Excessive Sweating of Hands and Underarms
Is excessive underarm sweating interfering with daily activities? Are you afraid to raise your arms in normal situations? Do you hesitate to buy new clothes because they might be ruined by underarm sweat? Do you worry someone will notice your sweat stains?
When excessive underarm sweating gets in the way of your daily activities and antiperspirants haven’t worked, you may be a candidate for BOTOX® treatment.
About 1.3 million Americans have a medical condition named severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis better known to you as excessive underarm sweating.
Excessive underarm sweating is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body’s temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements for cooling.
As you probably know, people with the condition do a lot to cope:
- Change clothes frequently
- Put absorbent materials under clothing
- Avoid certain fabrics and styles of clothes
- Seek medical attention and treatment
While people with excessive underarm sweating may choose many different antiperspirants, in many instances those products fail to stop the sweating.
Clothes can be a real issue, because the wrong choice can reveal your excessive underarm sweating condition rather than hide it. Your wardrobe can be very limited. And you may have to purchase new clothing frequently, an added strain on your budget on top of your purchases of extra-strength antisweating products.
BOTOX has been proven to be very effective against hyperhidrosis and is FDA approved for this purpose. Typically, 50 units per underarm or hand is needed for about a 6 month effect. The second treatment will usually last between 9 and 12 months.
Discomfort is minimal for these injections. Dr. Weiner has perfected a technique for the hand injections which require no nerve blocks, and very little of the injection is felt.
