Botox For Excessive Sweating and Headaches
In addition to cosmetic use for facial lines, dermatologists can use Botox to treat Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), male or female, in the hands, feet or underarms.
The treatment works to temporarily block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive the chemical signals, the production of excessive sweat stops in that specific area. Clinical studies have shown that 81% of patients treated achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating. In studies, the median duration of the treatment was 201 days or 6.7 months. Symptoms will gradually return as Botox is not a cure, and additional injections would be required to experience improvement.
To find out if topic treatments or even non-surgical procedures such as Miradry are right for addressing your Hyperhidrosis, schedule a free consultation with our experienced Wilmington, NC staff.
