Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which a person’s underarms, hands, and/or feet have overactive sweat glands. Sweating is a natural bodily function that maintains a healthy body temperature. Excessive sweating can cause a person to sweat through clothing despite wearing antiperspirant or lack of physical activity.

Get The Fact

After first trying and failing a topical Aluminum Chloride (Drysol®) treatment, you are eligible for a BOTOX® hyperhidrosis treatment.

BOTOX® works by blocking the chemical signal that initiates the activation of the sweat glands. BOTOX® can reduce up to 90% of sweating in the targeted area, and the most commonly treated areas are the axilla, hands, and feet. This treatment can be covered by your insurance.

A referral is not required for excessive sweating, call us to book a complimentary consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ Who is eligible for BOTOX® Hyperhidrosis treatment?

Anyone who is 18 and older that has tried and failed a topical aluminum-based antiperspirant, such as Drysol.

+ How effective is BOTOX® for sweating?

In a clinical study, the majority of patients achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating, with many patients reporting up to 90% improvement in sweating.

+ How long will the treatment last?

In a clinical study, patients had drier underarms for up to 201 days or 6-7 months. Individual results may vary as our bodies metabolize BOTOX® differently, depending on stress levels and physical activity.

+ Are there side effects of BOTOX® Hyperhidrosis treatment?

Common side effects of treatment are temporary bleeding, mild pain, swelling, and irritation at injection sites.

+ Will sweating increase in other areas after treatment?

No. BOTOX® temporarily blocks chemical nerve signals that stimulate the sweat glands only where injected. When the sweat glands don’t receive the “message” to sweat, severe sweating is reduced to the treated area. Sweat will continue to be produced elsewhere, but there will be no compensatory sweating in other areas.

+ How much does BOTOX® for Hyperhidrosis cost?

Many health insurance plans cover all or most of the treatment. There is also a reimbursement program available that provides coverage regardless of insurance status.
