Botox for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

Botox for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

Areas that can be treated include;

» Underarms
 » Hands
 » Feet
  » Face

Botox is FDA approved  for the treatment of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the underarms) in patients unable to obtain relief using antiperspirants. When used to treat underarm excessive sweating, Botox has been shown to result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating. Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months but some studies have found it can last as long as 14 months.

Research has shown that treating excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, feet, head and face and other relatively small body areas (like under the breasts) with Botox is safe and effective.
