Almost 3% of people are forced to avoid handshakes, public speaking, and even romantic dates due to hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating! And we want to stress the word ‘excessive’ as the process of sweating is natural and very useful for protecting the organism from overheat.
The excessive sweating can easily shatter our self-confidence, interfere the communication with other people, career, or private life. However, in many cases, it may be not pathology, but just a peculiarity of the nervous system. If this is not a consequence of a serious infectious, endocrine, or other decease, then injections of Botox for sweating can easily solve the problem.
How do I know I need to treat hyperhidrosis?
Do not forget that sweating is just a regular function, which is responsible for cooling the organism. If the armpits sweating and the smell bother you, first, ask yourself a question whether it can be caused by some natural reasons:
• Severe stress
• Physical stress
• Unusual heat
• Spicy food
But if increased sweating has become an everyday problem for you, you should think about diagnosing hyperhidrosis in a medical center.
The means to treat excessive sweating are quite diverse – this can be antiperspirants, formalin solutions, physiotherapy, etc. There are even special remedies to improve feet sweating:
• moisture-absorbing insoles
• astringent and deodorizing preparations
• creams and ointments
However, all these means either fight only with the consequences of hyperhidrosis or require constant procedures. The simplest and most effective treatment is to inject botulinum toxin, for example, the product of Allergan, Botox.
Before starting treatment, we recommend that you undergo a medical examination to rule out such causes of sweating as fever, hypertension, lymphadenopathy, glycemia, and other diseases.
If excessive sweating is caused by stress or any other ‘nerve’ reason, Botox will solve it at once. The process of sweating, like any other process in our organism, is controlled by the brain, which sends corresponding signals to the receptors, in this case, the sweat glands.
The botulinum toxin blocks the nerve endings and prevents them from receiving any signal. No signal, no sweating. The mechanism is simple but extremely effective.
The procedure is quite simple and fast. It will not take more than one hour by any means. A very thin needle, quickly and almost painlessly, containing type A botulinum toxin, will inject Botox for armpits sweating, feet, or any other problem zone.
We can claim even that Botox fights excessive sweating even better than wrinkles. Functions of the sweat glands are restored much slower than muscle mobility, so Botox injection completely blocks the work of sweat glands starting with the 1st-4th day.
This is the same “sweating injection” that solves the problem without dangerous and traumatic surgery and has a minimum of side effects.
Every specialized center will have a different price for the procedure. There are a lot of factors that influence the final price: clinic’s prestige, reputation and experience of the doctor, amount of the needed injections, and price for the remedy. The rough cost is around $1000.
Please, be aware that just certified specialists are allowed to conduct the procedure and even order Botox. The ordinary patients and doctors without a certificate cannot purchase the drug under any condition.
Of course, we would like to solve the problem of sweating armpits and palms once and for all, but this is impossible. At least, not yet. However, during the action of Botox, self-confidence returns to many patients, as they cease to be constantly embarrassed and nervous.
How long does Botox last? After the injection, hyperhidrosis and the smell of sweat will no longer bother you in the next 6-8 months. After that, the action of the remedy will gradually weaken, and the nerve endings will renew their regular function. In order to preserve the effect, the following re-injections will be required.
Contraindications are similar to any other Botox procedures: myasthenia gravis, inflammation at the injection site, hemophilia, hypersensitivity to the drug, pregnancy, lactation, etc.
Excessive sweating is not a sentence. There is a way to return self-confidence and live a full life without worrying about sweaty hands and unpleasant smell.
