Frequently asked QUESTIONS hyperhidrosis
The most common treatment for this is Botox. It is used to treat people who have severe hyperhidrosis as it has proved to be the most effective treatment. Now, you may be wondering how can Botox be used to treat this?
Well, the Botox injection is used for this to block the nerves in the body that are responsible for the procedure of sweating. In simple terms, it blocks the sweat glands from producing excessive sweat.
If your hyperhidrosis is restricted to one area then first numbing cream is applied there an hour before the injection. Of course, if it is all over then the cream is applied to different areas where your sweat glands are present.
Once your areas are numb the expert will clean the area and then apply the injection. After the waiting period of one hour for the numbing cream to work, the injection will only take five to ten minutes.
You can expect to see results within a week. However, Botox injection is not a permanent solution. This is because over time your nerve endings will regenerate and will have to be injected again.
If this happens then you can follow up with your doctor to discuss further injections or treatment.
