Sufferers in the Albuquerque area and beyond should know that using Botox® for hyperhidrosis can effectively manage the symptoms, keeping underarms dry for more than half a year. The popular Botox® injectable is more than a cosmetic that treats fine lines and wrinkles. When it comes to hyperhidrosis, the prescription treatment works to block signals sent to sweat glands, temporarily preventing them from producing sweat. BOTOX® is not just for treating wrinkles. When injected into the appropriate locations, the neuromodulator works to block nerve signals sent to sweat glands, thereby preventing them from producing sweat. The treatment can be repeated between three to six months to maintain the benefits. Call 505-855-9267 to learn more about Botox® for hyperhidrosis in Albuquerque at Western Dermatology Consultants.
