Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. Sweating is one of the most important ways in which the body regulates temperature. Those with hyperhidrosis, produce sweat in amounts far greater than required to control their temperature.
There are two main types of hyperhidrosis. The more common type is focal hyperhidrosis, which can affect the armpits, hands, feet or face. Generalised hyperhidrosis is less common, affecting the whole body. This is often caused by other health problems like diabetes or hyperthyroidism. Often when the health problem is treated, the sweating usually stops.
Botox injectables are used to reduce excessive underarm sweating, Botox works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands, for many people it will drastically improve their quality of life, making it a highly effective treatment.
