BOTOX® Hyperhidrosis Treatment Benefits
There are many benefits to using this purified protein for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
- No more sweating in the treated area for 4 to 18 months
- The cost of the BOTOX® is usually covered under Extended Health Medical Benefit programs
BOTOX Therapeutic can also be used to help many people experience blissful breaks from migraine and tension headaches.
How BOTOX® Works for Hyperhidrosis
The procedure is fairly simple. A small volume of BOTOX® is injected into the affected area through a very fine needle. The needle is placed just under the skin. You will receive multiple injections based on your doctor’s assessment of the area and condition to be treated.
What to Expect
Treatment times range between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the area being treated. You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within one week of your first treatment. The duration of a “sweat-free interval” increases by using higher doses of BOTOX®. Studies have shown an absence of sweating ranges between 4 months and 18 months.
BOTOX® Therapeutic is covered by most private insurance plans. If the cost of your BOTOX® is covered by your plan, we will only charge you an injection fee. Please call the clinic for a consultation – individuals with hyperhidrosis find their new sweat-free status literally unbelievable!
