Botox For Excessive Sweating FAQ

Botox has therapeutic as well as cosmetic applications. Botox is routinely used to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis is defined as severe or excessive sweating that normally occurs under the arms or on the palms. Botox for hyperhidrosis is available at all OVME locations.  If you’re considering Botox for excessive sweating, please review following frequently asked questions about the procedure:

How Does Botox Treat Excessive Sweating?

Botox works by blocking nerve impulses that stimulate eccrine gland production. Botox prevents these glands from producing sweat. Treatment effects last about seven months before repeat administration is required.

Where Is Botox Administered?

Typical areas of treatment are the underarms, hands, or feet.

How Soon Will I Feel The Effects?

Effects of Botox for excessive sweating are usually noticeable within the first week following treatment.

How Effective Is Botox In Treating Hyperhidrosis?

Botox has shown to cut excessive sweating in half in 95% of patients.

How Do I Know If I’m A Candidate?

An OVME Certified Provider will determine if Botox for excessive sweating is right for you. However, it is not recommended for pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, and those with muscle or nerve disorders. It is also considered unsuitable for anyone on muscle or nerve-related medication, and for people with neuromuscular disease, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, or Myasthenia Gravis.

Is The Procedure Painful?

Botox injections don’t cause severe pain, however many doctors provide anesthetic creams containing lidocaine to make the session more comfortable. Discuss your sweating issues with the experienced Atlanta Providers at OVME to see if Botox is right for your needs.
