What is Hyperhidrosis and How Can a Botox Clinic Help?

We all sweat. It’s not flattering, but it is necessary. It’s your body telling you, “You’re hot, and you need to cool off.” Sweating is our body’s way of reducing high temperatures so that we don’t overheat and keel over.

Hyperhidrosis treatment, on the other hand, is necessary when the brain overreacts to these bodily impulses, and bombards the body with orders to sweat, sweat, and sweat some more. Simply put, this condition is characterized by excessive sweating of the face, palms, armpits, and feet—anywhere you have pores. It’s a condition that 3% of the population have to deal with, and wish for relief from.

Unfortunately, it cannot be treated with regular or even extra-strength antiperspirant alone, and leaves many people feeling insecure and uncomfortable on a day-to-day basis. For many, there is nothing more embarrassing than sitting in a room, and feeling as though other people are staring at you because you are sweating uncontrollably.

While some hyperhidrosis treatments are costly and dangerous—such as endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy, which can cause tissue damage—there is a surprisingly simple and safe way to relieve the symptoms of hyperhidrosis:

While you may think of it as something that’s only used to reduce the look of wrinkles, Botox can actually effectively treat the symptoms of hyperhidrosis. When injected into the treatment area, it interrupts messages from the brain to the sweat glands. This is based on the same principle applied when being used cosmetically to reduce wrinkles, wherein it stops the brain’s signals to the muscles, reducing cause skin contractions and resulting in a smooth, wrinkle-free look.

When used as a Hyperhidrosis treatment, Botox temporarily stops the eccrine gland from receiving the overactive chemical signals sent from the brain and tightens the surrounding muscle to reduce sweating. This treatment can be found at a Botox clinic and is a quick, painless way to put an end to your sweating woes. During your appointment, the problem area is identified, and within minutes the treatment is prepared and administered into the affected area—immediately going into action to help your body fight against the causes of excessive sweating.

You may think that because it comes from a Botox clinic, this procedure must be incredibly high-maintenance; luckily for you, this is not the case. While results are quick, they are also long-term. One treatment is all you need for up to 7 to 12 months of sweat-free bliss! That means potentially a full year of putting the fear of sweaty handshakes or hugs—not to mention embarrassing odours—out of your head, leaving you worry-free and confident all throughout your day.
