Hyperhidrosis / Excessive Sweating
- Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating.
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating, a chronic medical condition. Although hyperhidrosis can be brought on by some lifestyle changes – such as weight gain or certain medications – it is not known what causes it, and it can be extremely debilitating for sufferers to live with.
Botox®️ is a muscle relaxant most commonly used for anti-wrinkle purposes, but can be extremely effective at controlling excessive sweating. Usually injected into the hands, feet, armpits or forehead of those who suffer from hyperhidrosis, most patients experience up to an 80% reduction in sweat production, as Botox®️ blocks the nerves signals to the sweat gland.
