Hyperhydrosis - Perspiration Care
Do you suffer with excessive sweating? This is a common condition that can often cause embarrassment and distress for the sufferer.
Sweating is necessary to control body temperature during times of exercise and in warm or hot surroundings, and it is a normal response to a rise in temperature or even anxiety. However in some people this system is revved-up and works at a very high level, causing sweating to occur at inappropriate times, far in excess of the amount necessary to maintain normal body temperature.
It can occur in many different areas of the body, and the condition is known as Hyperhidrosis, which means 'excessive sweating'.
Research demonstrates that treating excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, feet, head and face, and other relatively small body areas with Botulinum Toxin is safe and effective. When used to treat the underarm area Botox has been shown to result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating.
Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months but some studies have found it can last as long as 14 months which results in meaningful, long-lasting improvements in a patient’s symptoms, daily functioning, and quality of life.
