Many individuals are plagued with constant worry about their excessive sweating, especially in social situations. It can be very embarrassing to have constantly sweaty palms or to have to worry about the kind of shirt to wear that will conceal underarm sweat. Fortunately, Botox® can be used to help those who are affected by excessive sweating, which is also known as “hyperhidrosis.” A small needle is used to inject Botox® into the area of concern which includes the palms, underarms and feet. Botox® weakens the signal between the brain and the sweat glands, which results in an overall reduction in the amount of sweat being produced. For many of these reasons, this treatment can also often be covered by personal insurance.
To find out if Botox® hyperhidrosis treatment is right for you, please contact our knowledgeable staff at our Oakville office, between Hamilton and Toronto, Ontario for your complimentary consultation. Dr. Sheetal Sapra and our nursing staff will be able to provide you with all of the information you need to make the most informed decision.
