It’s summertime and although you may be excited about wearing your favourite dress or t-shirt you might also be nervous about how much you may be sweating during this hot season.
Have you ever felt awkward and uncomfortable about your sweat? Do you feel like you might sweat a lot more than the average person? This is known as hyperhidrosis. Whether it’s trying to avoid clammy handshakes or overly sweaty armpits, uncontrollable sweat can make you feel like it’s controlling your life. However, there is an unusual solution. Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A).
New research has revealed that 5% of the population suffers from hyperhidrosis which means that there are 365 million other people just like you who excessively sweat. Hyperhidrosis can completely shatter your confidence but there are many different causes. Some of the causes can be from systemic diseases, neurologic endocrine or infectious which explains hyperhidrosis in perfectly healthy people. other causes could be triggered by heat, emotion or even stress.
Hyperhidrosis can affect anyone at any age as it’s not necessarily something that you’re born with. There are a couple of treatments which can be tried before choosing Botox but often they only alleviate a small amount of the sweating and usually mainly targets the odour.
The Botox treatment involves small doses of Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A ) into the top layer of skin which blocks the nerves that supply the eccrine gland. This prevents the gland from producing sweat.
The treatment basically cuts out and blocks the receptors from the gland to the brain. The treatment normally lasts around 30 minutes and there is very little discomfort during the process. Another benefit of the treatment is that there is virtually no recovery time and you will start to see improvements within 4 weeks of the treatment.
Botox is not a permanent treatment as it usually only lasts from 4 months to a year depending on how well your body takes the treatment. There are permanent treatments out there however they do have the risk of creating long-term or even permanent damage. The treatment of Botox for hyperhidrosis is safe as eventually, it wears off and another course of treatments are administered.
