Botox for Hyperhidrosis
Botox can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Botox works by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands.
What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis (hi-pur-hi-DROE-sis) is the medical condition that causes excessive sweating. Excessive sweating happens when a person sweats more than necessary; this can be unrelated to heat or exercise. Generally, a person suffering from hyperhidrosis will sweat excessively from a certain area like their palms, underarms, or face. Besides disrupting normal daily activities, this type of heavy sweating can cause social anxiety and embarrassment.
How can Botox treat hyperhidrosis?
Botox is an FDA-approved drug that temporarily paralyzes muscles to treat certain muscle conditions, reduce wrinkles, or stop sweat. Botox works by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands.
What can I expect during my appointment?
During the procedure, your medical provider will inject Botox into the area where the excessive sweating occurs. A topical anesthetic may be applied to manage discomfort, but the procedure itself is quick, lasting no more than ten minutes. Botox injections require zero downtime; you are free to return to your normal activities immediately.
What can I expect from the results?
Real results may be noticeable within 24 to 48 hours, but peak results will become apparent after two weeks.* The more units injected, the longer the drying effects tend to last. Everybody breaks down Botox differently, so the duration of the results will vary. Typically results will last for 3 to 6 months after your injections.*
