Highly Effective Xeomin Treatment Eliminates Embarrassing Sweaty Underarms for Women

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition associated with uncontrollable excessive sweating that is unrelated to exposure to heat, exercise, or stress. This medical condition affects more than 15 million Americans, with many individuals reporting that their hyperhidrosis often interferes with their daily activities and can have a significant negative impact on their quality of life. One of the more commonly affected areas of the body is the armpits. Most people with hyperhidrosis have at least one episode a week and experience excessive sweating symmetrically, with both sides of the body being affected equally. Hyperhidrosis can dictate how you live your life – keeping you inside during the summer months. It can limit your clothing options for fear of sweating and staining your shirts. It can prevent you from enjoying social obligations to the fullest as you may worry about the potential embarrassment of lifting your arms. Luckily, hyperhidrosis can be diagnosed and managed with an array of non-invasive treatment options by a board-certified physician such as Dr. Adam Burick.

One of the most effective treatment options for hyperhidrosis is Xeomin (Botox alternative) injections. Since there are a variety of factors that can cause hyperhidrosis, including a genetic predisposition, an overactive thyroid, neurological conditions, or a side effect of medications, the combination of treatment options recommended to you by your healthcare provider may be influenced by the type of hyperhidrosis you have. Xeomin (Botox alternative) is one of the most effective and now most popular treatment options for reducing the symptoms of different types of hyperhidrosis. Xeomin works by inhibiting nerve signals that activate the sweat glands in the affected area. While there are few potential side effects and zero downtime, it is always critical that an experienced board-certified physician such as Dr. Adam Burick perform Xeomin injections.

What is axillary hyperhidrosis & how can I stop sweating so much under my arms?

Axillary hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that affects the underarms or armpits.  While it is normal for people to sweat from their underarms to regulate the body’s temperature as a response to exercise, heat, or stress, excessive sweating due to hyperhidrosis can occur at any time and can be disruptive to one’s daily activities, causing social anxiety, embarrassment, and a worse overall quality of life. This kind of excessive sweating can occur due to hormonal imbalances, menopause, hyperthyroidism, or a genetic predisposition to overactive sweat glands. Like other types of hyperhidrosis, axillary hyperhidrosis can be managed with are highly effective Xeomin injections.

Does Xeomin help hyperhidrosis?

Xeomin, a neurotoxin composed of botulinum toxin, has been approved by the FDA for the medical treatment of excessive sweating in the underarms or axillary hyperhidrosis. An experienced healthcare provider, such as board-certified physician, Dr. Adam Burick, may often rely on their expertise to use Xeomin injections as a treatment for hyperhidrosis affecting other areas of the body. Botulinum toxin injections are used to essentially “turn off the sweat glands.” Xeomin acts by blocking the release of acetylcholine and shutting down the sweat glands’ action at the injection site. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that the nervous system sends to the sweat glands as a signal to activate. By blocking this signal, Xeomin effectively reduces the amount of excessive sweating an individual with hyperhidrosis experiences. It takes up to two weeks for the effects of Xeomin injections to kick in, after which they can last from 4 to 6 months, depending on the area being treated. According to sweathelp.org, Xeomin injections have been shown to reduce sweating by 82-87%.

Xeomin injections are Dr. Adam Burick’s preferred treatment option for hyperhidrosis and are widely recommended by experienced dermatologists and healthcare providers to treat axillary hyperhidrosis or excessive armpit sweating. The typical dosage of Xeomin injections to treat hyperhidrosis of the axilla is 50 units per underarm. The exact units of Xeomin injections may vary, depending on the individual patient’s need. Relief from sweating in the treated area will happen in just a few days after your Xeomin injections, and there is no recovery time following the procedure. You can return to your regular daily activities immediately following the Xeomin injections. Xeomin injections have been proven to be a quick and extremely effective means of treating axillary hyperhidrosis, with very few potential side effects. The most common side effects of Xeomin injections include a mild amount of swelling, bruising, and tenderness at or near injection sites, which resolve on their own within two weeks of treatment.
