Treat excessive sweating with Botox.

Although sweating is normal, studies show 1-5% of the population suffers from excessive sweating—under the arms, on the hands, and feet, or on the forehead.  If you have sweating that causes you social or professional awkwardness, have to change shirts or socks multiple times a day, or if you are just someone who is sensitive to deodorant and antiperspirants, you may be a candidate for Botox treatment for excessive sweating.

Medically known as hyperhidrosis—Botox for hyperhidrosis has a very high satisfaction rate and results typically last 7-9 months to significantly decrease or inhibit sweat and odor in the treated areas.  Our patients at The Derm Institute range from students to those who frequently engage in public speaking—if you struggle with worrying about sweat stains or odor, ask Dr. Chiu about this treatment.  It is simple, fast, and with a bit of topical numbing, painless.

Most commonly treated areas include:

  • Underarms
  • Palms
  • Scalps and foreheads
  • Soles

This treatment is simple, fast, and with a bit of topical numbing, painless.

Common Questions…

Who is a candidate?

Anyone who struggles with sweat or odor can be a potential candidate for treatment with Botox for sweating.  If you find dress shirts being ruined, or feeling self conscious about sweaty palms, or simply do not find deodorant and antiperspirants effective—Botox for hyperhidrosis is an incredibly easy, effective, and pain-free treatment.

Is it dangerous?

Botox for hyperhidrosis has been studied by the FDA and is approved for this use under the arms.  Excessive sweating (like excessive oil production) is a nuisance, not a necessity for the body.  It does not stop sweating all over the body—the treatment only eliminates or significantly reduces sweating in problem areas.

How long do the effects last?

Our patients experience reduced sweating for 7-12 months.  We recommend twice a year treatment as maintenance if you want to remain full results.

How long does the treatment take? Is it painful?

Botox for sweating, or hyperhidrosis is a quick and simple treatment requiring about 15 minutes only.  Topical numbing is used to minimize the treatment to virtually pain free.
