Hyperhidrosis is the excessive production of sweat, a condition that can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Botulinum toxin is a proven, safe and effective treatment, which takes minutes and lasts for months.
Botox® is used to disable the eccrine and apocrine glands and stop them from producing and secreting sweat from the body. Small doses of Botulinum toxin are injected in a grid-pattern to the affected area which blocks the actions of the nerves that supply the sweat glands, thus preventing the glands from producing sweat.
Hyperhidrosis treatments take no more than 30 minutes. Perspiration normally diminishes substantially within 48 hours and results can last from 6-12 months, at which point the treatment can be repeated.
