For most people, Botox is considered a great way to treat fine lines and wrinkles. But what many do not know is that it provides a solution to an uncomfortable and often embarrassing condition called hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis means excessive, abnormal sweating that isn’t related to heat or physical exertion; it can even soak through your clothes and also make your hands drip with sweat. It usually occurs on both sides of your body and can affect other areas on the body such as your hands, feet, face, underarms, or under your breasts. There is no known cause of this occurrence but thanks to scientific research and proven trials we now know how to help prevent it!

So often Botox is used when many other treatments have failed. This natural, purified protein is able to temporarily block the body from secreting a chemical that turns the body’s sweat glands on and off. When Botox is injected, it essentially turns off the sweating function at the site of the injection. The results can be seen anywhere from 2-14 post injections.

According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society research has proven that Botox is a safe and effective way to treat the condition. It results in an 82 to 87 percent decrease in sweating, and the effects of the injections can last from four months to a year and in some cases, patients have found them to last as long as 14 months.
