrosis often makes patients more positive and proactive all-around.
These procedures are also both convenient and easy. Using BOTOX® for hyperhidrosis will not require you to take any time off of work. That’s because there’s no downtime and no special requirements for aftercare. Moreover, most BOTOX® injections take very little time to complete. As soon as the necessary number of injections have been made, patients are immediately free to resume their regular schedules.
