Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) June 1, 2006
The Skin Center Medical Spa, with locations in Pennsylvania and Ohio, is now offering Botox® as a treatment for Hyperhidrosis, more commonly known as excessive underarm sweating.
Excessive sweating is caused by the over stimulation of the sweat glands. People with this condition often produce four or five times more sweat than a person who does not suffer from the condition. “Hyperhidrosis can be a very embarrassing and debilitating condition for many people,” said Dominic Brandy, M.D., board certified cosmetic surgeon and founding medical director of The Skin Center Medical Spa. “Botox® provides temporary, but effective relief for Hyperhidrosis, and for many people this relief is life-changing.”
When used to treat excessive sweating a small about of Botox®, which received FDA approval for the treatment of Hyperhidrosis in 2004, is injected into the underarm area. The Botox® treatment temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. In one study, 81 percent of patients treated with Botox® achieved a greater than 50 percent reduction in sweating. Botox® treatment for excessive sweating is not a cure, and over time the symptoms will gradually return if repeat injections are not performed. Typically, the Botox® injections will need to be repeated every four to six months.
“Hyperhidrosis controlled a large part of my life,” said Ellen, a patient of The Skin Center Medical Spa. “I was always very aware of what I wore, where I went and what types of activities I participated in. Receiving Botox injections to treat my hyperhidrosis has made such a positive impact on my life. A few injections, just two or three times a year and my condition is gone. I am free to do and wear what I please!”
