About the Treatment
- How is this treatment performed?
BOTOX® acts by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter necessary in the sweating process. Diluted concentrations of the medication are injected by the dermatologist into the affected areas, working to deactivate overactive sweat glands.
- What are the benefits of this procedure?
Treating hyperhidrosis can reduce the amount you sweat to manageable levels, helping you live a normal life.
- Is this type of treatment painful?
Depending on the person, there may be some discomfort around the target area. Since these treatments use injections, there is a higher chance of discomfort compared to non-invasive procedures. However, we are committed to making this process as comfortable as it can be.
- How long will the results last?
Because everyone is unique and each body reacts to treatment differently, results will vary. Treatment of excessive sweating with the use of BOTOX® usually lasts between four to 12 months
- Is this type of treatment safe?
Yes, our experienced team of physicians and care providers are here to make sure everything goes smoothly. We will work with you to design a custom treatment plan that will safely and effectively improve your excessive sweating condition. All of our treatments have been tested to ensure the safety of our patients.
While some patients feel some chest discomfort for one to three days after the procedure, most return to their normal activities after around a week.
During a consultation for hyperhidrosis treatment, Dr. Pirani will spend approximately 30 minutes discussing the treatment, after which he will create a custom treatment plan that addresses all of your concerns and goals. He will go over risks and possible complications and give you an idea of what you should expect in terms of results and recovery.
