Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive sweating that goes beyond what is necessary to regulate body temperature. It can be bothersome and affect your daily life. Fortunately, Botox injections can be an effective and safe treatment option for hyperhidrosis.
When using toxin to treat hyperhidrosis, your medical aesthetics practitioner will carefully inject small amounts of toxin into the affected area, typically areas where excessive sweating occurs, such as the underarms, palms of the hands, or soles of the feet.
After the treatment, you may start noticing a reduction in sweating within a few days, but it may take up to two weeks to experience the full effect of the toxin treatment. The results typically last for a few months, but they are not permanent. As the effects wear off, you are likely to require maintenance treatments to maintain the desired level of sweat reduction.
It’s important to note that toxin treatment for hyperhidrosis is generally well-tolerated, and serious side effects are rare. However, you may experience some temporary side effects at the injection sites, such as redness, swelling, or minor bruising. These effects typically resolve on their own within a few days.

Botox works by temporarily blocking the signals that stimulate the sweat glands, which helps reduce the amount of sweat produced in those areas. By inhibiting these signals, toxin can provide relief from excessive sweating and help you feel more comfortable in social and professional situations.
The procedure itself is relatively quick and straightforward. Your healthcare professional will use a very fine needle to inject Botox just beneath the surface of your skin. Although you may feel a slight pinch or stinging sensation during the injections, any discomfort is usually minimal.
