The Benefits Of BOTOX® For Hyperhidrosis

Sweating is a normal process. Everybody sweats. It is a natural mechanism your body uses to cool itself. Sweating can also be a normal reaction to stress or nervousness. Hyperhidrosis is defined as abnormally excessive sweating that cannot be attributed to exercise or heat. For people struggling with hyperhidrosis, the condition can cause embarrassment and discomfort, affecting everyday activities, and it also increases the risk of recurring or chronic skin infections. Did you know that over 910,000 Canadians are affected by hyperhidrosis? There is an easy solution to the inconvenience and irritation of hyperhidrosis. Speak with the team at Glo Skin & Medspa about the benefits of BOTOX® for hyperhidrosis.

Treatment of hyperhidrosis is really quite simple. Most people see initial results in 5-7 days and the full effects of treatment are usually apparent after 2 weeks. BOTOX® hyperhidrosis treatment effects can last up to 14 months. So, how does BOTOX® for hyperhidrosis work?

How Does BOTOX® Stop Sweating?

BOTOX® is a cosmetic and medical treatment prepared from the botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. BOTOX® works by blocking chemical signals that tell the sweat glands to activate, reducing the production of sweat in the treatment area.
