How Can BOTOX Treat Excessive Sweating?

The neurotoxin in BOTOX affects the nerve signals that trigger the sweat glands to produce perspiration. If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating, it is an embarrassing and uncomfortable condition, and could cause you to avoid certain types of social activities, negatively affecting your overall quality of life. The BOTOX injections into the armpits, hands, or feet, working by affecting the nerves that trigger sweating, for relief from the condition – and a happier, more confident life.

Non-Invasive, Non-Surgical Treatment For Hyperhidrosis In San Diego

BOTOX has been found to be extremely effective in treating hyperhidrosis. An FDA-approved treatment for excessive underarm sweating, at Avalon Laser, we perform this injectable treatment to assist our patients to finally resolve this embarrassing and unpleasant physical condition.

Am I A Candidate For BOTOX For Hyperhidrosis?

If you are one of the estimated 7.8 million people in the USA who suffer from excessive sweating, you have likely tried many options to try to resolve the condition, including clinical strength anti-perspirants, or carrying a set of extra clothing with you, or avoiding certain activities that trigger the condition. If you are in this situation, you need relief, and may be a candidate for our San Diego BOTOX treatments. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you must wait until you have given birth and finished breastfeeding to safely undergo BOTOX injections for any reason.

How Long Will The BOTOX Take To Work?

The effects of the BOTOX take about a week before you experience relief from excessive sweating. As the days pass, you will notice that you produce less and less sweat, with a final result of freedom from the condition. You will need retreatment periodically, with every person reacting slightly differently. Over time, with consistent treatments, you may require less frequent treatments. Initially, BOTOX injections will need to be repeated every seven to sixteen months.

There are several reasons our San Diego patients select this treatment. The benefits include:

  • Does not have negative side effects as medication
  • Can easily be maintained with repeat injections

The Treatment: What Should I Expect?

  • The area to be treated is numbed prior to treatment to make it more comfortable to experience. Ice may be applied prior to injections.
  • The BOTOX is injected in a grid pattern, with each injection about one to two centimeters apart to affect the maximum number of sweat glands in the area. The injections feel like a minor pinch.
  • Your treatment is complete.
