Botox for hyperhidrosis hands
Botox being a satisfying solution
Botox is one of all the solutions for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. And, the Food and Drug Association (FDA) approved Botox for Hyperhidrosis in 2004 and authorized its usage across 20 countries.
Botox is the name for a drug that is botulinum toxin which is a neuromodulator. Botox is injected into the required and affected body part to block the secretion of chemicals that causes sweat gland activation. In Shine MD Medspa & Liposuction Center, the Numbing agent is used followed by approx. 50 units of Botox for the treatment. Bruising or swelling may be experienced after the procedure which generally is minor.
Aesthetic Study journal reported that above 66% of patients are satisfied with a 75% reduction in sweating issues and hyperhidrosis.
“Botox has been a revolutionary treatment for hyperhidrosis: it has helped improve the quality of life for many patients,” Fiessinger said. “It’s a great treatment, it works well, and patients are really happy with the results.”
