What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat significantly more than average to maintain an optimal body temperature. West Vancouver Skin Care can help you handle your hyperhidrosis through Botox® injections.
Hyperhidrosis treatment using Botox®
Botox® is injected into problem areas, such as the underarms. Botox® helps to block nerve activity responsible for sweating. This is the same injection that decreases muscle movement in wrinkle prone areas in cosmetic patients, and can also be used to decrease headaches in migraine-prone patients. Botox® is a safe and effective way to control hyperhidrosis and may last up to 4 months.
