Botox Hyperhidrosis: Non-surgical Sweat Reduction Treatment.
Did you know Botox can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating?
The most common area to use Botox to treat hyperhidrosis is the underarms, and with summertime and wedding season upon us, now is the perfect time to have this service done.
Botox treatment to stop excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is safe, non-invasive, and can produce a 90% decrease in sweat production with results lasting 6 months or more.
How does Botox stop sweating?
Botox blocks the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that binds to your sweat gland to signal the release of sweat.
In those with hyperhidrosis, the nerves that signal the sweat gland to produce sweat are overactive.
By injecting Botox directly into the area that sweats excessively such as the underarms, the overactive nerves that contribute to the overproduction of sweat are blocked, causing the sweat gland in that particular area to no longer produce sweat.
What to expect:
Botox treatment for excessive sweating is quick and simple, and little to no pain is experienced. The underarms are numbed before treatment to ensure the utmost comfort possible. The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.
Patients are free to resume normal activity after their treatment, but it is recommended to avoid intense exercise or activities that will cause excessive sweating for 24 hours post-treatment. Patients will also want to avoid products with perfume and/or deodorant for about 12-24 hours post-treatment to avoid irritation. Patients may feel a little tender around the treated area the day after treatment, but treatment is otherwise very tolerable, and little to no pain is to be expected during and after treatment.
You can expect to begin seeing results as early as 2-4 days after your treatment and about 2 weeks for the full effect to take place. After 2 weeks it is recommended to schedule a follow-up so that your provider can assess whether or not a touch-up is needed. The effects of Botox for excessive sweating are not permanent, but patients can expect results to last about 6 months or more.

Quick and simple description of treatment:
Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive sweating. This is caused by overactivation of the sweat gland, resulting in excessive perspiration that is not associated with typical triggers such as intense exercise or temperature. Botox injections have become a very common and effective treatment for managing this condition.
Botox is injected directly into the underarm region, blocking the nerve signal of the overactive sweat gland and essentially stopping those specific sweat glands from producing sweat.
Results can be seen as early as 2-4 days after your treatment and can take about 2 weeks for the full effect to take place. The effects of Botox for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) are not permanent, but patients can expect results to last about 6 months or more.
