Don’t Sweat It: Treating Hyperhidrosis with Botulinim Toxin

Hyperhidrosis, or overactivity of the sweat glands, is a relatively common condition that results in excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis can have a number of causes, including conditions such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Overactive thyroid
  • Menopause
  • Glucose control disorders
  • Anxiety conditions

In addition, excessive sweating can be a side effect of certain medications or can exist without another condition. Patients with hyperhydrosis are often embarrassed by the condition and look for effective treatments. Generally, patients will try topical treatments such as antiperspirants and find them ineffective. Fortunately, botulinim toxin is a safe and effective treatment supported by Class 1, Level A evidence of efficacy.
