Botox and Hyperhidrosis – The Two Go Hand in Hand This Holiday Season

The holiday season, although fun, can cause stress for some people. Busy shops, malls and parking lots; shopping rush; choosing gifts for others; and having to deal with a grumpy family member or two.

If you suffer from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and notice that it’s worse during this time of the year, worry not – Botox treatment can help combat the condition.

 Ever since 2004, when the FDA approved BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) for the treatment of severe hyperhidrosis, BOTOX has been used to treat millions of patients in at least 20 countries.

OnabotulinumtoxinA is a natural, purified protein that can temporarily block or interrupt the chemical responsible for “turning on” the body’s sweat glands. Basically, Botox “turns off” sweating at the area where it has been injected, which is just below the surface of the skin.beautiful-girl-with-flowers-7Research has proven that treating excessive sweating of the armpits, and other relatively small body areas, such as palms of hands, and soles of feet, with Botox is safe and effective.

The results of using Botox to treat underarm excessive sweating have shown 82-87% decrease in sweating.

The improvements start approximately 2 to 4 days after the treatment, and the full effects usually within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months, but can last as long as 14 months. Additional data from published research studies demonstrated that repeated treatments are safe and effective.

Those who suffer from hyperhidrosis have found that Botox treatments brought meaningful, long-lasting improvements, and a higher quality of life.

Injections require relatively little time to administer, as a very fine needle is used to inject tiny amounts of Botox just under the skin in the area of excessive sweating. Your doctor will assess how many injections need to be given for the area that needs to be treated. Some form of anesthetic techniques can be used to ease any potential discomfort. The procedure does not pose any restrictions in work or leisure activity following the day of the treatment.

After you receive Botox injections, it’s recommended that you follow-up with your doctor as recommended, as it will enable him to ‘touch-up’ any sweating areas that may have been missed during the first round of the treatment.
