Stop Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Sweating is a natural phenomenon necessary for the regulation of body temperature. For 1% of the population their system is overactive causing the over-production of sweat. This can have a devastating effect on the social life of those affected.
What triggers Hyperhidrosis?
Though commonly found in adults, Hyperhidrosis (HH) can be a hereditary condition that appears in adolescence and persists for life. Botox® Therapeutic acts to block the transmission of nerve impulses that trigger Hyperhidrosis.
Excessive sweating occurs primarily in the forehead, scalp, underarms, and hands and feet..
Hyperhidrosis does not pose a health threat. Results typically last 4-18 months, and treatment is generally covered by extended health plans.
Physician-administered injections of Botox® Therapeutic have proven highly effective in the treatment of Hyperhidrosis.
Multiple injections are required since the effects of Botox are temporary, and each injection affects an approximate area of 1 cm in diameter.
Though Hyperhidrosis is not life threatening, most treatments are performed to improve quality of life.
