Neuromodulator Injections for Hyperhidrosis
Excess sweating of the palms, face, and underarms can severely limit social interactions and work. Botox, Dysport or Xeomin injection is an extremely effective procedure, often described as turning off a faucet of sweating. The injections are performed in a simple 10-20 minute outpatient session, with a tiny needle.
The effects of Botox, Dysport or Xeomin injections begin to be apparent two to three days after the injection session, and last, on average six months. Repeat injection sessions are performed as the initial effect begins to dissipate. Side effects are minimal to non-existent, and include minor bruising and occasional short-term, very mild hand weakness (when the palms are treated). Driving and normal activities are generally not affected, and the weakness resolves within two to four weeks.
