At Dr. Stacie Weber’s Cosmetic Clinic, we want to ensure our clients suffering from hyperhidrosis walk out happier, more confident, and more secure than when they walked in. That’s why we recommend Botox treatments to curb excessive sweating in your specific problem area.
Botox is renown for its effects in diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which it does by blocking the nerve signals that direct facial muscles to contract. We can also use Botox to treat hyperhidrosis. When injected into the underarms, Botox is able to temporarily inhibit the secretion of chemicals responsible for stimulating the body’s sweat glands. As a result, sweating decreases to normal levels. Unlike other treatments for hyperhidrosis, Botox does not cause compensatory sweating.
Botox is most effective for treating hyperhidrosis in underarms. Treatments for Botox are found to be from 80-90% effective in this area, with normalized sweating beginning within a week of the treatment and lasting for anywhere from six to 12 months. Risks and side effects are minimal when performed by an experienced clinician.
However, like all injections, some patients may experience some soreness, redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site, potentially lasting for up to a few days.
If you would like help in dealing with your hyperhidrosis, but are unsure or concerned about receiving Botox treatments, the team at Dr. Weber’s Cosmetic Clinic will be happy to help.
