Everyone sweats and sweating excessively is totally normal on particularly hot days or during exercise. However, if you are experiencing an unusual amount of sweating in inappropriate situations, you may have hyperhidrosis. This condition causes too much sweat production due to overactive glands. Those living with this issue can often feel embarrassed in social situations and can experience sweating at night. Thankfully, treatment options do exist, and they don’t require any complicated procedures. Here at BodyLase® Med Spa, we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to help you find relief from excessive sweating.
What Causes Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis can be broken down into two categories: primary and secondary. Primary hyperhidrosis is a hereditary condition that has to do with improper nerve function in our bodies. With this condition, the nerves responsible for signaling your sweat glands become overactive even without physical activity or a rise in temperature. People who have the primary variant experience sweat on their palms, the soles of their feet, and sometimes on their faces. Secondary hyperhidrosis occurs as a side effect of a medical condition like diabetes, menopause, and infection, among others. Regardless of which type you struggle with, we can offer you an effective means of addressing your sweating.
Treatments with BOTOX® Cosmetic
The good news about this condition is that certain nerve-blocking medications and prescribed antiperspirants can help ease symptoms. We provide the BOTOX® Cosmetic at both our Raleigh and Cary medspas. These neuromodulator injectables have been shown to effectively shut down certain sweat glands, thereby reducing the severity of the problem for months at a time.
