Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)


Sweating-underarm

Botox can be injected to help reduce excessive sweating - this procedure is also known as hyperhidrosis treatment. When severe sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants are not working, you may be a suitable candidate for the Botulinum toxin treatment.

The body areas that can commonly experience over active sweat glands are: the under arms, palms, feet and forehead. 
Botox is approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough.
Botox is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.

What areas can be treated?

Botox injections can be used to treat excessive sweating in the following areas:
  • Armpits
  • Palms and fingers
  • Feets
  • Face including forehead, nose
  • Head or scalp area

How is the procedure performed?

Numbing cream can be applied to the area for 30 minutes before although some patients prefer not to use this and opt for an ice pack to numb the area instead. Many patients do not require either. Please be advised that for underarm treatments, we will require the area to be freshly shaved.

The actual procedure takes about 20 to 25 minutes and is relatively straightforward. A series of small Botulinum toxin injections are injected to the relevant areas through a very fine needle.

After the treatment, avoid touching, rubbing or applying anything on the treated area for 4 hours to prevent infection and spreading of the medicine. Also, it is recommended not to exercise for 24 hours after the procedure.

How long will it last?

Your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment. It is recommended to have the treatment every 6 months to receive the best possible results.
