Botox Hyperhidrosis (Botox for Sweating)

Reston Virginia Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgery and Wellness Center

Botox is FDA-approved for severe underarm sweating when topical agents don't work. Botox treatment helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.  When the sweat glands don't receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. At Wellmedica we do Botox Hyperhidrosis which helps in reducing excessive sweating. Botox hyperhidrosis is also referred as botox for sweating.

What can I expect during treatment?

The procedure is a simple one. Dr. Ali uses an ultra fine needle to precisely inject small amounts of Botox into the affected underarm areas. Discomfort is minimal and brief. No sedation or local anesthetic is required and you may resume your normal day’s activities right away.

What should I expect after I have received Botox for sweating?

You should notice a reduction in underarm sweating within 4 weeks of your first treatment.

How long does BOTOX last?

Botox in this area can last up to 6 months. After this time your symptoms will return gradually, and your will know it's time for another treatment. Dr. Ali will decide on a treatment strategy specifically for you, so that you receive the best possible results.

What happens if I decide to stop treatment?

If you decide not to have further treatment there will be no lasting change in the treated areas. The effects of Botox treatment will gradually wear off, and your underarm sweating will resume.
