Hyperhidrosis, a disorder of excessive or uncontrolled sweating, is caused when the central nervous system over-stimulates the endocrine glands (sweat glands) and causes them to produce more sweat than necessary to cool the body. Thankfully, it can be successfully treated by the team at ArtMed with injections of neuromodulators, like BOTOX Therapeutic®.
How does the Hyperhidrosis treatment work?
The BOTOX THERAPEUTIC® injections work by blocking the chemical signal from the nerve to the sweat gland, stopping that area from sweating.
Will it be uncomfortable?
There is little to no discomfort, however this varies from patient to patient. There is a topical numbing cream applied to the area the doctor and nurse will discuss your options to properly manage any discomfort from the treatment. There will be no post-treatment discomfort.
What will happen during the procedure?
The treatment involves injections of Botox® with very fine needles in the area; results are noticeable in one to two weeks.
What should I expect after treatment?
Results are noticeable in one to two weeks and can last up to six months or more.
How much can I expect it to cost?
Treatment cost varies patient to patient depending on the size of the area being treated, and the degree of patient relief being sought. Treatments are often covered by third party insurance companies.If you wish to learn more about Hyperhidrosis Treatments, please visit www.sweatmanagement.ca
