Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating and it affects approximately 3% of the population. How much a person sweats depends on the individual, but excessive perspiration is typically defined as a condition that affects daily life. If you have to change clothes throughout the day because of sweat stains, have difficulty grasping a pen, or cannot hold onto a steering wheel tightly, then you probably suffer from hyperhidrosis.

How Does Botox Help Hyperhidrosis?

Many people do not think about getting treated for hyperhidrosis since they may be used to it. Others may think that there is nothing they can do to treat it. There are some very effective solutions ranging from home remedies to surgery. However, Botox for sweating is one of the best treatment options for hyperhidrosis. Surprisingly, the treatment best known for its cosmetic benefits is also an excellent solution to excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, and even feet. Recognizing the capability of Botox in treating hyperhidrosis patients, MI Skin & Dermatology includes this service at their practice.

Just as it numbs wrinkles, Botox has a similar effect on sweat glands. Botox for sweating prevents the release of a chemical that stimulates perspiration. Typically, three treatments are needed for optimal effectiveness, which can last up to a year. The costs saved in replacing or cleaning clothes more than covers the expense of Botox injections. Another benefit is its convenience. A patient only needs a few treatments and can be perspiration-free for the rest of the year.
