At the Aesthetic and Dermatology Center, we understand that excessive sweating can be embarrassing and that antiperspirants and deodorants may do little to ease the problem. When deodorants don’t work, one of the effective solutions we offer for our patients suffering from hyperhidrosis is Botox injections.
Across the world, over 180 million people suffer from a condition called hyperhidrosis, or excessive and abnormal sweating in their underarms and palms. Normally, when our body temperatures rise, our sweat glands activate to naturally cool us down. However, for those with hyperhidrosis, these nerves over-actively signal their sweat glands, leading to abnormal sweating.
What Is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic, or Botulinum toxin type A, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face. This solution works underneath the skin by relaxing the muscles that cause the skin to fold and wrinkle. Notably, our FAAD board-certified dermatologists are internationally recognized and award-winning expert injectors. Our patients know they are always in excellent hands during Botox treatment.
Although often used to treat wrinkles, Dr. Green and Dr. Walia also use Botox to target the areas of the body that sweat excessively due to overstimulated nerve endings. Botox relaxes these nerves, preventing them from signaling the sweat glands, thus not allowing a lot of sweating to occur.
Botox for Hyperhidrosis
The results of Botox for hyperhidrosis speak for themselves. Botox has shown an 84% decrease in sweating in the armpits and underarm area and up to a 90% decrease in sweating in the palms and soles! Patients see results within two to four days after treatment, with full effect within two weeks, and can last 6 months or more.

These injections can be completed in just one visit to our office with our expert injector – plus there is no downtime after your procedure!
