Despite being commonly known to treat facial wrinkles and fine lines, BOTOX® is FDA approved to treat inordinate underarm sweating


Sweaty skin can be embarrassing. Many people in the United States experience excessive sweating. This common disorder is known as hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a strong contributor to many people’s self-consciousness. Our mission at Avo Medical Aesthetics is to help you feel more comfortable with your body. If hyperhidrosis is bothering you, we offer BOTOX® as a solution to restore your confidence!

What Is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition that causes excessive sweating, affecting 2-3% of people in the U.S. People with hyperhidrosis can experience excessive sweating in their underarms, hands, or feet. While hyperhidrosis may not harm anyone’s health, it is not doing their confidence any favors. Some people who sweat extensively may avoid certain things like handshaking and get as severe as avoiding social activities. If hyperhidrosis is affecting your quality of life, consult with our staff to find out which of our treatment options can help you!

What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

In many instances, hyperhidrosis can be a symptom of neurological, infectious, or other kind of illness. However, there are plenty of cases of people who live a healthy lifestyle that experience extensive sweating. In such cases, the temperature of your location and how you are feeling can be catalysts for hyperhidrosis.
