Do You Suffer From Excessive Sweating? Botox Can Help!

Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is a condition caused by overactive sweat glands and can significantly impact one’s quality of life.

Any part of the body can be affected but the most common areas include:

  • Armpits
  • Face
  • Hands
  • Feet
  • Groin

Over 900,000 Canadians suffer from this condition though it seems to affect women (aged 21-35) the most.

If you suffer from hyperhidrosis and antiperspirants aren’t working, then Botox injections may help you find some relief.

How can Botox treat Hyperhidrosis?

In 2004, the FDA approved botox injections as a safe and effective way for treating hyperhidrosis.

Botox neurotoxin is a purified protein that helps control sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. This prevents sweat from being produced in the treatment area.

Treatment Time Approximately 10-20 minutes
**The treatment time will vary depending on the size and location of the treatment area**
Does the hyperhidrosis treatment hurt? You may experience some injection-related discomfort.
Our highly qualified, registered nurses will ensure that there is minimal pain during the procedure.
How long does it take for the sweating to stop? The reduction in sweating takes effect within the first few days.
It may take up to 1 week to reach full effectiveness.
How long do the results from a hyperhidrosis treatment last? After the Botox injections have been administered, the sweating is usually controlled for 6-8 months.
How often will I need the Botox injections? On average, repeat treatments are often required every 6 months.
**Duration improves with repeated treatments**
Are there any side-effects? If any side effects do occur, they are temporary. Some of the most common include minor bruising and swelling at the injection site.


Am I a Suitable Candidate for Botox Hyperhidrosis Treatment?

There are very few restrictions regarding the botox treatment for hyperhidrosis. In general, patients who are NOT SUITABLE include those that: 

Are pregnant or breastfeeding
