BotoxⓇ injections can help control sweating by preventing your body from releasing a chemical that triggers your sweat glands. Injections are administered in your underarms or even in the soles of your feet or the palms of your hands. Results can last for nearly a year, but it may take multiple injections to achieve optimal results.
This Hyperhidrosis treatment is painless and most patients do not require anesthesia. However, if desired by the patients, doctors can apply ice or anesthetic cream to the skin before the injections.
Certain medications can also help control excessive sweating. Some drugs work by preventing your sweat glands from activating, but they come with a risk of potentially serious side effects. Dr. Fatteh can help you decide if the benefits of drug therapy are worth the risks in the treatment for excessive sweating.
