Botox for Excessive Sweating

Botox is an effective treatment for excessive armpit sweating. Botox works by interfering with the nerves, which activate the sweat glands.

Side effects of Botox for sweating are mild and few. There is a small amount of discomfort as the Botox is injected. The discomfort is brief and generally limited to the 10 to 15 minutes that the treatment is taking place. Occasionally, there is trace bleeding or bruising. Rare side effects would include a chance of an injection site becoming infected. As every individual is unique, it is important to understand that, although many people see dramatic improvements in their sweating, individual results do vary.

The positive effects of  Botox for Excessive Sweating treatment range from three to nine months on average. The treatment often reduces the sweating to a level controlled by regular antiperspirants.

The cost of the Botox prescription may be covered for many individuals with private drug plans. The injection fee is a separate fee and is often not covered by insurance. The injection fee is payable at the time of treatment. The fee is accepted as a tax-deduction eligible medical expense.

Please feel free to call for more information or to set up your personal consultation.

Some redness and mild tenderness of the skin, mild swelling of the tissue, occasionally a few discrete tender areas which may persist for minutes to a few days. A less likely after effect is that the heat generated in the skin and fatty tissue could result in a small skin burn. It causes heating in the deep skin and the fatty tissue (up to 6 mm in the bipolar, and 4 cm in the unipolar modes).
