If you suffer from Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, you don’t have to hide this anymore. There is hope. BOTOX in the Treatment of Hyperhidrosis.
Botox is covered by most Insurance companies and approved by Health Canada !
BOTOX works by blocking the chemical signal from the nerve to the target tissue, which in the case of hyperhidrosis is the sweat gland. As the sweat gland is no longer stimulated by the overactive nerve, the sweating stops. Since the drug only works in the area where it is injected, sweat glands in other parts of the body function normally. There is no risk of getting overheated.
BOTOX is highly effective. In a clinical study that involved 240 patients with excessive underarm sweating, 95% of patients responded to the treatment, with an average reduction in sweating of 83% in 1 week. The effect is also long-lasting. On average, each treatment will effectively reduce sweating for 7 months.
BOTOX is very safe. For the treatment of excessive underarm sweating, the only drug-related side effect is a perceived increase in sweating in other parts of the body, which happens in only 4.5% of patients.
