Sweating is a normal function of the body that keeps it cool. However, for more than one million Americans, excessive sweating is an embarrassing result of overactive underarm sweat glands. The technical term is severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, but no matter what you call it, it is a true medical condition that can interfere with pretty much everything you do; for some people, even prescribed anti-perspirants are ineffective.
When all other means of treating the problem don’t work, you might be surprised to learn that BOTOX® has been proven to be effective in reducing or eliminating excessive perspiration. That’s right, the same Botox that smooths facial lines has been FDA approved and used by physicians to treat overactive sweat glands since 1994!
Clinical studies have shown that 81 percent of patients who perspire profusely experience at least a 50 percent reduction in sweat production with BOTOX injections administered directly to the arm pits. It works by preventing chemical signals from reaching nerves in the sweat glands. For individuals who have run out of potential cures for excessive underarm sweating, Botox is considered a miracle solution that has only recently gained widespread attention for this application.
BOTOX treatments for excessive underarm sweating can result in a noticeable difference in as little as one month, and a single treatment can last up to six months. Most insurers cover this treatment as well. Each treatment takes only 10 to 15 minutes with roughly a dozen injections being made in the underarms to target all glands.
Imagine the lifestyle improvements you can enjoy when your excessive sweating is under control.
