Hyperhidrosis is a medical term for excessive or abnormal sweating. This term is used when a person might sweat profusely, even when environmental conditions do not necessarily call for sweat production, such as when it’s cold out. BOTOX® has been approved by the FDA to be used to treat hyperhidrosis in the underarm area, and it can also be applied to other areas where excessive sweating might occur, such as the hands, feet and face.
The condition of hyperhidrosis causes a person’s nerves, which signal heat production to occur, to become overactive; nerves typically only triggered when body heat rises. This creates excessive sweating at inappropriate times, often leading to discomfort or embarrassment. BOTOX® works by blocking those overactive nerves, and interrupting the signals, preventing the production of excessive sweat.
