Botox (botulinum toxin) treatment is highly effective in reducing the volume of sweat produced. Botox is a protein and a neurotoxin which acts as an inhibitor to overactive sweat glands. Botox is injected into the affected area reducing the volume of sweat produced by the sweat glands.
As with any dermatology treatment, results can vary patient to patient, however hyperhidrosis procedures are proven to be highly effective.
Botox hyperhidrosis treatment typically produces results that can last for three to four months. We recommend periodic treatment to maintain results.
