Thousands of years ago, the human body evolved the ability to sweat. When you sweat, your body naturally cools itself and releases toxins through your skin. This is great, when your body’s sweat system doesn’t overdo it. Unfortunately, not all people have a sweat glands that work the way that they should.
For people who have a condition called hyperhidrosis, sweating is a nightmare. Hyperhidrosis is characterized by excessive sweating that can lead to dehydration, stained clothing, and even body odor. If this sounds like an issue you may have, the Kaplan Center’s Botox treatment could be the cure you need.
What Is Botox?
Botox is a specially extracted form of botulinum that relaxes muscles and has been known as an effective treatment for wrinkles and fine lines for decades. Most people know it as a very safe way to get rid of fine lines, with effects that last roughly six months.
In recent years, the FDA has approved Botox for use as a treatment for excessive sweating. When injected into key points in your body, the Botox will work as a way to reduce sweating significantly—at times, even preventing it altogether.
Should I Use Botox to Control My Sweating?
When it comes to treating excessive sweating, not many options actually exist outside of Botox. Some forms of prescription deodorants could potentially help, but so far, Botox has proven to be the most effective way to handle sweating.
It’s worth pointing out that Botox is a very safe procedure that is known for having minimal risk of side effects. As one would expect with Botox treatments, using Botox to stop sweating also is minimally time-taking and requires no resting period. Patients who are looking for a quick and effective fix to their hyperhidrosis would be wise to choose Botox.
