Imagine yourself having a date and you notice that your armpits are wet. Would you not be self-conscious about it?

As far as our body reaction is concerned, sweating is normal especially when we are exposed to high temperatures or stress. When these occur, our body reacts by triggering eccrine sweat glands to produce sweat. Thus, normalizing your body temperature. These eccrine sweat glands are commonly found in the palm of your hands, face, and armpits, as well as in your feet.

Since we are situated in Dubai, where heat is intense especially during the summer months, the tendency for our sweat glands to overreact is high.

The problem of sweating arises if it is excessive, medically known as hyperhidrosis. It is not life threatening; however, it can cause psychological distress like anxiety, low self-esteem and sometimes depression.

Through modern science and technology, scientists and researchers have found a way to combat hyperhidrosis through Botox treatment.

Botox or Botulinum toxin is commonly used as an anti-wrinkle treatment. Due to its popularity for this specific treatment, only a few are aware that it can also be considered as a hyperhidrosis treatment. Botox injection acts by blocking the nerves that trigger the sweat glands. Through timely injections, hyperhidrosis can be prevented.
