Botox® for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
Botox® can also be used as an excessive sweating treatment (hyperhidrosis) in the armpit area. It can be injected into sweat glands to block the nerve impulses that cause your body to sweat without affecting other nerve functions.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Sweating is completely normal and necessary for the body to reduce heat. Severe, or excessive sweating is known as hyperhidrosis. It is caused by overactivity in the sweat glands which produces sweat in greater amounts than the body actually needs. Both men and women can be affected.
