Over four million Americans suffer from excessive sweating a condition called hyperhidrosis which is caused by overstimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. If you suffer from excessive sweating of underarms, palms of hands, feet or head and neck areas, it can be embarrassing, stain your clothing and affect your confidence level, self-esteem and interfere with your job or social life. Chronic sweating of hands and feet may cause maceration of the skin with fungal or bacterial infections, cracking of skin and an adverse odor.
The good news is that we now offer a quick and easy treatment using BOTOX for men and women. Although Botox is typically utilized in wrinkle treatments, it has been proven to effectively treat over-active sweating! This occurs because Botox prevents the release of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine at the presynaptic nerve ending and if Acetylcholine is not released the sweat glands will not be stimulated and will not secrete bodily salts and water, which we refer to as sweat.
