BOTOX® for Hyperhydrosis

Hyperhydrosis means excessive sweating; sweating too much.  Excessive sweating is normally localised cases in the hands feet or armpits.  Excessive sweating tends to start during a person’s teenage years – their adolescence. 

BOTOX® provides an effective treatment for Hyperhydrosis.

How does BOTOX® work

BOTOX® injections temporarily block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the production of excessive sweat stops in the treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere.

Where does the sweat go?

Your sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up, because the sweat simply isn’t produced in the areas treated with BOTOX®. Remember, the rest of your body is free to release moisture normally. And if you were to stop BOTOX® treatment, the sweating function would return to normal.

How effective is BOTOX® treatment?

57 out of 104 patients treated with BOTOX® (55%) achieved an effective response, compared to only 6 out of 108 treated without BOTOX® (6%). “Effective response” is defined as an improvement of at least 2 grades on the Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale (HDSS)

84 out of 104 patients treated with BOTOX® (81%) achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating, compared to only 44 out of 108 treated without BOTOX® (41%)

How long does a BOTOX® treatment last?

In a clinical study, the median duration of response in BOTOX ® patients was 201 days or 6.7 months. (This means that half the patients had a treatment duration of at least 201 days or 6.7 months.) BOTOX ® injections are not a cure—your symptoms will gradually return and you will know when the time is right for another treatment. Your Doctor will recommend a treatment strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible results with BOTOX ® treatment.
