If you experience excessive sweating on your underarms or palms of your hands, then you are well aware of the discomfort the condition can cause. Medically known as hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating can create embarrassment and make everyday life inconvenient. Many people who suffer from hyperhidrosis need to wear additional clothing to cover their underarms and mask the sweating that occurs on an hourly basis, causing discomfort both physically and emotionally.
When your body infringes on your ability to be comfortable on a daily basis, then it’s time to find a solution that can improve your quality of life. BOTOX is FDA-approved to treat excessive sweating, and with the No Sweat Special at Dr. Clayman’s Plastic Surgery Center and Miracle Spa, you don’t need to hurt your budget to get the treatment you need.
Although surgical options are available to treat hyperhidrosis, many of the procedures are invasive and involve significant downtime. BOTOX is gentle and allows you to go about your daily routine while you wait for your results to take effect. With a scheduled consultation, Dr. Clayman can determine whether BOTOX treatment for excessive underarm sweat is right for you.
What Causes Hyperhidrosis?
Sweating is a natural bodily function that works to control your body temperature, but excessive sweating in individuals occurs on almost any occasion and for no apparent reason. Usually, your body will shut off any signals for sweating when there is no need for the process to occur, but when an individual suffers from hyperhidrosis, these signals never happen, and the body continues to produce sweat unnecessarily.
For those with hyperhidrosis, sweating can occur while watching TV, having a conversation or sitting in a temperature-controlled climate. Although sweating poses no medical threat, it can make you feel self-conscious about your body and your personal hygiene. Doctors are not always sure why hyperhidrosis occurs in certain individuals, but other times, there is a medical condition behind your excessive sweating that needs to be addressed before any other treatment can take place.
Sweat Less with the No Sweat Special
If you are considering BOTOX as a treatment option for your excessive underarm sweat, we recommend you receive a physical examination that ensures you have no underlying medical conditions contributing to your current state. Afterwards, Dr. Clayman can perform an assessment to gain a better idea of how sweating is affecting your everyday life.
What Happens to the Sweat?
BOTOX is a neurotoxin that typically relaxes contracting muscles by blocking the nerves that induce an unwarranted movement. When treating hyperhidrosis, BOTOX blocks the nerves that communicate with your sweat glands to prevent them from producing too much perspiration. The sweat doesn’t redirect to any other part of the body or get backed up within your sweat glands; it just stops being produced.
For BOTOX to be completely effective for sweating, you will need to receive treatment approximately every six months; the particular length of time that BOTOX lasts will depend on your individual case, as many individuals get long-lasting relief from each treatment. Dr. Clayman will schedule follow-up appointments with you once the injections start to wear off.
Dr. Clayman will administer injections in the underarm or palm, which should allow you to experience a reduction in sweat in as little as two weeks, which is when you should be ready for secondary treatment.
BOTOX is capable of changing the way you live your life. No longer will you feel self-conscious about your body; instead, you will feel a renewed sense of freedom.
