Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition for excessive sweating. This is actually a common disorder that is affecting many people among us. Unfortunately it is uncontrollable and can be pretty embarrassing, as you would imagine. In a recent post we spoke about the many uses of Botox and how it is proven to treat more than just wrinkles on your face. Now you can add to that list the long-term relief of Hyperhidrosis!
Botox for Armpits and Much More
The injections which are best known for treating facial wrinkles have recently been approved by the FDA to diminish armpit sweat as well as sweat in most areas of your body. Many providers have been using Botox to relieve excessive sweat from patients for years, however, such use was considered “off-label.” Now that specific testing has been done by the FDA, a patient can feel assured knowing that rigorous testing, studies and trials have been performed on the procedure.
How long do the treatments last?
The first long-term study of Botox injections in the treatment of the common sweating disorder shows the injections can safely reduce underarm sweat for up to two years.
How much do the treatments cost?
Depending on the area you are receiving the treatments and how often, the costs can vary anywhere between $800 to $1,000.
