Put an end to Excessive Sweating

Put an end to Excessive Sweating Main Image

Excessive sweating known in the medical field as Hyperhidrosis can cause people stress and embarrassment when antiperspirants don’t work and clothing can’t hide it, but you don’t have to suffer in silence. Here at Snowberry Lane Clinic we offer Botox to reduce excessive underarm sweating.

How does it work?

The treatment works by blocking the nerves that stimulate your overactive sweat glands. Botox injections would be delivered directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, preventing your nerves from triggering your sweat glands thus reducing the amount that you sweat. However, Botox only prevents sweating in the specific area where it’s injected.

What can I expect during the treatment?

The practitioner will inject the Botox just below the surface of the skin using a very fine needle in a grid pattern around your area of concern. You can return to your daily routine straight away with no down time. In some cases a follow-up appointment is required to check in and touch up any missed areas.

What can I expect after the treatment?

Botox is a highly effective treatment for excessive sweating. For many people, it drastically improves their quality of life. It commonly takes up to 1-2 weeks for the treatment to take effect and reduce sweating in the treated area. Botox is a temporary treatment, meaning you’ll need to maintain the effects of treatment every 4-14 months
