How Wrinkle Relaxers Can Help Stop Your Excessive Sweating

There’s a reason the phrase “no sweat” means “no big deal.” Humans tend to perspire while under intense emotional pressure or physical strain from exercise or exposure to high heat. And while sweating plays a key role in health, helping to cool down your body to a healthy range as needed, excessive sweating is neither fun nor helpful.

If you struggle with hyperhidrosis, the clinical name for excessive sweating, we can help. Dr. Bonnie K. Marting, aka “Dr. Bonnie,” and her expert team at At Anushka Med Spa, treat this condition with injectable wrinkle relaxers. Keep reading to learn more.

Hyperhidrosis 101

Roughly two to three percent of the population sweats excessively due to hyperhidrosis, making it a common disorder. It often stems from nervous system problems, in which the nerves that signal your sweat glands become overactive, and sometimes runs in families. While it’s less common, you can also experience hyperhidrosis as a result of an underlying medical condition such as diabetes, heart attack, certain types of cancer, or an infection.

While your sweating symptoms may worsen with exercise, emotional distress, or heat, you experience them even without such a trigger. And all of those factors can make your sweating worse.

Signs it’s time to seek treatment for hyperhidrosis include:

How wrinkle relaxers can help

Dr. Bonnie and her team treat hyperhidrosis with wrinkle relaxers, such as Botox® and Dysport®. These injectables contain botulinum toxin, which can not only minimize fine lines but block the nerve signals causing your symptoms. Wrinkle relaxers may be especially helpful for excessive sweating in your forehead, armpits, palms, and feet.

Each treatment takes only minutes in our office. Many people tolerate the tiny “pinch” sensation from the small needle, but we also provide a topical numbing agent or ice beforehand for added comfort—especially for particularly sensitive areas. Afterward, you can expect noticeable results within five days.

Good candidates for wrinkles relaxers

Most anyone in generally good health who sweats excessively can consider wrinkle relaxer treatment. You may not be a good candidate just yet if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. If you have a history of a neuromuscular disorder, talk to your doctor about whether or not this treatment is right for you.
