How Can Botox Help Me with Excessive Sweating?

 In

Botox can be very effective for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in the right patient. Your doctor just needs to make sure the sweating is not due to another serious medical condition (ie., hyperthyroidism) first before planning treatment.

There is a surgical option for treating hyperhidrosis as well and involves undergoing a procedure that cuts the sympathetic nerves to the affected region of the body. This procedure can commonly result in increased sweating elsewhere on the body. Botox does not have any side effects unlike the surgical option where you are under a general anesthetic.

You should consult a physician to discuss your particular situation to see which procedure would be better suited for your condition.
