Botox for Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis is a condition of involuntary excessive sweating which typically can involve the armpits, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, the groin, and the face. It is particularly discomforting to have excessive sweating of the armpits and the palms because of social interactions. Botox Hyperhidrosis is an effective treatment for this condition.
How Botox for Hyperhidrosis Works
In order to assess the appropriate dosage of Botox to treat hyperhidrosis, a Minor’s starch iodine test is applied to the affected area (i.e. underarms, palms etc.). After the test is applied, the area of sweating is visible, as well as the severity of the sweating, which guides the dosage required. Usually, men require higher doses than women.
Once the Botox Hyperhidrosis treatment is applied directly into the sweat glands, it helps to temporarily inhibit nerve impulses that cause excessive sweating in the body.
