BOTOX® is a prescription medicine that is injected for the treatment of severe primary axillary, palmar or plantar hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the underarms, palms or feet) in patients unable to obtain relief using antiperspirants. The treatment targets sweat glands that contribute to hyperidrosis by being overactive. It is performed as an office procedure and is well tolerated.
- Helps alleviate hyperidrosis in different body areas
All patients with severe hyperidrosis, non responsive to medication or other treatments, may consider Botox injections. Patients who have high blood pressure that is not under control, have blood disorders or take blood thinners, such as Aspirin, Coumadin or Plavix, may experience higher risk of bruising.
Most patients tolerate the procedure well in an office setting. Some bruising may occur which resolves over few days. Strenuous exercises and lifting heavy objects should be avoided for 8 hours. Makeup can be applied the same day. Repeat treatments are needed every few months to maintain results.
