Botox for Hyperhidrosis
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is the condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating/perspiration, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. It is associated with a significant quality of life burden from a psychological, emotional, and social perspective. As such, it has been referred to as the 'silent handicap'.
Hyperhidrosis can either be generalized or localized to specific parts of the body. Hands, feet, armpits, and the groin area are among the most active regions of perspiration due to the relatively high concentration of sweat glands. When excessive sweating is localized (e.g. palms, soles, face, underarms, scalp) it is referred to as primary or focal hyperhidrosis. Generalized or secondary hyperhidrosis usually involves the body as a whole and is the result of an underlying condition.
As the sweat glands reside underneath your skin, it is no wonder why topical treatments don't seem to get underarm sweating under control. PrecisionTx laser procedure goes right to the source, underneath the skin, to safely aplate the underarm sweat glands.

BOTOX® is a proven treatment option for severe underarm sweating when antiperspirants fail
BOTOX® treats the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines do not work well enough in people 18 years and older. It is not known whether BOTOX® is safe or effective for severe sweating anywhere other than your armpits. BOTOX® treatments temporarily block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands resulting in reduced sweating.
Many Americans have severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, commonly known as severe underarm sweating, a treatable medical condition.1
Sweat is your body’s temperature regulator, but people with this condition have overactive sweat glands where the sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirement for cooling.
Only a medical professional can diagnose severe underarm sweating that is not being effectively managed with clinical strength antiperspirants.
