What is Excessive Sweating?

Excessive sweating is sometimes known as hyperhidrosis. Although everybody sweats, people who have excessive sweating experience disruptions in their daily life because of it. They may sweat through clothing even in situations where sweating is not normal or appropriate. While exercising or in hot environments, they may experience sweating beyond normal levels. In many cases, antiperspirant is not enough to keep sweat under control.

What Causes Excessive Sweating?

It’s thought that excessive sweating is caused by overactivity in the sweat glands. Normally, sweat glands can be turned on and off by the brain. In people with excessive sweating, these glands remain in the “on” position and continue to produce sweat even when it’s not needed. There can be a variety of factors underlying excessive sweating, but the most common is genetics. People with excessive sweating can experience it in specific places including the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet.

What are My Treatment Options for Excessive Sweating?

Botox® is one of the most effective treatment options for hyperhidrosis. Botox works by blocking nerve signals and reducing glandular activity – a process called neuromodulation. With regular injections, Botox can reduce sweating in the affected areas. This treatment is not damaging to your body since it affects only a small percentage of the body’s millions of sweat glands. Most patients achieve excellent results from Botox and can live a more comfortable, worry-free life without excessive sweating. Read our blog for more details on treating excessive sweat with Botox.

How Can I Maintain My Results from Excessive Sweating Treatment?

Botox treatment must be repeated every 3-4 months to maintain results. Our team can also recommend prescription-grade products to pair with your hyperhidrosis treatment. During your consultation, our team will provide a complete treatment schedule, so you know what to expect from treatment.
