Botox: The Solution for Excessive Sweating

Posted on October 6, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Everyone sweats. For the 7 million Americans suffering from hyperhidrosis, sweating can be such an unpleasant experience that it actually reduces their quality of life. Hyperhidrosis is a term used to describe a medical disorder in which the body perspires at an abnormally high rate, even if there are no physiological or mental triggers to elicit such response.

Deodorants and antiperspirants are the most common ways to reduce the odor and wetness associated with sweating, but these two over-the-counter products have very limited success when dealing with excessive underarm sweating. The active ingredient in antiperspirants is aluminum, but the concentration of the chemical in most commercial antiperspirants is simply not strong enough to handle hyperhidrosis.

Luckily, there is an affordable medical grade treatment, such as Botox, that can offer relief to patients suffering from excessive sweating. Although Botox is typically lauded for its wrinkle-fighting abilities, it is also a very effective treatment for hyperhidrosis. In fact, in clinical trials, Botox was shown to reduce sweating up to 80 percent for up to six months. Botox is so effective because it works by blocking the chemical signals that activate sweat glands, which prevents sweating in the first place.
