Botox treatment for excessive sweating is a life changing procedure which works brilliantly. It is a procedure which is much more effective and which is free of significant side effects when comparing to the surgical and abrasive deodorant alternatives.
Many patients tell us that excessive sweating from their armpits or hands is socially very restrictive and embarrassing. It means that they have to wear dark clothes or have to layer their clothes, even in hot weather so that the wet patches under the arms do not show.
How does it work?
Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis works similarly to botox treatments for facial lines and wrinkles, in that it works by blocking nerve impulses. In the case of hyperhidrosis treatment the botox is injected through a tiny needle superficially under the skin, where the sweat glands are found, and it works by blocking the nerve impulses going to the sweat glands.
What can this procedure treat?
The classical and most popular treatment is the underarm sweating.
Hand sweating is the second most requested procedure, but sweating in areas such as the face, pubic area and feet can also be treated.
How good are the results?
The results are amazing, with most of our patients describing them as life changing. The improvement of sweating is classically 80%-100% and it should last 6-12 months. This really is the holy grail for our patients who have tried many other things with no success.
