Treating Hyperhidrosis with Botox: How it Works

Hyperhidrosis is an embarrassing and uncomfortable problem to deal with if left untreated. Excessive sweat often causes a need to change clothing several times in one day. Patients with this condition sometimes become reluctant to attend events or social engagements that last more than a few hours, in fear that they may start sweating and have no reasonable explanation for changing clothes. Don't let hyperhidrosis rule your life. Botox treatments can save you from sensitive social situations, ruined clothing, and sweaty insecurities.

What to Expect During a Botox Treatment

Once a topical anesthetic is applied to the area you plan to treat, Botox will be injected into the site near your sweat glands using a micro needle. The Botox creates a blockage in the nervous system that decreases chemicals that encourage sweat production. Studies show that Botox can decrease sweating by up to 50 percent.

This is a quick treatment that requires no recovery time. According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, Botox is a safe and effective treatment for excessive sweating. Most patients report a painless experience, along with noticeable improvement within two to four days after the procedure.

Is Botox For You?

Antiperspirants are often the first recommendation from doctors treating hyperhidrosis, but in many cases even prescription deodorants don't provide effective results. Botox treatments might be the right choice for you if:

  • You are still changing clothes throughout the day because of sweat marks.
  • You have to throw out clothes prematurely because of stains.
  • You find yourself sweating even in mild temperatures.
  • You often experience sweaty palms regardless of your emotions or level of anxiety.

How Long Will Botox Treatments Last?

Satisfactory results typically last six to twelve months, so Botox injections will become an annual or semi-annual expense to keep up.
