Botox: How It Curbs Excessive Sweating
Before we jump into today’s post, we want to talk about several important terms to be sure we’re all on the same page.
For starters, we know everyone is familiar with Botox (short for Botulinum Toxin). But did you know Botulinum Toxin is a purified protein that is the active ingredient in the brands Dysport and Botox?
Dysport and Botox are just two names of the injectable drug Botulinum Toxin, and both are FDA approved. To learn more about the treatments, we have a whole page dedicated to it, here.
Dysport Does More Than Smooth Out Fine Lines
When most people think of treatments like Dysport, they imagine a person looking to turn back the hands of time and reverse the aging process.
Sure, Dysport is famous for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and combatting signs of aging. But the truth is, it can do so much more than improve your appearance and how you feel about your appearance.
Normally, we’d focus on how Dysport can be useful for aesthetic reasons. But today, we want to highlight a medical condition that can also be corrected with expert injections of Dysport.
What Can Dysport Do for Excessive Sweating?
Sweating is normal, whether it’s hot outside or you’re in the middle of a grueling workout, we’ve all been there, but some people struggle with excessive sweating.
Hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating, can significantly affect a person’s quality of life. In some cases, problematic sweating is limited to one area of the body, like the underarms or feet, a condition called focal hyperhidrosis.
While other cases are more generalized with sweating over large areas of the body. The most common areas affected by hyperhidrosis are:
- Groin area
Many people with this condition can feel embarrassed, socially isolated, and have real consequences that affect their daily lives.
With the summer months quickly approaching we know that thousands of Americans who deal with Hyperhidrosis are looking for a solution that allows them to live their lives the way they want.
At EVEXIAS Medical Center, we are pleased to provide a long-lasting and non-surgical solution: Dysport injections! Dysport can halt overactive sweat glands by blocking the nerves responsible for activating sweat production.
This has been successful in people with sweaty palms, excessive underarm sweat, forehead sweat, and even the soles of the feet.
