Excessive, uncontrolled sweating of the hands can be stressful and embarrassing. As many as 1.3 million Americans have been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis.
Several medical treatments can address excessive sweating, but there is one that might surprise you.
Botox, the same cosmetic injection that is used to fight fine lines and wrinkles, can turn off the waterworks!
Learn how you can use Botox for sweaty palms during advanced botox and fillers training at National Laser Institute!
Botox For Sweaty Hands
Botox injections are used to treat several medical conditions. It is a neurotoxin made from botulinum toxin, which addresses fine lines and wrinkles. While Botox got its start as a cosmetic treatment, physicians also use Botox for medical conditions such as muscle spasms, migraines and hyperhidrosis.
A medical term for excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis, refers to any abnormal sweating. Botulinum toxin treatments have been FDA-approved for people who sweat excessively from their armpits. Individuals who sweat excessively often soak through their clothing as normal antiperspirants don’t work well enough.
Also, Botox can prevent sweaty hands and feet. Studies have found that Botox has successfully treated palmar hyperhidrosis in 80 to 90 percent of all cases.
During a Botox certification course, physicians and nurses will learn that Botox weakens the nerves that supply the sweat glands. This prevents the release of acetycholine, which causes muscles to contract, and therefore reduces or eliminates sweating in the treated area.
Botox Training at National Laser Institute
During National Laser Institute’s Botox injection training courses, we teach physicians, nurses and medical professionals the latest, most advanced techniques for treating their clients.
Each aesthetics course for Botox and fillers combines didactic theory with clinical hands-on training for the ultimate learning experience.
In the classroom, you will learn about facial anatomy, Botox injection techniques, patient selection, contraindications and more. Clinicals are spent in a medical spa setting where you will put your new skills to use as you watch comprehensive Botox demonstrations and treat scheduled clients.
One of the things that set us apart from other medical aesthetics schools is we spend millions of dollars each year on scheduling clients for you to work on to gain real-world experience in a medical spa environment.
By the end of a cosmetic injection course, you will have had experience with Botox, dermal fillers (Restylane®, Perlane® and Juvederm®), Kybella, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and more!
