Did you know Botox injections can be used for the treatment of excessive sweating?

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can be a problem for many men and women. At Current Dermatology and Cosmetic Center in Annapolis, Maryland, Drs. Molly Walterhoefer and Megan Casady Flahive can assist patients who find it challenging to manage localized sweating with over-the-counter or prescription antiperspirants. Instead, they may want to consider Botox injections as an excessive sweating treatment option for their needs.

What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. For most patients, sweating of the underarms becomes severe and cannot be managed with deodorants and antiperspirants. While there are some prescription antiperspirants that can reduce sweating, sometimes patients want a more long-term solution that doesn’t require medications. In situations like this, our team may suggest the benefits of Botox injections for treating hyperhidrosis.

Why might patients consider Botox for excessive sweating?

If you experience significant sweating even after using more powerful antiperspirants, it may be time to talk to a professional about the benefits of Botox injections. Botox is a neuromodulator that is often associated with cosmetic facial treatments. While Botox is most commonly used for aesthetics, treating forehead folds, wrinkles between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet, it also has other medical applications. Botox is known for providing effective treatment for over-sweating in localized areas such as the underarms, palms, and soles. Botox is injected into the area to reduce sweating for several months before reinjection is needed.
