Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a condition affecting millions of people around the world. Excessive sweating can affect various parts of the body including the face, hands, feet or underarms. At Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic we only offer treatment for underarms. Localized sweating problems are generally unrelated to underlying medical conditions. Botox is a long lasting treatment for hyperhidrosis that really works.
Unlike topical treatments, Botox targets sweating at its source. our physician injects tiny amounts of Botox into both underarms, skillfully and safely. Botox enters the sweat glands in the underarms responsible for sweating and blocks sweat release. The treatment can be done in a few short minutes.
Patients treated with Botox notice a remarkable improvement in hyperhidrosis symptoms. In clinical studies, 95% of patients with hyperhidrosis that was severe enough to interfere with their daily lives experienced the benefits of Botox after just 1 week, with sweating reduced by an average of 83%!
After the first treatment, the effects of Botox lasts an average of about 7.5 months. For nearly 40% of patients, Botox reduced sweating for more than 1 year. The amount of time Botox remains effective may vary. When your symptoms begin to return, contact us to book another appointment!
Botox has been used successfully to treat a range of medical conditions for many years now. Side effects, if they occur, are temporary. The most common side effects with Botox for this condition is a perceived increase in sweating in areas other than the underarms.
If your underarm sweating is excessive and interferes with work, lifestyle etc., then your Botox treatment may be covered under your private insurance plan. Our Botox is kept on site and there is no need for you to get a prescription and pick it up elsewhere. If you have coverage for Botox we do not require you to pay the full amount at the time of your visit. We will send your forms away and await reimbursement. All we ask is that you pay our physician administering fee, and leave the rest to us.
Hyperhidrosis is a common condition, but not one you need to suffer with anymore. Book your consultation with our physician today and let us help.
