Is this type of treatment painful?

Most of our treatments are virtually painless but 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 4-12 months.

How does the treatment work?

Botox® acts by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter necessary in the sweating process. Diluted concentrations of the medication is injected by the dermatologist into the affected areas, working to deactivate overactive sweat glands. This is an effective treatment that may last 4-12 months, depending on which area is treated.

Is this type of treatment safe?

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.
