Botox® Treatment For Hyperhidrosis
We most commonly think of Botox® as a treatment for wrinkles, but did you know that it can also help people suffering from the embarrassing effects of hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating? In fact, Botox® is an FDA approved hyperhidrosis treatment! Botox® injections can help greatly with this potentially embarrassing problem and are covered by many insurance plans.
Botox® For Underarm Sweating
Botox® injections are an effective nonsurgical method of treating excessive armpit sweating. When injected by a professional into the armpits, it blocks the sympathetic nerve signals that stimulate excessive sweating. Botox® treatment is quick, performed in the office, and doesn’t even require the use of an anesthetic!
Botox® For Sweating Feet
Excessively sweaty feet, or plantar hyperhidrosis, often accompany palm sweating. Unfortunately, too much sweat on the feet can cause other health problems like fungal infection and foot odor, not to mention make it difficult to wear certain types of footwear. Neuromodulator injections in the feet can reduce the amount of sweating you experience, prevent fungal foot infections, and improve your overall quality of life.
Botox® For Sweating Hands
Palmar hyperhidrosis, or sweaty palms, is the most prevalent type of excessive sweating. Many patients start experiencing the symptoms of palmar hyperhidrosis when they are young, with sweat sometimes dripping down their hands. We recognize that this condition can be embarrassing. Call today to discuss treatment with Botox® injections.
