Have you ever felt self-conscious about your excessive underarm sweating? Are you bothered by sweat stains, or are you unable to wear specific colours because of them? Are you concerned about the odour caused by frequent underarm sweating?
Anti-sweat injections are the answer you’ve been searching for!
In persons 18 years and older, botulinum toxin type A can be injected into the skin to treat the symptoms of extreme underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when topical treatments are not adequate.
How does it work?
Anti-sweat injections work by inhibiting the nerves that cause your sweat glands to activate. When your body temperature rises, your nervous system typically stimulates your sweat glands. This is how your body cools down on its own. The nerves that signal the sweat glands are hyperactive in persons with hyperhidrosis.
Your hyperactive nerves are effectively blocked when you receive anti-sweat injections straight into the area of your body where you sweat the most. You don’t sweat if your nerves can’t communicate with your sweat glands.
A variety of factors can cause extra sweating.
The etiology of hyperhidrosis is mainly uncertain, while generally, it is harmless. Hyperhidrosis is commonly divided into primary and secondary hyperhidrosis, with abnormal sweating present in both.
Excessive sweating that is not induced by heat, exertion, or an underlying ailment is known as primary hyperhidrosis. This kind frequently emerges in childhood and is caused by factors that generate sweating spouts, such as stress or coffee. This kind does not necessarily last a person’s entire life, but it typically shows up at some point in their life. The etiology of primary hyperhidrosis is unknown. However, it is commonly attributed to genetic sweat gland hyperactivity.
