Do you worry that you will perspire through your shirt during the day?

Do you worry that you will perspire through your shirt during the day? Are you afraid to shake hands because your palms are often sweaty? Have you altered your lifestyle to avoid these embarrassing situations? If so, please know that you are not alone. It is estimated that 2-3% of Americans suffer from a condition known as hyperhidrosis or excessive, involuntary sweating. Patients with hyperhidrosis attest that the condition impacts all aspects of their lives, limiting their social and professional interactions and compromising their quality of life.

Hyperhidrosis typically affects the underarms, the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. While many perceive this condition to be a result of anxiety or nervousness, hyperhidrosis is actually the result of the over activity of the sympathetic nervous system, which can cause you to sweat spontaneously, even in comfortable, non-threatening settings.

Fortunately, with recent advances in medicine and FDA approval, hyperhidrosis can now be effectively managed with injections of a neurotoxin, such as Botox®. Botox®, which is more commonly known for its anti-aging properties in the treatment of facial wrinkles, can now offer relief for patients who suffer from hSyperhidrosis. Through a series of injections, Botox® is inserted directly into the subdermal layer of skin which temporarily blocks neurotransmitters that stimulate sweat production. These injections can be placed in the underarm area, the palms of hands and the soles of feet with minimal discomfort. A decrease in sweating is noted a few days after the injections and can last up to 6 months. At that time, a repeat treatment is necessary to maintain results. The cost of the Botox® treatment will vary from one patient to another depending on the number of treatment areas and the size of the affected area.

Uncontrollable sweating is extremely embarrassing. Stop living with the problem and start treating it. Just one Botox treatment can control this condition and improve your quality of life.
