Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

We provide Botox (Botulinum toxin) injection for excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) with the effective results by an experienced Botox specialist doctor.

When severe sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants are not working, you may be a candidate for Botulinum toxin treatment. .

Botox is approved to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough. Botox is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.

The procedure

Prior to the treatment: The night before the procedure you should shave your armpits. The day of the treatment you should wash off any deodorant prior to your appointment and on the day of the treatment you should wear an old top to avoid staining of your favourite top with the iodine dye used to identify the sweat glands.

The actual procedure takes about 15 to 20 minutes and is totally straightforward. A series of small amounts of Botulinum toxin injections are performed at the identified underarm areas through a very fine needle.

Post treatment

Simply avoid touching, rubbing or apply anything (ie. deodorants) on the treated area for 4 hours to prevent infection and spreading of the medicine. Also, it is recommended not to shower on the same day of the treatment or exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. Specific instruction will be given.

When will I get the result and how long does it last?

You will get the result at about 72 hours after having the treatment.

Your next treatment can be given when the effects of the first course wear off. This usually happens after 6 to 9 months. Then your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment.
It is recommended to have the treatment every 6 months to receive the best possible results.

Is the Botox treatment right or me?

When antiperspirants cannot control the symptoms of your severe sweating, Botox may be able to help. Our Botox specialist doctor can help you decide if this treatment is right for you.
In order to make the right treatment decision, you should tell the doctor about all your medical conditions.
