If excessive sweating is making your life a misery, there are effective treatments available that can ease your emotional distress. People who sweat a lot often feel self-conscious and embarrassed about the problem, but it is possible to get it under control. So what is the best treatment option for excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis? Let’s take a look.
While sweating is the body’s natural response to the need to cool itself and regulate body temperature, there are people who sweat too much. It’s often so bad that it affects everything they do, and interferes with social interaction. Most people suffer from excessive sweating in the underarms.
What is the best option for excessive sweating?
Excessive sweating is an indication that the sweat glands are working overtime, the best treatment option is one that addresses the activity of the glands. This can be achieved with the use of a muscle relaxant.
Muscle relaxants are widely used in cosmetic dermatology for treating facial lines and wrinkles. When used for hyperhidrosis, they block the signals sent from the nerves, which would normally activate the sweat glands. They prevent the release of a chemical compound known as acetylcholine, which is responsible for stimulating the sweat glands.
During treatment the muscle relaxant is injected into various areas of the armpit. Most clients will see a noticeable reduction in sweating within 3 to 5 days, and the results last 6-9 months. The product is quite safe and well tolerated, and there is no downtime.
This type of treatment is recommended for individuals that have not had success with other treatment options such as antiperspirants, and prescription tablets.
