Excessive Sweating - Hyperhidrosis
Sweating is one of the most important ways in which the body loses heat, however, people with hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their temperature.
Many of my patients complain that their sweating affects the quality of their personal and professional life.The conditions are equally common in men and women. It can be due to a medical disorder, so it is important to seek medical help.
Botox® injection has been approved for excessive sweating. The procedure is quick and comfortable. The Botox is placed in the underarm area evenly and the treatment becomes effective within several days, leading to a significant reduction in the amount of sweating – Underarms, Palms & Soles. In 3 – 5 days you will notice that the sweating has decreased and that you have no body odor worries any more. The improvement can last around four to nine months.
Sweat Erase: No More Under arm sweating forever
The Kosmo Sweat Erase program is a permanent sweat reduction procedure specially curated for the under arm area.
It is most suitable and advisable for people who have excessive sweating concerns and face significant body odour or sweat patches as a repercussion of the same. Thus, the Kosmo Sweat Erase program is directed more at the professionals, especially those who have to work outdoors constantly.
A US-FDA approved treatment, Kosmo Sweat Erase requires just one session to reduce the sweat in the underarm region to an extent of 99%.
One session usually takes up to 2 hours to complete including all the possible downtimes.
The procedure involves application of a numbing cream to the designated area, post which a tumescent anesthetic is given. This is followed by application of radio frequency waves which shrink the sweat glands.

Your queries answered by Dr. Chytra:
BOTOX® temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, severe sweating is reduced.
The most common one is temporary muscle weakness, which can occur when this is injected into the hands.
Botox ® injections to the armpit are extremely safe when performed by a licensed and trained professional, but like any injection, it does come with a small risk of discomfort, swelling and bleeding.

I saw instant results and my sweating reduced . So happy that I have my problem under control now. Thank you Dr Chytra .
