Hyperhidrosis Treatment (Excessive Sweating)
Do you suffer from excessive sweating in the underarms, hands, feet, or any other area? You may have a rare medical condition known as hyperhidrosis, which can onset in adolescence or adulthood. Sweating is an incredibly important bodily function that aids in thermoregulation, or your body’s natural ability to regulate its own temperature. Hyperhidrosis inhibits your body’s ability to limit its sweating, resulting in producing more sweat than is necessary. This can lead to social anxiety and nervousness, skin irritation and breakouts, and even difficulty performing manual tasks, especially for those who sweat from their hands. Fortunately, we offer BOTOX® hyperhidrosis treatment, which is covered under many health insurance plans.*
There are many different options for hyperhidrosis treatment, including surgeries to remove the sweat glands, special antiperspirants, and medications. However, since 2004, BOTOX® has been proven as not only one of the safest and most effective hyperhidrosis treatments, but also as one that is both quick and relatively non-invasive and with only slight discomfort in typical cases. And because results can typically last between 7 and 12 months, you can live worry-free with fewer treatments than many other options. We can perform injections into the hands, feet, and underarms to address hyperhidrosis.*
After the treatment area is identified and, if necessary, anaesthetized, the BOTOX® treatment is prepared and injected just beneath the skin. Once under the skin, it generally works as a sort of signal jammer, blocking the chemical transmitters in your body that tell the eccrine glands in that area to produce sweat. Without the message from your body telling your glands to sweat, your perspiration levels may return to normal almost immediately.*
And just as easily as that, for the next 7 to 12 months you can possibly say goodbye to excessive sweat! No more anxiety, no more embarrassment, no more worries about shaking hands or using sharp tools or machinery. With Ottawa Skin Clinic’s BOTOX® hyperhidrosis treatment, you can take it easy, letting go of the burden of excessive perspiration and returning to what’s really important.
