Gain your confidence back by controlling excessive sweating.
Sweating helps keep your body's temperature regulated. However, some people suffer from excessive sweating, called hyperhidrosis. The excessive sweating can be produced by sweat glands of the underarms, palms and soles of the feet.
People with severe underarm hyperhidrosis cope by:
Changing clothes frequently
Putting absorbent materials under their clothing
Avoiding certain fabrics and styles of clothing
Methodist Women's Center Skin Renewal Suite can help with excessive underarm sweating by treating patients with therapeutic BOTOX® injections. Injecting Botox into these areas can temporarily stop the production of excessive sweat. This treatment will not interfere with the body's ability to cool itself, as sweating will continue in areas not treated.
