What Is Hyperhidrosis?
A person with hyperhidrosis often sweats excessively and unpredictably. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest. Generally, a person suffering from this condition will sweat excessively from a specific area like their palms, underarms, or face. BOTOX® may be used to treat hyperhidrosis after deodorant and oral medications have been found ineffective.
BOTOX® for Hyperhidrosis Procedure
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator that temporarily blocks the secretion of the chemical responsible for “turning on” the body’s sweat glands. By blocking or interrupting, this chemical messenger, botulinum toxin, “turns off” sweating at the area where it has been injected. BOTOX® injections are very shallow, meaning that the medicine is injected just below the surface of the skin, where it remains. This procedure is extremely effective, though can be costly.
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 approximately six months after your injections.
