Botox For Hyperhidrosis Reviews
Botox works great for hyperhidrosis but there is also a permanent fix.
Botox works just great for hyperhidrosis. I have been getting Botox injections to my axilla for over 10 years and I have many hyperhidrosis patients that come in for injections.
Usually, the first few injections last about 6 months but then they seem to last longer and longer. I get injected about one a year.
Botox for axillary hyperhidrosis has been FDA approved since 2004 but I was using Botox “off lable” way before then.
There is a permanent option called subcutaneous removal of axillary sweat glands.
I’ve been performing this procedure for a couple of years and patient satisfaction is very high. I make a couple on short incisions in the underarm area and carefully scrape the glands off the undersurface of the skin.
Patients have small drainage tubes for 5 – 7 days and most patients take one week off of work. The effect is immediate. The cost of this is less than 2 or 3 Botox injections. . (Don’t call me Sweaty Betty anymore!). (Lisa Lynn Sowder, MD, Seattle Plastic Surgeon)
I find Botox very successful in treating hyperhidrossis-excessive sweating. It has been FDA approved and usually patients need about 100 units, 50 on each side to see results. The treatment on the average should be repeated after 8-12 months, depends on the individual.

Botox can be life changing for patients who are constantly “pitting out” their shirts. I apply a little numbing cream to the armpit area and the injections are done in a matter of minutes. I know the results are good because the patients all come back for more when it wears off in roughly 6 months.
Much safer than surgery in my opinion. (Daniel J. Ladd Jr., DO, Austin Dermatologist)
