Really? Do I have to live with sweaty armpits?
Why do I sweat more than others?! Why do I have “sweat stains” under my arms even when I am not working out? Why isn’t deodorant working? If these questions have entered your mind, you may be suffering from Hyperhidrosis - a medical condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating. This type of perspiration is an excess of that required to regulate body temperature. It happens even if the person is not engaging tasks that require muscular effort, and it doesn't depend on exposure to heat! Not fair at all.
Hyperhidrosis commonly effects the axilla (underarm area) of both men and women of all ethnicities. Excessive axillary moisture commonly produces a large wet ring around the entire underarm crease, which is visible even when a person doesn’t raise their arms. That mark you see on your clothing is from repetitive moisture rings and can often ruin your favorite shirt. Not to mention the embarrassment that comes along with Hyperhidrosis.
A first date, an important business meeting, or simply lunch with friends doesn’t have to be a scenario of worry or embarrassment. BOTOX® can solve the problem!! Yes, you heard right – the very popular aesthetic treatment known to cure lines and wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes can also be used to weaken or completely stop excessive perspiration by locally blocking the nerve signals responsible for sweating. Patients experience up to a 90% reduction in axillary perspiration. Retreatment is typically needed in four to six months. Over time, however, patients can go longer between treatments.
Axillary hyperhidrosis treatments with BOTOX® take about 20 minutes, there is not much discomfort and this treatment can offer a reliable solution for excessive sweating. Yea, there really is a solution out there!
