Hyperhidrosis Treatment with Botox
Hyperhidrosis is abnormally excessive sweating that impacting 5% of the global population - about 365 million people. The primary function of sweat glands is to assist in the maintenance of body temperature in response to heat exposure or exercise. But excessive sweating is not necessarily related to heat or exercise and is particularly prevalent in men. Hyperhidrosis could also be defined as sweating beyond what is necessary to take care of thermal regulation.
Excessive sweating may be primary (idiopathic, essential) or secondary to a number of diseases and prescribed drugs. Hyperhidrosis can be localized or generalized. Regardless of the type or cause of hyperhidrosis, it is frequently socially embarrassing and occupationally disabling. It can affect your social and personal life.

Botox injections work to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat.
