Hyperhidrosis is a common condition that involves excessive sweating of certain parts of the body, including the face, hands, feet and underarms. Those with this condition often need prescription-strength antiperspirants to control sweating, and may have to change clothes frequently or avoid wearing certain fabrics.
Hyperhidrosis can be treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, which block the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands, significantly reducing the amount of sweat produced. Most patients notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating in 4 weeks, with results lasting for more than 6 months. Although symptoms gradually return, results can be maintained with routine follow-up treatments.
