BOTOX® for Hyperhidrosis 2017-07-31T10:46:28+00:00

BOTOX® Therapeutic has been used to address Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) for over 20 years with great success.


  • Safe with no downtime
  • Excessive sweating relief into the treated area for 4-12 months
  • The cost of the BOTOX® is often covered under many Extended Health Medical Benefit programs

How it works

Small amounts of BOTOX® are injected in the affected area. This solution prevents specific neurons from firing which in turn temporarily blocks chemicals that activate the sweat glands.

What to expect

Your visit to Vancouver Laser for this treatment can take up to 40 minutes. No comfort measures are required.


Most patients notice a reduction of excessive sweating in the treated area starting around one week after treatment. The longevity of the results are correlated to the intensity of the sweating and the amount of BOTOX® used to address the condition.

Recommended sessions

Most patients repeat their treatment for this condition every 6 – 9 months.

Possible downtime

  • None

Post treatment care

  • Resume normal skin care activities immediately post treatment
