Botox for Hyperhidrosis by Expert Injector Dr. Rayhaan Dawood MD CCFP. Only at The Premier Cosmetic Clinic & Medical Spa of the Kitchener Waterloo Region.
Botox for Hyperhidrosis – Health Canada and FDA Approved
Botox is an approved therapy for the primary treatment of hyperhidrosis, commonly known as excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that affects many Canadians. At the Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic we have treated many patients in the Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph region for this debilitating condition. The most common areas are the underarms/armpits, hands and feet, but you can suffer from excess sweating on any part of the body including the scalp and face.
The cause of excess sweating is not completely known. But the medical community believes it may be caused by an abnormally functioning nervous system. And it can also be affected by exercise, spicy foods, and stressful situations.
Many patients come to us after suffering for years with hyperhidrosis, and have already exhausted traditional over the counter or prescription based antiperspirants.
How does Botox Work?
Botox is an approved treatment for primary hyperhidrosis by both Health Canada and the FDA. By injecting small amounts of botox into the underarms, palms, soles, or scalp and forehead we can help control excess sweat production. Research shows this is a safe and effective way of controlling hyperhidrosis. Studies show an 82-87% decrease in sweating, with results appearing in 2-4 days after injections, and lasting up to 4-6 months.
Botox blocks the signals produced by sweat glands to reduce excess production.
Treatments are performed by Dr. Rayhaan Dawood after an initial consultation. The actual procedure is very safe and straightforward, and will take less than an hour. A very fine needle is used to inject small amounts of Botox into the treatment area. After treatment you should notice a reduction in the amount of sweat produced within a month, and results may last up to 6 months. Treatment is not a cure, but is a way to manage this disabling condition. After your treatment has worn off a repeat treatment will be needed.
Treatment Areas with Botox
The underarms are the most commonly injected area for hyperhidrosis. But Botox can also be used for the palms, feet, scalp and forehead for excessive sweating.
Best Botox Injection Results:
Treatment should last for four to six months, and fades slowly. Some patient’s metabolize Botox faster, and some slower. Repeat treatments are required for sweat production to remain suppressed. Botox treatments are not a cure, but are a way to manage this debilitating condition.
Any Downtime with Botox?
There is minimal downtime day of and after treatment with minor swelling. Most patients notice results in 2-4 days, with full effect by 2 weeks.
How many units of Botox do I need? What is the cost of the procedure?
It is impossible to say without having a Botox Expert perform an in person assessment. We encourage anyone interested and ready for treatment to book an appointment with our office. We do charge an injection fee for the doctor’s time, please call our office to inquire. Often the cost of the Botox itself will be covered in part by third party medical insurance. If not your credit card will also be billed for the cost of the Botox medication.
Who is Botox for?
Anyone! Botox is great for both men and women who suffer from excessive sweating.
