Male-Breast-Reduction-Woodbury-StNow that it’s summer, most people are concerned with keeping sweating at a bare minimum.  But for you, sweat isn’t just a summer problem; it’s a debilitating lifestyle issue.  You’re not just sweating on the beach, or in 90-degree heat – you’re excessively sweating at all times.  It’s enough of a problem that you’ve had to cancel social plans, or change your shirt multiple times throughout the workday.

Whether you have an excessive sweating problem with your armpits, hands, or feet, there’s a surprising treatment that can help put an end to this embarrassing issue.

For decades, Botox has been the most popular solution for wrinkles, fine lines, and creases on the forehead and around the eyes.  Fortunately, Botox can also be used to treat and even eliminate excessive sweating.  The same protein that paralyzes facial muscles – botulinum toxin – can also be used to prevent your sweat glands from being overstimulated.  This is the primary cause of excessive sweating, which is why deodorant isn’t always the best solution for this condition.

Botox is even approved by the FDA for the treatment of excessive sweating, which means your health insurance may cover some or all of the costs of treatment (for armpits only; treating hands and feet is still considered “off label” by insurance companies).

If prescription deodorant (such as Drysol) hasn’t worked for you, then it’s time to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Sean Doherty, MD.  With two practices in downtown Boston and Concord, MA, Dr. Doherty is highly experienced at administering Botox treatments for the purpose of treating excessive sweating.

Botox for excessive sweating is an easy and quick procedure.  Injections are made right in the problem area, with minimal downtime.  Good candidates are those who are not on any medications that thin the blood; nor should they be pregnant or breastfeeding.  Both men and women who suffer from excessive sweating can use Botox.

Don’t let excessive sweating control your life.  Put an end to the misery by calling (617) 450-0070 and scheduling a consultation with Dr. Doherty at one of his two locations in downtown Boston, MA and Concord, MA.  Dr. Doherty’s practices serve the greater metro Boston area.
