Botox for Underarm Sweating
Botox injections are an effective nonsurgical method of treating excessive armpit sweating. When injected by a professional into the armpits, it blocks the sympathetic nerve signals that stimulate the excessive sweating. Botox for sweating is quick, performed in the office, and doesn’t even require the use of an anesthetic!
Botox for Sweating Feet
Excessively sweaty feet, or plantar hyperhidrosis, often accompany palm sweating. Unfortunately, too much sweat on the feet can cause other health problems like fungal infection and foot odor, not to mention make it difficult to wear certain types of footwear. Neuromodulator injections in the feet can reduce the amount of sweating the patient experiences, prevent fungal foot infections, and improve overall quality of life.
Botox for Sweating Hands
Palmar hyperhidrosis, or sweaty palms, is the most prevalent type of excessive sweating condition. Many patients start experiencing the symptoms of palmar hyperhidrosis during childhood, with the sweat often occurring to the point of dripping down the hands. Often embarrassing and having a negative affect on self-confidence, sweaty palms can be easily treated with Botox injections.
