Botox blocks the nerve signals responsible for sweating. Botox continues to be the most effective long-term solution.

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating, which can have a detrimental affect on people’s social and work life. Hyperhidrosis is not a temporary condition and many people who suffer have likely been suffering for years.

Hot or cold the sweating is constant and individuals can expect symptoms such as wetness and staining of clothing, clammy hands, soggy smelly feet which can make for a miserable existence. Individuals may avoid interacting with colleagues, friends, partners and family due to embarrassment which can lead to isolation and possible depression.

Quick & Highly Effective Treatment

Botulinum toxin is one of the easiest, quickest and most effective treatments available to greatly decrease excessive sweating.

Treatment of hyperhidrosis involves injecting botulinum toxin into the identified areas. When a medication like Botox® is injected it blocks the action of the nerves that supply the eccrine sweat gland, this prevents the glands from producing sweat.

The effects generally start to take place after a few days with an estimated 80% of individuals seeing an improvement in their condition after a week.

Botox® blocks the nerve endings, but after approximately 6-8 months new nerve endings grow to replace them. The duration of the effects is an average 6-8 months but can last up to a year.

While sweating is an essential function for temperature control, the underarms have less than 2% of the body’s sweat glands. The treatment has no effect on body thermoregulation and compensatory sweating.

Hyperhidrosis FAQs

Is the treatment permanent?

It is not a permanent solution for excessive sweating as your body produces new nerve endings over time, about every six months. Once an area has been treated with Botox, the sweat glands will not produce sweat for up to six months.

When can I resume after treatment?

If everything goes well you can return to work the same day. It is best to avoid drinking alcohol or taking aspirin or Ibuprofen 24 hours after the procedure and wearing deodorant or taking a shower or bath 12 hours after treatment.
