About Excessive Sweating

Some people struggle with excessive sweating, even when not exposed to heat or strenuous workouts. If you suffer from excessive sweating, you may experience immense self-consciousness and social anxiety during social and professional events. After all, no one wants to attend a work meeting with sweat stains under the arms. Our medical providers trace the root cause of your excessive sweating and curate personalized treatment plans consisting of Botox or Dysport injections, which can reduce excessive sweating within a few days.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition wherein you sweat profusely, even without exposure to heat or strenuous workouts. In normal conditions, sweating is your body’s response to increased temperatures because of external heat or strenuous workouts. When you’re overheated, your body emits sweat to reduce your body temperature. But hyperhidrosis is a condition wherein your sweat glands go on overdrive and produce sweat even when there are no external stimuli, such as heat or physical exercises.

Individuals with hyperhidrosis experience significant self-consciousness and social anxiety. You may sweat so much that you soak through your clothes and start dripping from your hands. This type of excess sweating disrupts your daily activities, causes emotional distress, and may lead to night sweats without any reason. If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, you can try using prescription-strength antiperspirants. But if that doesn’t work, you should consider Botox and Dysport injections at a reliable medical spa.

Botox/ Dysport for Hyperhidrosis

Botox and Dysport belong to a category of cosmetic injections known as neuromodulators, i.e., cosmetic injections made of the botulinum toxin protein. When injected into targeted areas, botulinum toxin blocks the transmission of signals from nerve endings, disrupting communications between nerve endings and targeted muscles. Botox and Dysport are utilized for numerous medical and cosmetic purposes and can address your hyperhidrosis.

When injected into targeted areas under the arms, Botox and Dysport can block communications between nerve endings and your sweat glands. Since your nerve endings must send the sweating signals to your sweat glands, cutting that source of communication prevents excess sweating. You might start noticing mild improvements after a few days, with continued improvements for 2 weeks, so you will no longer suffer from excess sweating. The results usually last for 3 to 4 weeks.
