Axillary hyperhidrosis is a sweating condition localized at the armpits. It consists of abnormal and excessive localized sweating that surpasses the normal thermoregulation level. In fact, the body naturally regulates its temperature – for example, when you feel hot, the body cools up your organism by evacuating water, which produces sweat. Stress can also cause that reaction. Axillary hyperhidrosis is a situation that is hard to live with since it often comes with social consequences such as social phobia. The discomfort associated with this condition can’t be ignored and its cause is often unknown. We sometimes associate it to genetic factors, but it can also be related to diabetes, menopause, anxiety or a thyroidal dysfunction. There are different treatments that help regulate this condition. One of the most efficient techniques is therapeutic Botox injections.
Therapeutic Botox injections to fight axillary hyperhidrosis
Botox is injected next to sweat glands – it acts as an obstacle against sweat signals by blocking the connection between glands and nerves that usually communicate the information to the brain. By disrupting this message, it deregulates the sweat system’s functioning in your favour by inhibiting its activation. Results are visible right after the first injection – you will notice a reduction of sweat production. The results last for 6 to 12 months after the treatment. When the results start to fade, book another injection session at Novaderma medico-aesthetics.

Consult your doctor
Therapeutic Botox injections need to be approved and recommended by a doctor. In fact, your doctor will prescribe you the treatment. Note that in the case of axillary hyperhidrosis, therapeutic Botox is the only treatment authorized to be prescribed to reduce and regulate this condition. It is important to find a doctor whose recommendations will assure you a good medical follow-up prior to making this decision. You will therefore be able to see if this option is the best for your situation, based on the severity of the condition, your physical condition as well as your metabolism.
A treatment that can be partially refunded
If you have a private health insurance, research the terms and conditions related to injection treatments since in some cases, a partial reimbursement is possible. In fact, axillary hyperhidrosis is considered a physical condition and therefore, the intervention could be partly taken care of by your insurance.
Life after receiving the treatment
Axillary hyperhidrosis is a visible condition that can cause concerned individuals to encounter social consequences and important anxiety. Making the decision to receive the treatment is a step forward towards a better quality of life. The efficiency of this treatment allows the patient to quickly live a normal life and abandon any stress related to social interactions they used to face.
