Patients who have been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis know how excessive sweating can impact their daily lives. Hyperhidrosis commonly occurs in patients under the arms, causing them to sweat even when they are not hot or participating in exercise. For many patients who have this condition, traditional antiperspirants available over-the-counter often fail to work. Some may also find prescription-strength alternatives fail to provide results as well. In situations such as this, Dr. Jeffrey J. Roth of Las Vegas, NV may recommend the use of Botox injections to resolve the issue.
What problems are associated with hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis can cause embarrassment for many individuals. It can result in them staining clothes, causing many patients to reconsider the colors they wear for work and social activities. Some people also find that along with the excess sweat, they also experience a foul odor that cannot be controlled with deodorants. At this point, it is wise for patients to seek the help of a doctor to find a solution. In many cases, it might be Botox injections.
What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable medication that is used in many areas of medicine to address a wide range of issues. This injectable treatment is commonly thought of for cosmetic use. It is often injected into muscles of the face to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, eliminating the early signs of aging. However, it can also be used as an injectable medication in the underarms to reduce sweating and improve a patient’s confidence and self-esteem in social settings.
Botox can be injected into the underarms to alleviate excessive sweating and help patients feel more confident in their day-to-day activities. Each treatment will often last up to six months before reinjection is needed to maintain the results.
