Residents of Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, and the surrounding areas that suffer from hyperhidrosis are encouraged to visit Schaumburg Dermatology. If topical and oral therapies are unsuccessful, we offer Botox as a safe treatment plan to reduce excessive underarm sweating for 6-12 months.
When to See a Doctor
Hyperhidrosis, which causes excessive and unpredictable sweating, is not a life-threatening condition, but it can cause embarrassment as well as other physical symptoms. Many people opt for treatment if symptoms or problems include:
- Painful chafing
- Body odor
- Having to constantly change clothes due to underarm sweating
- Feeling self-conscious to the point of avoiding social situations
- Difficulty writing due to slippery palms or sweat soaking through the ink on a page Reluctance to shake hands
If you have tried oral or topical treatments to minimize the effects of hyperhidrosis and they have not worked, consider treating excessive underarm sweating with Botox. Botox temporarily helps to stop the chemical signals that stimulate sweat glands. However, that does not mean Botox will stop all sweating or that sweat will get backed up where treatment occurs.
This procedure lasts only about 10 to 15 minutes and involves around 15 injections to the underarm area. Within four weeks, you should notice a considerable decrease in underarm sweating.
