While sweating is a natural bodily function, many people experience an overproduction of sweat on various body parts. Hyperhidrosis is a diagnosable condition in which sweat glands produce excessive amounts of sweat in certain body parts. In addition to oral medication and prescription creams, many medical providers have turned to neurotoxin injections to reduce excessive sweating in the underarm area, hands, and feet.

Types of Hyperhidrosis
There are three types of hyperhidrosis, focal, generalized, and secondary which means every case of hyperhidrosis is unique to the patient. Focal hyperhidrosis is the most common, affecting certain body parts such as your palms, feet, and armpits. While generalized hyperhidrosis is less common, it affects the entire body, and secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by an underlying medical condition such as diabetes, menopause, or taking certain medications. Neuromodulator injections are a minimally invasive treatment for hyperhidrosis, consult your medical professional and see if this treatment is proper for you!
How Does Botox Work for Hyperhidrosis?
Traditionally, medical professionals use neuromodulator injections (aka Botox) to temporarily improve frown lines, dynamic wrinkles, and other imperfections. This prescription medication can also treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis. Neuromodulators can treat excessive underarm sweat by blocking the chemicals that stimulate sweat glands. Neuromodulator injections are an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis because the injection blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the sweat glands. This therapy can reduce excessive sweating and is most effective in people with focal hyperhidrosis.

The medical professionals at VAIN Medi Spa can assist in treating your hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating on various parts of your body. The most common treatment areas include the underarms, palms, face, and feet. Neurotoxin treatment in the underarms is an approved treatment to reduce excessive sweating. While hyperhidrosis is a common reason for people to get this treatment, it is also common among working professionals who produce more sweat when nervous or performing under stressful conditions.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Most results last around six months; however, some have reported their treatment lasting up to a year! Several factors will determine how long your neurotoxin treatment will last, such as your age, metabolism, and the number of treatments you have received. Additionally, people treating hyperhidrosis tend to schedule their treatments every six months to maintain results and prevent excessive sweating from returning.
