Is excessive perspiration causing you physical discomfort and embarrassment? Are antiperspirants insufficient, or irritating to your skin? Do you suffer from perspiration in areas such the armpits or palms of your hands, where you can’t stop it? If so, Botox may be the solution you’ve been seeking. Yes, the same Botox you know and trust to keep the frown lines and crow’s feet away can also help you stay comfortably and confidently dry.
We begin with an examination, and a discussion about your symptoms to determine of Botox is the right solution for you. The treatment is safe for most people, with only mild side-effects.
The procedure involves a series of tiny injections beneath the skin at precise locations in the treatment area. At North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics, Botox and other injectables are administered by a Board-Certified Dermatologist, Board-Certified Dermatology PA, or Board-Certified Dermatology ARNP.
Botox treatment is minimally invasive, long-lasting, and effective for most patients. Side-effects are rare and generally mild, and the results last up to six months, often longer with subsequent treatments. This is a great option for patients who are embarrassed or inconvenienced by excessive sweating. With Botox, you can quit worrying about sticky handshakes or staining your favorite shirt.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Botox approved by the FDA for treating hyperhidrosis?
Yes, Botox has been tested extensively and it has gained FDA approval for the treatment of underarm perspiration. It is often used off-label for treatment of excessive sweating in other areas, such as the palms.
How long will the treatment take?
The actual procedure consists of a few injections and takes around 5-10 minutes per armpit, and a little longer for each palm. However, if this is your first treatment, please allow time for an examination and consultation so we can determine if you are a good candidate.
Does Botox treatment cause the sweat to “back up”?
No. It does not block your sweat glands in any way. Instead, it works by interrupting the nerve signals that stimulate overproduction of perspiration.
How long do the results last?
Each individual responds differently to treatment. However, typically, the results last for around six months for most patients, and longer with subsequent treatments.
