Hyperhidrosis, also referred to as excessive sweating, is a condition that gives many patients embarrassment. Individuals who find themselves sweating constantly, regardless of body temp, may struggle with wearing certain clothing colors or feeling calm and confident in social situations. If you are tired of dealing with excessive sweating and want to find a solution, it might be time to connect with Dr. Andrew Dorizas and his team at Kendall Dermatology in Miami, Florida!
What is hyperhidrosis?
Excessive sweating is essentially overactive sweat glands. Patients who have this condition may find themselves wet just minutes after changing into their clothes for the day. Many patients who deal with this condition find themselves wearing darker clothing to disguise their sweating, and may avoid certain types of fabrics that hold in moisture. Many patients with this condition are easily embarrassed by it, but might not be aware that there are options for treatment outside of clinical strength anti-perspirants.
How are Botox injections used for hyperhidrosis?
Botox is a medication that has been used for decades for a wide range of concerns. Most patients associate Botox as an anti-aging solution for the face. However, it has been used in medicine for the treatment of excessive sweating. By injecting Botox into the underarms, patients will notice a significant reduction in the amount of sweat they deal with on a daily basis. It can restore a patient’s confidence and improve the problem on a more temporary basis.
How often do Botox injections last for hyperhidrosis?
Many patients who use Botox injections for managing their excessive sweating will find that it provides relief for several months before reinjection is needed. Patients can schedule regular visits with our team at Kendall Dermatology to maintain their control over hyperhidrosis without the need for surgical interventions or more aggressive treatments. Botox, along with anti-perspirants, can significantly improve this concern.
