Botox® Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Toronto

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating. Sweating cools the body, which prevents us from overheating. People who have hyperhidrosis, however, sweat when the body does not need cooling. Many people who have hyperhidrosis sweat from one or two areas of the body. Most often, they sweat from their palms, feet, underarms, or head. 

Botox for hyperhidrosis treatment, the brand name for botulinum toxin, is an injectable medication that’s most well-known for its wrinkle-smoothing power. But it’s also great at stopping armpit sweat. It decreases underarm moisture by 82% to 87%. Dryness typically lasts between three to 12 months.

Body odour decreases, too. The funky smell from sweaty pits is made by bacteria that thrive in warm, moist places. Eliminate the moisture and the odour goes away as well.

How Does Botox Work For Hyperhidrosis?

Injecting Botox for hyperhidrosisinto a certain part of the body causes the blockage of Acetylcholine release. Acetyl Choline is a neurotransmitter which is responsible for the contraction of muscles and signalling of the sweat glands to produce sweat. By blocking this neurotransmitter, Botox targets the nerves which are over-actively causing sweat production and paralyses them. This paralyses excess sweat production in those parts of the body.

What Areas Of The Body Can Botox For Hyperhidrosis Be Used For?

To treat excessive sweating, a patient will need to have very tiny amounts of Botox ® injected in many areas of the underarms. When performed properly, patients have little pain or discomfort.

The Health Canada and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved this hyperhidrosis treatment for the underarms. The injections temporarily block a chemical in the body that stimulates the sweat glands. Most patients notice results 4 to 5 days after receiving treatment.

Reduced sweating lasts about 4 to 6 months — and sometimes longer. When the excessive sweating returns, you can retreat. If you are seeking an effective way to reduce hyperhidrosis, then Botox® is the ideal treatment for you.

How Effective Is Botox For Excessive Underarm Sweating?

Botox is considered highly effective for treating underarm sweating. Data shows that it has the ability to decrease underarm moisture by more than 80%. Unfortunately, the results of Botox for underarms do not target excessive sweating effectively, but it also works for underarm odour.

How Effective Is Botox For Excessive Palm Sweating?

Similar to Hyperhidrosis of the underarms, Botox is also found to be effective for excessive palm sweating. This is backed up by studies which show a reduction of palmar sweating by 25 to 50% after a period of 3 weeks to 6 months after the treatment.

How Do I Prepare For The Botox For Hyperhidrosis Treatment?

Botox for hyperhidrosis treatment is considered a simple procedure and does not require excessive amounts of preoperative preparations. Before the procedure, the doctor may start by evaluating the individual’s medical history and health status. Once the patient is approved for the procedure, they will be asked to stop taking any blood thinners at least 2 to 3 days before the procedure. This will lower the risk of bleeding during the procedure and bruising after the procedure. They may also be asked to shave their armpits in the case of Hyperhydrosis of the underarms.

What Is It Like To Get Botox For Hyperhidrosis?

The average procedure of Botox for Hyperhidrosis lasts for 45 minutes. However, the part of the procedure that involves injecting Botox into the skin only takes between 20 to 30 minutes. This may be more or less depending on the part of the body which is being targeted. The procedure starts with the doctor marking all the points that require a Botox injection. This marking may be done with ink, which can be easily removed after the procedure. Next, botox injections are injected using fine needles; on average, a patient may be given between 15 to 20 injections. The number of injections also depends on the doctor and their experience. Once the procedure is completed, the patient can go home and continue their everyday activities.

How Soon Can I See The Results Of Botox For Hyperhidrosis?

The results of the Botox for hyperhidrosis treatment may become apparent as soon as two days after the procedure. However, for some patients, it may also take four days for them to notice their results. However, the full effect of the Botox injection requires at least two weeks.

Enhance, renew, and restore your natural beauty.

What Can I Expect After The Hyperhidrosis Treatment?

You should be able to go home immediately after your procedure. Generally, little aftercare is needed. However, you may feel tender around the treated area the next day. Your doctor will likely want you to follow up about two weeks after your appointment once the Botox takes full effect. You may need an additional procedure to treat any missed spots. Doctors often recommend avoiding deodorant or products with perfume under your arms for about 12 to 24 hours to avoid irritation. Avoiding intense exercise and hot baths for 1 to 2 days may also help.

Is Getting Botox For Hyperhidrosis Safe?

The FDA and Health Canada has approved Botox injections for Hyperhidrosis of the underarms due to their high safety profile and low risk of side effects. Some individuals worry that Botox injections for Hyperhidrosis may prevent the body from cooling down as sweating allows heat release. However, this is not the case, as each area that may be treated with Botox injections usually only contain less than 2% of the body’s sweat glands.

What Are The Benefits Of Getting Botox For Hyperhidrosis?

There are many benefits of opting for Botox for underarm sweating compared to other more invasive methods. These include:

  • The high affectivity rate of Botox injections. Data shows Botox injections to be effective in more than 80% of the individuals who opt for this procedure.
  • The Non-invasive nature of the treatment is associated with lower risks and short recovery time.
  • It is a short procedure, so it does not require the individual to lose an entire day of work.
  • It is considered highly safe and approved by the FDA and IHHS.

How Long Do The Results Of Botox For Hyperhidrosis Last?

The results of Botox For Hyperhidrosis last between 4 months and one year. However, it may last for up to 14 months in some individuals. The longevity of the results may vary from individual to individual based on the area of the body that was treated. For example, the results of Botox are found to last longer for the underarms, as compared to the hand and feet. Individuals should get booster injections 7 to 16 months after the initial procedure.
