Hyperhidrosis treatment (excessive sweating)

Botox hyperhidrosis treatment is an ideal option for people suffering from excessive sweating. Overactive sweat glands cause the disorder of Hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating is not only harmful, but it can also be socially embarrassing.

Studies show that 1-3% of the population are seeking hyperhidrosis treatment. Hyperhidrosis may either affect small areas of skin or the whole body. Over the counter, deodorants combat normal sweating but are not entirely effective. Botox for excessive sweating can target specific areas prone to sweat profusely.

What is classified as excess sweating?

Sweat is the body’s temperature control method. In hyperhidrosis, the sweat is not reducing the body’s temperature as a response to heat only. The triggers can be mild anxiety; such as occurs when giving a presentation or meeting new people.  Shaking hands is usually avoided for those who suffer palmer excessive sweating.

What causes excessive sweating?

Hyperhidrosis occurs due to a physiological reason.  The nerves supplying a particular region(s) of the the skin are hyperactive, hence the name. Hyperhidrosis treatment involves arresting the nerve signal before reaching the sweat gland(s).

The sympathetic nervous system that controls the body’s automatic processes is responsible. These nerves exist throughout the body regulating heart rate, blood flow and sweat production.

Hyperhidrosis treatment with botox

This treatment is the same as that for facial blushing. The treatment is similar to the one used for facial blushing. Therefore, this method is effective in treating facial and neck blushing. Moreover, Compensatory sweating, gustatory sweating can also be treated with botox (see botulinum toxin below)

After treatment can you have excess sweating elsewhere?

Hyperhidrosis treatment with botox blocks the nerve supplying the sweat gland. Hence, blocking overactive nerve also decreases excess sweating. However, the ETS surgery for hyperhidrosis may result in a similar complication.
