Treating Hyperhidrosis With Botox

Sweating is a natural process that helps us maintain our body temperature. Everyone sweats a little, especially after engaging in intense physical activity or after spending time in a warm environment. While sweating is natural and healthy, excessive sweating isn’t and this condition is called Hyperhidrosis. Patients with this condition sweat excessively even when their surroundings are cool and their body is at rest. Different patients have different levels of Hyperhidrosis, but in most cases, people sweat from their hands, armpits, and feet. This condition affects both men and women and can have a big impact on their quality of life.

Botox Injections for Hyperhidrose

Botox is well-known as a treatment for wrinkles and fine lines, but it has more versatile applications. Hyperhidrose patients can benefit from injections to areas that produce excessive sweat.

This treatment is highly effective and 90% of the patients report positive results. Botox forms a barrier between the skin and sweat glands. This ensures sweat isn’t produced in the treated areas. Even a single treatment can have a big impact and improve your quality of life.

Botox is a safe substance if it is administered by a trained medical professional. Dr. Doumit has used Botox for cosmetic and medical purposes for several years now and knows how to administer it effectively.

Is Botox the Right Treatment For Me?

If you suffer from Hyperhidrosis and are not pregnant or breastfeeding, this treatment is a great option for you. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself before opting for the treatment:

  • Do you experience excessive sweating from your armpits, palms, and soles of your feet?
  • Does excessive sweating cause serious harm to your self-confidence and impacts the quality of your life?
  • Do you think about sweating every day and keep experimenting with different solutions to address it?
  • Have you tried everything and are disheartened by the results?

If the answer to all of these questions is yes, you might want to consider Botox as a treatment option. Many Hyperhidrosis patients have benefited from it and they recommend it to other patients as well.

What Can I Expect From Hyperhidrose Treatment?

  • Our doctor will first assess your medical history and current health.

The Botox injections should start working in around 5 to 7 days. You will notice that you’re not producing any sweat from the treated area.
