Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is an embarrassing problem for many people. When antiperspirants and topical products are not effective, treatment with Botox injections can help. The injections work by temporarily stopping the production of sweat in the treated area. They do this by blocking the chemical signals sent by the nerves that stimulate the area’s sweat glands. Without these signals, severe sweating ceases. Since only the targeted area is affected, sweat is still produced in other parts of the body.
Treatment for hyperhidrosis with neurotoxin therapy is only indicated for the underarm area. During the procedure, your clinician will use a fine needle to inject the treatment under your skin. Approximately 15 injections are needed, but the procedure only takes 10 to 15 minutes.
