Ask Dr. Peirson – How do you treat excessive sweating?
Is there a solution for my excessive sweating?
Yes, there is! Timely question too, as we are approaching the warmest time of the year. Severe underarm sweating is an actual medical condition called hyperhidrosis and can have a serious impact on your everyday life. Sometimes, antiperspirants and deodorants just won’t cut it. There is a medical treatment offered to people 18 years and older that is even covered by several third party insurance companies. In a single appointment, through a few tiny injections of BOTOX® with an ultra-fine needle, this treatment can be administered in minutes, and results can last for up to one year.
BOTOX®, derived from a naturally occurring bacteria, temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, sweat is simply not produced. BOTOX® is an extraordinarily safe drug manufactured by Allergan, and it has been used by millions of people since its inception in the 1980s. It should only be injected by a physician, or a nurse with oversight by a physician, in an accredited office.
