What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis refers to excessive sweating that can occur even when there is no connection to heat or physical activity. This condition can lead to such profuse sweating that it saturates clothing, or causes hands to become excessively wet. Experiencing this heavy sweating can disrupt daily life and give rise to feelings of social anxiety and embarrassment.
However, there are treatments available for hyperhidrosis that can be effective. The treatment process usually begins with the use of antiperspirants. If antiperspirants do not provide sufficient relief, alternative medications and therapies can be explored. In more severe cases, surgery may be recommended to either remove sweat glands, or sever the nerves responsible for excessive sweating.
Insurance cover for Botox Hyperhidrosis treatments.
Botox can be used to try and combat hyperhidrosis by blocking the release of neurochemicals that stimulate the sweat gland activity. The procedure involves administering multiple injections to the specific areas of the skin that are prone to excessive sweating. Most patients notice a reduction in symptoms within one week, and maximum results within two weeks. Symptoms are reduced for about six months, and after that time the procedure must be repeated.
Ensuring adequate protection and coverage during the performance of these treatments is crucial. If any complications arise during hyperhidrosis treatments, clients may be more prone to file claims, putting clinics at risk of bearing the entire financial burden of these claims if they lack sufficient insurance coverage.
