Botox Hyperhydrosis®

Botox Hyperhydrosis

Excessive sweating can be a very debilitating and embarrassing condition. It is often made worse during times of emotional upset and patients complain that they may need to change their clothes and shower several times a day. Treatment of this condition can involve medicine and special deodorants, but sometimes even these methods fail. Newer treatments involve the use of Botox and surgical excision.

Excessive sweating is triggered by the same chemical that causes muscle contracting. Botox works by blocking this same chemical, thus significantly reducing sweating. Surgical excision involves removal of axillary skin that is responsible for the excessive sweating. Recovery is instant with Botox, although effects take 3 to 14 days to be seen. Recovery with surgery is 1 -2 weeks, with no heavy lifting for 6 weeks. Botox lasts 6 to 9 months on average, surgery is usually permanent.
