Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is an issue that cause a lot of embarrassment and social awkwardness for many people all over the world. The sweat stains under the armpits and the torrents of sweat pouring down the face is not a pretty sight.
A number of treatments for the condition have been proposed but none gave the sufferers any relief. However, Botox, a drug used to control wrinkles on the face and neck region, has proven to be of enormous advantage to the people suffering from hyperhidrosis. The action of the drug paralysis the muscles underneath the skin and thus causes a marked reduction in the volume of the sweat.
Botox has proven to be so effective in the treatment of hyperhidrosis that it has been adopted as the single most employed course of therapy for the condition. Many people suffering from the condition have opted for the Botox treatment and have achieved remarkable results for their conditions.
One big issue that has plagued the people opting for Botox treatment is the number of injections that are required for the treatment and the pain that is often associated with these injections. The worst combination is hyperhidrosis and needle phobia. These people usually prefer to bear the social stigma of sweaty armpits rather than submit to a regime of injections. Many doctors claim that the pain is minimal because of the shallow depth of the injections. However, the mere sight of a needle is enough for many to shy away from the treatment.
Injection machines using high pressure Dermojet Promedical device. The process of injecting using the Dermojet Promedical device is pretty painless because of a simple fact-it does not use needles of any type. The device is able to inject medicines directly into the human body using a procedure called intradermic projection.
The device is ideal for injecting Botox into the palms and armpit region of the patient because the procedure is rendered painless. There is no needle and thus no possibility of any arousal of fear and distress in the patient (particularly those suffering from needle phobia).
Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis involves at least 20 to 30 injections administrated very closely. This creates a blanket region of the drug that covers the entire area with heavy sweat gland activity. The action of the sweat glands is hindered by the Botox and the patient could resume their life immediately.
There is a section of cosmetic medicine community that have voiced the opinion that Dermojet Promedical device is not suitable for Botox injection to the palms of the patients. The reason is the thicker skin of the palm. It is speculated that the device might not be able to inject the drug into the palms.
However, in the case of Botox for hyperhidrosis, the device is ideal even for the palms. This is because of the fact that the drug needs to be injected just below the skin. The device could go to this depth and is therefore ideal for Botox treatment.
