Sweating is unpleasant and embarrassing, which is why many individuals avoid seeking help. Treatments for hyperhidrosis (such as antiperspirants and high-tech therapies) give you options but often leave you moist at best. Botox, which is most well known for addressing cosmetic wrinkles, is also an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis. Learn how you can take back control of your life with Botox by consulting with Miami’s double board-certified Dr. Jeremy White at ARC Plastic Surgery.
Hyperhidrosis is an excessively high level of sweating that is not caused by heat or activity. It's possible that you'll sweat so much that it seeps through your clothes or drops off your hands. This form of profuse perspiration can induce social anxiety and humiliation and disrupt typical everyday activities. Botox injections inhibit the nerve signals that cause sweating, preventing the sweat glands from producing excessive perspiration, giving you dryer skin and more confidence in your everyday life.
Botox for hyperhidrosis is a non-invasive alternative to some surgical options. Often hyperhidrosis can affect the hands, feet, underarms, and head. Botox can be used in more than one area of the body giving you simultaneous relief. Most importantly, it will restore your confidence. Dr. White makes it his mission to restore confidence and self-esteem more than anything else. Using Botox to eliminate excessive sweating frees you to enjoy your social activities without wondering if you are leaving stains on your shirt.
Good candidates for hyperhidrosis treatment are those with moderate to severe sweating in the armpit, hands, feet, or face, and prescription antiperspirants haven’t given you the confident results that you were hoping for. If you’ve tried everything and want to take back control of your life, schedule a consultation in Miami with ARC Plastic Surgery.
Dr. White may use ice or a local anesthetic to numb the area before injecting the skin. This will assist in the relief of any pain or discomfort. Botox is then injected into the skin in very small amounts. In most cases, they inject it in a grid pattern, with injection sites spaced one to two cm apart.
After treatment, you can go home right away. While you may experience discomfort, slight swelling, and redness at the injection site, these adverse effects typically fade within minutes or hours. You should refrain from exercising and refrain from taking hot baths or showers for the remainder of the day. Dr. White may recommend a follow-up appointment one to two weeks after the surgery. This is to check for adverse effects and touch up any places that were missed. There may be a need to have regular appointments to touch up areas to achieve maximum results.
Botox has been demonstrated to reduce sweat by 82-87 percent when treating excessive sweating under the arms. The results begin to show up two to four days after treatment, with the full effects usually appearing within two weeks. The effects generally last four–twelve months, but they can persist up to fourteen months in some circumstances.

The majority of patients only suffer minor adverse effects from their treatment, such as discomfort, minor swelling, and redness at the injection site. These negative effects normally fade within minutes or hours. While not common, some patients may have these adverse effects for a day or two and bruising at one or more injection sites.
Price will vary depending on the areas and extent of your hyperhidrosis. You can discuss costs and any financing options during your consultation.
