Treat Your Excessive Sweating this Summer with Botox

Blog Home

Excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, can be a frustrating and embarrassing problem. If you sweat in situations where it’s not appropriate for your level of activity (as in, when you’re not exercising or outside on a hot day), you may be experiencing excessive sweating. Fortunately, there are treatments available for excessive sweating to help you feel more confident and worry less about visible sweating. Here is what to know about Botox for excessive sweating and how our team can help at Grace + Grey Med Spa.

What Causes Excessive Sweating?

Excessive sweating is typically the result of overactive sweat glands. Normally, sweat glands receive an appropriate signal from the brain to become active and begin producing sweat. Once sweat is no longer needed, the glands become inactive. If you have excessive sweating, these sweat glands are likely “stuck” in an active state where they consistently produce sweat even when it’s not needed.

Excessive sweating can be caused by an underlying medical condition or medication (called secondary hyperhidrosis). When there is no underlying medical cause, it’s called primary hyperhidrosis.

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable medication that is most popular as a cosmetic treatment. However, it also has a variety of medical benefits, including treating excessive sweating. Botox is made with an active ingredient called botulinum toxin type A which is incredibly effective at blocking nerve signals when injected into areas of the face or body. This makes it a very versatile treatment option for excessive sweating and many other medical conditions.

How Does Botox Treat Excessive Sweating?

Botox works by blocking nerve signals from the brain. In the case of excessive sweating, Botox can block faulty nerve signals that cause sweat glands to overproduce. This can help manage sweat production, bringing it to a more appropriate level. It does not block sweating completely – you will still sweat but in a more normal amount. In this way, Botox can help manage excessive sweating and help you feel more confident in situations where you might be prone to excessive sweating.

What Areas Can Botox Treat for Excessive Sweating?

Botox can treat the underarms, palms, and feet, which are areas most often affected by excessive sweating. Unlike other excessive sweating treatments that only treat the underarms, Botox is a much more versatile option that can be tailored to your needs.
