Sweating (hyperhidrosis) is the heat loss event of the body. A normal person sweats 4-5 times a day. Those who sweat excessively, generally or locally, produce more sweat than necessary to control their body temperature. Sweating is common in the face, armpits, feet and hands and is mostly caused by stress.
In sweating; Many health problems such as genetic factors, excessive sweat glands, excess weight, some medications, stress, menopause, thyroid gland disease, diabetes are effective. In addition, sweating increases in direct proportion to the overwork of the nervous system. However, factors such as exercise, hot weather, stress, caffeinated drinks, and spicy foods also increase sweating.
Since hyperhidrosis patients produce large amounts of sweat, their hands, feet, chest and armpits are constantly moist. This situation negatively affects their daily life.
Armpit sweating treatment with Botox
Usually, patients complain of excessive armpit sweating. Especially in the summer months, these types of complaints increase much more. The most effective method in the treatment of hyperhidrosis is botox application.
Botox application is very practical. Botox drug is injected into the area with excessive sweating with a fine-tipped insulin injector. The procedure is extremely simple and the effect is immediately visible 2 to 10 days after the procedure. Underarm sweating is reduced by 80%.
The biggest mistake of the patients is that botox reduces sweating in the whole body, which is an erroneous information. Botox only reduces sweating in the applied area. It is also one of the most accurate methods to choose in excessive hand-foot sweating. However, the effect time of botox application for hand and foot sweating is a little shorter. It is a short-term application and is effective for 8-10 months.
