Suffering from excessive foot perspiration can be an incredibly challenging and embarrassing problem to deal with. Often, excessive sweating in the feet can be tied to a medical condition called hyperhidrosis. Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England is proud to bring patients BOTOX® injections that can provide relief from foot perspiration.
What Causes Excessive Foot Perspiration?
While some people only experience the inconvenience of foot perspiration on particularly hot days or after intense workout sessions, for others it is a daily, constant source of distress. Excessive foot sweating is often times part of a greater medical condition called hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes people to sweat excessively, regardless of external temperature, typically in a few specific areas of the body. The feet are one of the most common areas where people experience these signs of excess sweating. Frequent perspiring in this area can be extremely embarrassing and uncomfortable for the people that experience it. These individuals may need to change their socks several times a day, and avoid certain types of footwear to hide the odor of their sweat. Unfortunately, excessive sweat in the foot area can even cause health problems and make individuals more susceptible to developing foot fungus.
How Can BOTOX® Injections Help?
Recently, it has been discovered that individuals suffering from hyperhidrosis can benefit greatly from receiving BOTOX® injections. When injected into the feet, BOTOX® works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands and trigger foot perspiration. Once this product has been injected into the feet, perspiration there halts.
The results of a single BOTOX® injection session bring perspiration relief that lasts between six and twelve months. Following this length of time, patients will need to receive periodic injections to sustain the results of their initial treatment.
