Sweating is normal. Indeed, it’s necessary: Humans have to release sweat in order to manage body temperature. On the other hand, heavy sweating more commonly called in medical terminology ‘hyperhidrosis’ is a condition where human body releases excessive amount of sweat and it is considered as abnormal condition. This condition is truly very humiliating and problematic. It can really affect a person standard of living.
In certain cases, this excessive and problematic sweating is confined to one area of the body for example the underarms or maybe feet a condition known as focal hyperhidrosis. Other cases are more generalized with excessive sweating over a vast area of the body and the area affected includes underarm, scalp, hands, groin area, and feet. Before you cover yourself in heavy sweaters or move to a place with colder weather, you may try this proven treatment to deal with excessive sweating.
What is Botox and Botox treatment?
Botox is a protein made from Botulinum which the bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces. It has many benefits. It has both cosmetic and medical uses. When it comes to Botox injections, well they are used to treat a number of medical conditions. Dermatologists, estheticians and plastic surgery practitioners all around the world started usage of Botox injection as a cosmetic treatment for many problems as the groundbreaking instruments with cutting edge technology and new treatment techniques came into existence.
Botox shots are a new treatment choice for those people who are suffering from hyperhidrosis. You can be an aspirant for Botox injection if your sweating did not stop or reduce with the recommended antiperspirants. Botox injections have been sanctioned by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for those people whose armpits, hands palm, feet, face and other body parts release excessive sweat.
How do Botox injections work?
Botox injections work by clogging the nerves which are assigned the task of boosting your sweat glands. Usually, the nervous system stimulates your sweat glands when the temperature of your body goes up. The only process which on the body maintains the internal temperature and remains cool. But in those people who are suffering from hyperhidrosis, the nerves that instruct or warn the sweat glands are dormant.
When you get Botox injections straight into the area or organ of your body that usually sweats, the hyperactive nerves become paralyzed. When these nerves can’t warn and instruct your sweat glands, you don’t sweat. But, Botox injections only stop sweating in the particular area where it’s shot.
Do Botox injections really work?
Yes of course! They really do work. Botox injections have sanctioned by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of too much sweating release in armpits, hands, feet and other parts of the body. They work by clogging a substance in the body that boosts the sweat glands.
As reported by the International Hyperhidrosis Society, armpits Botox injections can decrease sweating by 82-87%. The results usually remain for 4-12 months or up to 14 months in certain circumstances. Patients with hyperhidrosis see results 2-4 days after they get Botox injections and the full results are normally seen within 2 weeks.
