Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a medical condition that can affect both men and women. It is characterized by excessive sweating that is not caused by exercise or a hot environment and can cause self-consciousness and embarrassment. BOTOX injections are a safe and effective solution for those experiencing profuse sweating in the underarms, hands, and feet.
BOTOX is a purified protein that blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. By interrupting this chemical messenger, BOTOX prevents sweat production at the injection site. A single treatment of several injections is typically sufficient to reduce sweating for several months; however, follow-up sessions are usually necessary to maintain results. The number of BOTOX units used, injection site, and frequency of treatment will vary with each patient.
Individuals who are bothered or self-conscious about their excessive sweating may find BOTOX injections to be an effective option. A consultation with Olga Nazarov-PA is required to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Please contact our office today to book your consultation appointment.
Hyperhidrosis treatment is simple and typically takes 15-30 minutes to complete. The treatment begins with a detailed consultation in which we assess the level of your sweating. A topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to ensure a well-tolerated procedure. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, Olga Nazarov, PA-C will inject tiny amounts of Botox throughout the area of excessive sweating.
There is little to no downtime associated with BOTOX, and you will be able to return to your normal routine immediately. You may experience some mild bruising, swelling, or tenderness, but these effects will resolve with time. The full results of treatment are seen within two weeks and can last anywhere from 4 to up to 14 months.
