Are Treatments Available for Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis – also more commonly known as excessive sweating – is a medical condition that happens when overactive sweat glands continue to produce sweat, even when the body is at rest or cold. 

No one knows what causes hyperhidrosis, but one thing is for certain: Excessive sweating can make it difficult to live a normal life. People who suffer from excessive sweating may often need to change their clothing, refrain from lifting their arms, or even cancel plans to avoid embarrassment.

With that in mind, it’s no wonder many people wonder: Are treatments available for hyperhidrosis?


Botox Treatments for Excessive Sweating

One of the most surprising – and effective! – treatment for excessive sweating happens to be Botox injections!

If you know Botox as an anti-aging injection, you’re right; but it also helps stop excessive sweating on areas like the underarms, hands, and even feet. This discovery was made during clinical trials for wrinkle treatments, as researchers noted that participants who had excessive sweating issues started noticing significant sweat reduction.

It only takes a single Botox injection where hyperhidrosis is experienced the most to see results!
