Botox for Hyperhidrosis


Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive sweating, typically in the underarms, palms, feet, or face.


The exact cause of hyperhidrosis is not fully understood, but it may be due to overactive sweat glands or a malfunction in the nervous system that controls sweating.


Treatment options for hyperhidrosis include antiperspirants, prescription medications, and Botox injections. Botox (botulinum toxin) has been found to be an effective treatment option for hyperhidrosis, particularly in the underarms. Botox works by blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which is responsible for activating sweat glands. By blocking this chemical, Botox can reduce the amount of sweat produced in the treated area.

Antiperspirants work by blocking sweat glands, while prescription medications can help regulate the nervous system’s response to sweating. Botox injections are a more invasive treatment option that work by blocking the nerves that control sweat glands, reducing the amount of sweat produced.
