What Causes Excessive Sweating?
Excessive sweating is primarily a symptom of overactive sweat glands which, in turn, causes the body to perspire more than it needs to. This is known as hyperhidrosis, and it’s triggered by nerves overloading the body with signals to distribute the sweat from underarms, the back, feet, the forehead, and the legs. The primary outcome is sheer embarrassment and discomfort, which can lead to social isolation, depression, and other mental health issues if left unaddressed.
How BOTOX® Can Help
The key to making hyperhidrosis a thing of the past is to administer specialized compound injections beneath the surface of the skin in the affected area. Our BOTOX® behave much like a signal jammer, slowing the sweat glands down and bringing the transmission of nerve messages to perspire down to a more acceptable level. This is a fast, effective, perfectly safe, and dependable means of saying goodbye to excess sweat and hello to renewed confidence!
