Excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, is a common, embarrassing condition that causes the body to over produce sweat. It can have a major impact on your quality of life. Although high temperatures, stress, anxiety and exercising will naturally trigger the sweat glands, people that suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat regardless of all those factors.
Botulinum toxin is one of the gold standard injectable treatments for hyperhidrosis. This toxin is injected into the problem areas, and treatment can give relief within days.
Hyperhidrosis injectables are made from the same substance as those used for anti-wrinkle injectables. They work by blocking the signal the brain sends to the sweat glands. As a result, sweat will not be produced from the treated areas.
