Do you sweat a lot? We’re not talking like sweating while you exercise, or sweating because you’re hot. We’re talking unexpectedly breaking into crazy sweats that can make your palms super wet, or soak through your clothes for no reason. If this sounds like you, you may have hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. This condition can be super stressful and anxiety inducing, especially if it happens in social situations. At MDBC we can help treat your hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating) Treatment In a Nutshell

What is it?

Hyperhidrosis treatment works to treat and regulate overactive sweat glands, in order to avoid excessive sweating episodes. The type of treatment will depend on your case and on the type of hyperhidrosis condition that you have.

Who is it for?

Anyone looking to:

  • treat excessive sweating on any area of the body

How It Works

There are two types of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating conditions, essential or primary focal hyperhidrosis and secondary hyperhidrosis. The way in which hyperhidrosis is treated is dependent on the type of hyperhidrosis that you have. 

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

Essential or primary focal hyperhidrosis is when the nerves that control your sweat glands become overactive causing you to sweat excessively even though you’re not exercising or necessarily hot. This kind of sweating can be triggered by a variety of factors, such as stress, or can be exacerbated by exercise or being hot, and can occur randomly or unexpectedly, and often enough that it is affecting your quality of life. 

There are a variety of ways that you can treat this type of hyperhidrosis, such as with prescription anti-perspirants and other medications. At MDBC we have found botulinum toxin (Botox or Myobloc) injections to be very effective for this type of hyperhidrosis.

Secondary hyperhidrosis is typically caused by an underlying health condition like thyroid problems, menopause, diabetes, or even certain types of infections. With this type of hyperhidrosis, usually when the underlying health condition is diagnosed and treated the hyperhidrosis will stop. 

When you come in for a complimentary consultation with one of our doctors, they’ll have a better idea of what type of hyperhidrosis you have and what kind of treatment plan will best address your needs.

The Procedure

If you have essential or primary focal hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), we will treat it with Botox or Myobloc injections. Botulinum toxin will temporarily block the nerves that regulate your sweat glands and keep them from unnecessarily producing excessive sweat.

The treatment takes about 15-30 minutes depending on what area you’re having treated, and is straightforward and painless. There is no downtime. Your provider will administer a local anesthetic and then proceed to inject the area in question with botulinum toxin.  

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) Treatment for you?

Hyperhidrosis treatment via botulinum toxin injections is great for anyone who is suffering from essential or primary focal excessive sweating, and who has no allergies, infections or underlying medical conditions that might interfere with or have adverse effects when combined with nerve-blocking medications such as Botox or Myobloc.

Who should not have Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) Treatment?

You should not have hyperhidrosis treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you are allergic to onabotulinum toxin A or any of the ingredients in Botox or Myobloc, or if you are allergic to lidocaine.

You should also avoid hyperhidrosis treatment via botulinum toxin if you have an infection in or around the treatment area, or if you have weak muscles in the areas being treated.

When can I expect to see results?

Depending on the area you had treated, result times can vary, however, you should see early results of your hyperhidrosis treatment 2-4 days following your Botox injections, and you’ll see the full effects of the treatment within approximately two weeks.

Will I need more than one treatment?

Your hyperhidrosis treatment should last between 6-12 months, after that you’ll need to come in for a subsequent treatment. At the beginning you may need to retreat the area in question at shorter intervals, within 4-6 months, after that you’ll be able to leave longer intervals between your treatments.

How much does it cost?

The cost of hyperhidrosis treatment depends on how severe your excessive sweating is and how many injections you might need and whether you will need them on multiple areas of the body. We’ll be able to give you a firm quote once you’ve met with one of our doctors.
