Botox for Hyperhydrosis
Botox for Hyperhydrosis
Hyperhydrosis is a disorder characterized by excessive sweating that occurs in up to 1% of the
population. The excessive sweating can occur in the hands, in the armpits, or in the feet.
Although nobody understands the exact cause of this excessive sweating in specific individuals,
it is known that the sweating is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system.
Patients with hyperhydrosis have excessive sweating that hampers their activities of daily living.
It is sometimes brought on by stress, emotion, or exercise, but can also occur spontaneously.

What is Treatment with Botox Like?
The procedure is relatively straightforward. A small volume of Botox solution is injected into the
affected area through a very fine needle. The needle is placed just under the skin, so you may
experience some injection-related discomfort. You will receive multiple injections based on the
assessment of the area that needs to be treated.
What Should I Expect After I Have Received Botox?
You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within four weeks of your first
treatment. There is a possibility that some sweat glands may be missed, and you may continue
to experience some sweating from untreated areas. If you do not see a significant reduction in
sweating, you should follow up with the clinic.
How Long Does a Botox Treatment Last?
In a recent clinical study, the median duration of response in Botox patients was 201 days or 6.7
months. It is not a cure; your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is
right for another treatment.
