Botox for Hyperhidrosis
Botox is used to treat excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis. Through a series of superficial injections to the area that is excessively sweating, Botox will reduce the contraction of sweat glands which causes significantly less excretion of sweat to be produced.
Underarms. Hands and Feet may also be done by consult of the dermatologist.
Treatment takes approximately 20-30 minutes.
Desired results are seen after single treatment. First treatment may require a two week follow up for possible additional injections.
Repeated treatments are generally performed every 6-9 months, as normal sweat gland functioning begins to return.
Some discomfort is associated with treatment. It is best described as a stinging or mild burning sensation during injections. This dissipates immediately after the injections are complete.
Avoiding strenuous exercise is recommended for 24 hours post injection. Tenderness, redness and small injection site bumps are normal and will dissipate within a few hours. Slight tenderness may be felt for 24 hours post treatment.
Results are normally seen beginning at 24-48 hours post injection and fully developed at one week.
