Hyperhidrosis

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be an embarrassing and frustrating condition and can have a significant negative impact on the quality of your life. Until recently, hyperhidrosis was difficult to control but at Okanagan Skin Care centre, we offer our patients BOTOX® therapies as a long-lasting and effective treatment option for excessive sweating.

BOTOX® targets sweating at its source and blocks the nerve signals in the specific glands responsible for the hyperhidrosis. Our skin care specialists will be able to develop a specific hyperhidrosis treatment tailored to your particular concerns and goals so that you can go back to living happily and confidently!

BOTOX® injections can be used to treat hyperhidrosis in several areas of your body including:
  • Face
  • Armpits
  • Hands
  • Feet

To treat the symptoms of excessive sweating in these areas, BOTOX® is injected directly into the glands responsible for the uncontrolled perspiration. By blocking the signals from the brain to these glands, BOTOX® prevents hyperhidrosis but still allows for healthy sweating elsewhere on the body.

Duration: Depending on the location and size of the affected area, approximately 15-20 BOTOX® injections are administered just under the surface of your skin. The procedure typically takes 20 minutes.

Number of treatments: The effect of BOTOX® in controlling hyperhidrosis is not permanent though the results are effective, lasting from 6-8 months after the initial treatment. The results from repeat treatments usually last longer and you may not need another BOTOX® injection for up to 18 months.

At Okanagan Skin Care Centre, we want our patients to enjoy a high quality of life and to feel comfortable in their own skin. That is why our team of highly trained skin experts can work with your specific concerns and goals and develop a hyperhidrosis treatment that will give you long-lasting, successful results.

BOTOX COSMETIC® FAQ

How do the BOTOX® injections work?

BOTOX® injections block signals from your facial nerves to your muscles. The treated muscles are no longer able to contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Though it has many uses, it is most often used to eliminate forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines.

Will the BOTOX® treatment be painful?

BOTOX® is a quick and relatively painless procedure. Because the treatments are injected through a fine needle, only minor discomfort is experienced. Our Registered Nurses Skincare Specialist will do everything they can to ensure that you stay relaxed and comfortable throughout your procedure.

What can I do to prepare for my BOTOX® therapy?

Prior to your treatment, it is important to talk with one of our Registered Nurses about any precautions you should take regarding the cosmetic procedure. Typically pregnant or lactating mothers should not use BOTOX®. Also, certain medications can aggravate certain side effects of BOTOX® so it is important to disclose your full medical history and all the medications you are currently taking to our specialists.

What can I expect after my BOTOX® treatment?

After your procedure you may experience slight bruising and on the rare occasion, a mild headache. However, both of these are minor effects and are resolved quickly. You will begin noticing the improvements of your treatment within 1-2 weeks, with the effects lasting for up to 4 months.
