BOTOX Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Ottawa

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition where profuse sweating occurs beyond what is necessary to cool the body. It affects approximately 2 to 3 percent of the population and can lead to anxiety, embarrassment and isolation.

Fortunately, we deliver some of the best hyperhidrosis treatment Ottawa has to offer with BOTOX Therapeutic. One or more injections can help reduce the quantity of perspiration your body produces. Results last approximately 7 months and most insurance providers will cover a large portion of the cost.

About Hyperhidrosis

It is necessary for the body to sweat, but when the sweating is excessive, the body is overachieving. Typically, people who suffer from this condition will have excessive sweat on one or two body areas, including underarms, palms of the hands, feet, or head. This condition is often embarrassing and difficult to hide, with sweat soaking through clothing, hands so wet that they must be continually wiped, or the face and scalp wet with perspiration.

When Other Treatments Have Failed – BOTOX

Many people have tried clinical-strength anti-perspirants with limited results. 81% of patients treated with BOTOX experienced a 50 percent or greater reduction of sweating. If you are one of the many people who struggle to deal with excessive sweating, relief is possible. If you are facing any of the following problems, you may be a candidate for our Ottawa excessive sweating treatment:

  • You frequently change your clothes as they are soaked with sweat
  • You put absorbent material beneath your clothing to soak up excess sweat
  • You tend to avoid wearing certain types of clothing or fabrics
  • You have already sought treatment, and tried various clinical-strength antiperspirants without achieving a sufficient reduction in sweat production
  • Your body does not react well to powerful anti-perspirants
  • You avoid certain activities due to excessive sweating
  • You want to avoid undergoing a surgical procedure to treat excessive underarm sweating

Causes of Hyperhidrosis

Certain nerves within the body signal various areas to produce sweat. These nerves may be functioning incorrectly, causing the body to overreact and produce excessive quantities of sweat. While various conditions can contribute to hyperhidrosis, such as genetics, hormonal changes during menopause (hot flashes), and diabetes, whatever the underlying cause, the use of BOTOX can be an effective treatment.

Treating Hyperhidrosis with BOTOX

BOTOX injections have proven to be highly effective in our Ottawa hyperhidrosis treatment. The injections function by blocking the chemical in the body that triggers the action of sweat glands. The injection process requires skill to perform correctly. In the procedure, a very fine needle is used to inject small quantities of BOTOX beneath the skin in a grid pattern. The actual injections feel like a pinch, and any discomfort can be reduced with the use of a topical anesthetic cream, or the application of an ice pack prior to treatment.

BOTOX requires about one week to affect the targeted nerves. Once it has permeated the area, the sweat glands reduce the quantity of sweat produced. While this is a very effective treatment, the results fade over the months, and you will eventually need retreatment. The length of time between treatments can be up to 6-7 months and occasionally even longer.
