Effective Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis Treatment With Botox
Excessive sweating from your head can be frustrating and embarrassing. It can affect your ability to run errands, work or have intimate relationships with others. Just thinking of a stressful situation can cause you to break out in beads of sweat. If you sweat profusely from your head or face for seemingly no reason, you may have craniofacial hyperhidrosis. Botox® injections used to treat wrinkles can be an effective craniofacial hyperhidrosis treatment.
Causes of Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis
There are two types of craniofacial hyperhidrosis. If you are diagnosed with primary focal hyperhidrosis, your condition may not have a known cause. Excess sweating may be present when there is a family history of hyperhidrosis. The symptoms of primary focal hyperhidrosis show up early in life, typically before a person reaches 25 years of age.
Secondary hyperhidrosis may mean certain diseases or hormonal imbalances may be behind the excess sweating. Hyperthyroidism, pregnancy, diabetes, menopause and infections may all cause sweat glands to become overactive. The most common cause can be medications or supplements you are taking. Facial sweating can become worse under stress or anxiety.
How Botox Helps Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis
Botox works to treat craniofacial hyperhidrosis by blocking the chemical in your body responsible for triggering sweat glands. According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, Botox injections can decrease excessive sweating by up to 87% for patients. Noticeable results can be experienced within four days after Botox treatment and last for six months or more. The outpatient process for these FDA-approved injections takes approximately 15 minutes, and you can continue your normal activities immediately after treatment. Repeat injections may be necessary for the first year after the initial procedure.
