What Is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating. Excessive sweating happens when a person sweats more than is necessary; this can be unrelated to heat or exercise. Generally, a person suffering from this condition will sweat excessively from a specific area like their palms, underarms, or face.
BOTOX® for Hyperhidrosis Procedure
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved injectable that temporarily paralyzes muscles to treat certain muscle conditions, reduce wrinkles, or stop sweat. This injectable works by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands.
During the procedure, we will inject BOTOX® into the area where excessive sweating occurs. A topical anesthetic may be applied to manage discomfort, but the procedure itself is quick, lasting roughly 10 minutes on average. BOTOX® injections require zero downtime – you will be free to return to your normal activities immediately.
What Results Can I Expect?
Real results may be noticeable within 24-48 hours, but peak results will become apparent after approximately two weeks. The more units injected, the longer the drying effects tend to last. Everybody breaks down BOTOX® differently, so the duration of the results will vary. Typically, results will last for 3-6 months after your injections.
