Botox for Hyperhidrosis
Living in Arizona, especially during the summer, we tend to sweat way more then we’ d like. Have you ever been out with friends for dinner and lift your arm up to summon the server and notice you have a large sweat stain in the armpit of your nice shirt? At Desert Health Specialists we have a solution for you, its Botox for Hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term describing over active sweat glands. Many Americans have a called primary axillary hyperhidrosis, aka “sweaty armpits”. Sweating isn’t a bad thing, as sweating is your body’s natural temperature regulator. But in primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating goes well above your body’s normal requirements for cooling. You probably even do several of the things listed below already because of your excessive sweating.
- Change clothes frequently
- Can’t wear white shirts anymore
- Put absorbent materials under clothing
- Avoid certain fabrics and styles of clothes
- Get embarrassed when people point it out
At Desert Health Specialists we have a solution for your sweaty armpits, it’s Botox. Yes you read that right, Botox the treatment movie stars and celebrities have been using for year to keep their face from moving. Botox for hyperhidrosis can reduce sweating almost completely. We have patient usually requesting treatment every 6 – 9 months even though only some of the underarm sweating has returned. We see a lot of patients coming in for treatment in the spring right before our Arizona summers. Treatment is fast as we apply a topical anesthetic cream to help minimize the sensation from the injections.
