Hyperhidrosis Albuquerque

Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably, even when the body is at rest and/or the air temperature is cool. Sweating helps regulate the body temperature, and in most cases it is completely natural, however when a person suffers from hyperhidrosis they may feel discomfort and embarrassment due to noticeable sweating and odor. Excess wetness from overactive sweat glands can also cause unsightly and irritating rashes or other skin conditions. This condition can result in low self-esteem, embarrassment, inability to wear certain clothing styles, and the inhibition of daily activities. Hyperhidrosis affects 2-3% of the population and there is no known cause for the condition, however it is shown to be genetic.

If you suffer from excess sweating due to hyperhidrosis, there is a solution that may be right for you. By injecting BOTOX® neurotoxin into the sweat glands it helps control the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical antiperspirants do not work well enough by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. This results in the elimination of excessive sweating in the treated area. This treatment can last up to 12 months.
