Stop Excessive Sweating with Botox For Hyperhidrosis
Most people are familiar with Botox Cosmetic as a breakthrough wrinkle cure. But many are now seeking Botox treatments as a remedy for hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Dr. Lin, Dr. Farley-Loftus and Dr. Vuong have performed this procedure for many patients from Summit, Livingston, Florham Park, New Providence, and throughout northern New Jersey at their skin care center, Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills.
Botox first gained FDA approval in 1989 for the treatment of crossed eyes, vocal cord spasms and other facial spasms. As more research was conducted, dermatologists learned that it could be used to alleviate muscle spasms in people with cerebral palsy, alleviate migraine headaches and even reduce hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Now Botox injections for hyperhidrosis are a common procedure performed by dermatologists.
Individuals with primary axillary hyperhidrosis — excessive underarm sweating — produce four to five times more sweat than most individuals.
Sweating through shirts, body odor and damp discomfort become a daily routine at work or school. Injections of Botox for sweating work by reducing sweat production in the treatment area. The typical person can expect results that last six to nine months. That means a once or twice per year treatment can virtually eliminate this problem. Under the supervision of a board certified dermatologist near you, Botox for hyperhidrosis is a safe, well-tolerated treatment. If you live in Madison, Parsippany, West Orange, Chatham, Kinnelon, Roseland, Montclair, or anywhere in northern New Jersey, and are interested in treating your hyperhidrosis call Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills at 973-232-6245 to schedule a consultation with board certified dermatologists Dr. Lin, Dr. Farley-Loftus and Dr. Vuong to discuss if you are a good candidate for Botox treatment for excessive sweating.
