Excessive sweating, also known as Hyperhidrosis, is a common problem that usually starts in adolescence or early adulthood. The most common site for hyperhidrosis is the axillae or the arm pits. For many people it causes frustrations that lead to changing clothes frequently, avoiding social gatherings, and challenges with relationships. While excessive sweating is embarrassing, many people are not aware that there is an available treatment to control the problem.
Many patients see excessive sweating as a medical condition, but it is actually treated cosmetically. Anti-Wrinkle Injections may be known to treat wrinkles, but they are also used to treat excessive sweating. As it relaxes the muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it does the same for muscles that produce sweat. It is safe and effective in treating hyperhidrosis in the armpits. Anti-Wrinkle Injections may reduce a patient’s excessive sweating for up to six months.
