Beating Hyperhidrosis Through Botox

Sweating is a mechanism that the body uses to cool off. But excessive sweating, commonly known as hyperhidrosis, can cause stress and embarrassment. But with Botox in Dubai, the condition can easily be treated.

People with hyperhidrosis tend to sweat from different parts of their body including feet, hands, hairline and armpits. The reason this sweating has a name is because it cannot be taken care of by using the normal over-the-counter deodorants. There are two types of hyperhidrosis:
  1. Primary hyperhidrosis: This type of excessive sweating happens without any reason – medical or otherwise.
  2. Secondary hyperhidrosis: Also known as generalized hyperhidrosis, it is caused by certain medical conditions or happens as a side-effect of medication.
Causes of hyperhidrosis Though the research on the causes has not been conclusive, the available data indicates that primary hyperhidrosis is mostly hereditary. Those who suffer from it are diagnosed in their childhood or puberty stages and sweat throughout regardless of weather or frame of mind. On the other hand, secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by underlying problems including metabolic and neurologic medical problems. Symptoms Although the prime symptom of hyperhidrosis is wetness, others include:
  • Excessive sweating on your palms, face, feet, back, armpits and hands.
  • Soft skin that leads to peeling.
  • Dermatological infections on parts that tend to perspire.
Treatment with Botox Taming hyperhidrosis is not easy without an invasive procedure to paralyze the muscles in that area. Botox, which is FDA approved as a method that provides effective relief from hyperhidrosis, is the most effective option because of its paralyzing effects. Once you visit your general practitioner, he/she will first diagnose you with the condition by asking you a series of questions. If your symptoms fit with hyperhidrosis, other treatment options will be recommended to you, but if they do not work, Botox will be more like a last resort. Treatment of hyperhidrosis with botox is only recommended for the under arms, whereby the Botulinum toxin will be injected, but they can be used on the palms and feet as well. Botox basically works by temporarily obstructing chemical indicators from the nerves that rouse the sweat glands. For you to stay dry and sweat-free, the Botox sessions have to be repeated every 6 to 8 months. Botox success rate as an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis lies at more than 90 percent and the side effects of Botox include pain at the injection site and symptoms resembling flu.
