It’s freezing cold outside, but the armpits of your shirt are soaked. You’ve tried every antiperspirant imaginable, but nothing seems to work. But here’s a solution for you. Nulook Medspa in Toronto offers Botox (botulinum toxin type A) treatment for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating.

Botox Use For Medical Conditions
Botox is best known as a cosmetic treatment to reduce or remove fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. The injections are among the most used cosmetic procedures in the world. Botox relaxes the muscles around the injection site. A treatment usually lasts from three to six months.

Botox can do more than create a wrinkle-free face. It can also treat some medical conditions. At Nulook Medspa in Toronto, our specialists use Botox for severe headaches, migraines, movement disorders, and excessive sweating. Botox in Toronto and around the world has been available for more than 10 years. More than one million patients with a variety of conditions have received treatments.

Botox Hyperhidrosis Treatment
Hyperhidrosis or severe sweating is usually not related to exercise or heat. Episodes can occur once a week or more often and affect both sides of the body.

While it’s usually just annoying and embarrassing, the Mayo Clinic website, a nonprofit American academic medical center, says hyperhidrosis can be a sign of a serious illness. Among them are diabetes, low blood sugar, thyroid disease, heart attacks, and some kinds of cancer.

Nulook Medspa uses Allergan Botox, which is made in California. It’s the most studied brand of botox in the world. For hyperhidrosis, our doctors and nurse practitioners use a fine needle to inject small amounts of botox near the sweat glands that are causing excessive perspiration. It temporarily blocks the nervous system from secreting the chemical that activates the sweat glands.

Although it’s not a cure, one treatment can stop excessive sweating for 7-16 months. Then follow-up injections will be needed to maintain the effect.

While it’s just temporary, botox has been found to be an effective treatment for treating the armpits, hands, and feet for excessive sweating. One clinical study showed that of 322 people with severe underarm sweating, 81 percent who received botox injections experienced a greater than 50 percent reduction in sweating. It relieved excessive sweating for nearly seven months in 50 percent of the patients.
