Botox for Sweating  (Hyperhidrosis)


Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which produces a lot of sweat, commonly from underarm, nose, feet, and hand. Many people with Hyperhidrosis surfer from stained clothes, social interaction and business, due to small to huge problem such as holding a pen, gripping a car steering wheel, or shaking hands. Although neurologic, endocrine, infectious, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause hyperhidrosis, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy and also genetic cause. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all their waking hours, regardless of their mood or the weather.


The body uses sweat as a form of temperature control, in order to cool itself. Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating, which means sweating more than normal. In hyperhidrosis, your body’s sweat glands overact. By using Botox injection, we can control sweat glands’ reactions.

Botox for Excessive Sweating – How does it work?

Botox® / Dysport® can temporarily paralyze muscle, which is often in the news as a cosmetic treatment for wrinkles. But it has actually been used in many areas of medicine for some time, such as in the treatment of muscle spasms and certain types of headaches. Its latest medical niche is the treatment of excessive underarm sweating. A small amount of Botox is injected with a very fine needle into roughly 25 to 20 spots in each armpit. This may produce up to 14 months of relief from sweating. The injections are uncomfortable, but the use of a very small injection needle makes them tolerable. Before the treatment, the treatment area will be numbed with topical numbing cream to minimize the pain.
