Hyperhidrosis (also known as excessive sweating) is a common condition affecting both males and females, young and old. It is thought to be a result of over-active sympathetic nervous system. It is often most evident under the arms and can cause embarrassment and anxiety for affected individuals. Hyperhidrosis is known to have a genetic predisposition and has been seen in almost every ethnic group.
Often, individuals affected by hyperhidrosis are unaware of treatment options and often adjust their lifestyle to deal with this problem. The condition can be disabling professionally as well as socially, however, Botox injections can effectively treat hyperhidrosis. Injecting Botox in the armpit can temporarily block neurotransmitters that stimulate the production of sweat leading to a marked decrease in sweating from the area.
Botox injections for hyperhidrosis are repeated at 4-6 month intervals, during which time sweating is significantly reduced. The use of botox for the treatment of hyperhidrosis has recieved FDA approval and has grown in popularity in the United States over the past few years.
