Excessive sweating can be embarrassing and lead to social anxiety and withdrawal from activities. Recent studies have shown that botulinum toxin injections are effective for treating excessive sweating and these treatments have long-lasting results.
Although Botox® treatments are most known for the ability to treat fine lines and wrinkles, this is also an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating, even when people are not in warm temperatures or exercising. This excess sweat causes sweat stains, an unpleasant odor, and embarrassment. The hyperhidrosis disease severity scale can be used to diagnose this condition and determine the best course of treatment.
Botox® treatment is FDA-approved for primary axillary hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating) and sweating in the hands. The botulinum toxin in Botox® temporarily blocks the nerve signals that stimulate sweat glands, and this prevents severe sweating.
Hyperhidrosis treatment only takes about 30 minutes and is minimally painful. However, a topical numbing cream can be applied to the skin to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. Botox® will be injected into the armpits and/or hands with a small needle by one of our highly trained medical injectors.
After Botox® injections, you should avoid strenuous activity for 1-2 days, but all other activities can be continued immediately after treatment. Most patients start to notice improvements in excessive sweating after 2-4 days and the complete results will develop within 2 weeks. Sweating will be reduced for 6-9 months after one treatment, but some patients may need a second maintenance treatment.
If you want to treat excessive sweating and improve your quality of life, Botox is a safe and effective treatment for hyperhidrosis. Schedule a consultation at Blume Skin & Body to learn more about Botox for hyperhidrosis treatment.
