Hyperhydrosis Treatments

BOTOX® for excessive sweating, also referred to as hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis is characterized by excessive sweating which affects the quality of life for those who suffer from it. It creates social discomfort and impacts emotional well being and confidence levels, as sufferers often try to avoid situations that will highlight the disorder. Hyperhidrosis can be generalized (affecting the whole body) or localized to specific parts of the body that contain sweat glands, including underarms, hands, feet, scalp or facial areas. While hyperhidrosis may be present at birth, it can occur at any age and often presents during adolescence.

BOTOX® Therapeutic is a purified protein that is injected into the afflicted area to temporarily block the chemical responsible for activating the body’s sweat glands. While in effect, patients are free from the effects of excessive sweating, and studies demonstrate dryness lasting from 4 to 18 months.
