Excessive Sweating And How To Treat It

Are you interested in having younger and smooth skin, perhaps you have heard of how Botox is useful in the treatment of skin disorders. Are you also aware of the fact that certified cosmetics surgeons can apply Botox in the treatment of excessive perspiration?

Excessive sweating is also known as hyperhidrosis, and it can lower your self-esteem and hinder the performance of some routine daily activities. The most common sites of seating include the sole of the feet, the underarms and the palm of the hands. Imagine sweating on a regular basis as though you were engaged in a vigorous exercise. This excessive seating can adversely affect your personal and professional life. It lowers your self-image by making you conspicuous.

To treat excessive perspiration, Botox is injected in the same way as it is done for treating facial wrinkles. It works by blocking acetylcholine, which is a chemical that is carried by the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. The sweat glands are thus prevented from producing sweat by blocking the signals. But you will still excrete sweat in other parts of your body, but not in areas that have been treated for hyperhidrosis.

This mode of treatment is entirely safe. Thus, the Food and Drug Administration endorsed Botox for the treatment of hyperhidrosis since 2004.

What You Should Expect From A Botox TreatmentFirst, you should undergo an iodine test, which is meant to spot the area of the underarm that produces sweat. To do this, iodine solution and starch are used to coat the underarm. At the point when you start sweating, the powder will be back in any part of your body where you are sweating. Your cosmetics surgeon will then administer Botox to specific areas of the underarms. This process requires about 15 minutes.

Each treatment varies, for patients who have undergone Botox treatment, but there is a drastic reduction of hyperhidrosis or complete disappearance of the problems after four months and even longer in some cases. Studies have proven that have proven that Botox is handy in the treatment of excessive sweating and those who have applied it, can attest to this fact that it helped them to reduce perspiration by 5o% at most.

However, you should remember that Botox cannot cure excessive sweating. It can only hinder it, for some time. Then your surgeon can repeat the treatment.
