What is it hyperhydrosis?
Hyperhydrosis is a condition when the body's thermal regulation system (perspiration) becomes over active.
The body uses perspiration to help regulate body temperature, it is comprised of two main sweat glands – the Eccrine and Apocrine glands. At times, and in some individuals, these glands may become over active. Classic locations of Hyperhydrosis are the face, underarms, hands, and feet.
A Physiological Problem
In the opinion of most physicians, the condition of Hyperhydrosis is considered to be a physiological problem and not a psychological problem. Historically treatments have mainly been surgical; these treatments have offered relief but come with lasting side effects.
Only within the last few years has the use of Botox been utilized in treating Hyperhydrosis and without the side effects associated with surgical treatments. A quick 10-minute treatment can dramatically reduce excessive sweating. Botox blocks the nerves to sweat glands thus reducing the glands activity.
Botox treatments can be effective in high stress situations when being your best is important – such as a job interview, wedding or public event.
