Botox For Hyperhidrosis
BOTOX® treatments are used to help control the symptoms of excessive underarm sweating (known under the medical term of Hyperhidrosis) by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.
Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that defines individuals who sweat more than the body would normally need to maintain optimal temperature. It affects approximately 3% of the population – some 950,000 Canadians – of whom 300,000 have a severe form of the disorder. Hyperhidrosis affects work productivity, confidence, social comfort, emotional well-being and wardrobe choices. Studies show that hyperhidrosis impacts quality of life similar to or even greater than other well-known dermatological conditions, such as severe acne or psoriasis.
BOTOX® injections are expected to temporarily stop the production of excessive sweating in the treated areas only. The effect can last up to seven months, with your symptoms returning gradually.
