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.
