When’s the last time you were standing in an air conditioned room with sweat dripping down your skin? Have you ever had to throw away your favorite shirt because the pit stains just won’t wash out? You're not alone. Millions of people suffer from hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating. This condition can cause individuals to feel self-conscious and embarrassed about their appearance. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help reduce or eliminate excessive sweating. Learn more about how you can address your hyperhidrosis with injectables.
How to Know if You Have Hyperhidrosis
Sweating while under pressure or working out is normal. Sweat works to cool down your body and regulate its temperature. If you are sweating excessively, even when it's cool out or you're not physically exerting yourself, you may have hyperhidrosis. This condition can affect your entire body or just certain areas, such as your armpits, palms, soles of your feet, or face. Hyperhidrosis can also cause strong body odor because the sweat doesn't evaporate as quickly.
Hyperhidrosis can be embarrassing and make you self-conscious about your appearance. You may have ruined your favorite shirt because of the sweat stains, or avoid certain fabrics in the summer because they'll show more sweat. This condition can also affect your social life, as you may avoid shaking hands or close contact with others.
How to Treat It
For many, clinical strength deodorant can significantly help sweating. If clinical strength deodorant still isn't getting the job done, injectables, such as XEOMIN®, BOTOX® or Dysport®, are commonly used to treat excessive sweating and not just for treating wrinkles. When used in the underarms, hands or feet, they are extremely effective at slowing down sweat production. The same compound that fights wrinkles can also work to disable neurotransmitters that cause excessive sweating. Injections are FDA-approved to use in the underarms, and they should decrease sweat by almost 90%.
While treatment isn't permanent, it does last four to six months, so you don't have to block time off in your schedule for it regularly. If you're dealing with excessive sweating, talk to one of our qualified professionals to see if XEOMIN®, BOTOX® or Dysport® might be right for you. With these treatments, you can finally put your excessive sweating worries behind you.
