How To Stop Excessive Facial Sweating?

It’s not an easy problem to solve. Mild forms of hyperhidrosis are often treated with oral antiperspirants, which can help prevent sweating for up to 12-24 hours after application. But if the excessive sweating is severe or persisting, your doctor may recommend a prescription topical treatment called cystoplasty (also known as Botox). This procedure permanently blocks certain nerve pathways that cause the sweat glands to fire excessively.

You’ll need medication approval from your doctor before undergoing cystoplasty. Also, because it involves injecting Botox directly into facial muscles that control sweating, there are potential risks involved in this type of cosmetic surgery — including long-term side effects such as permanent muscle weakness and injury.
