Botox or Dysport for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) San Francisco

Published on June 6, 2018

Dealing with excessive sweating can be embarrassing, and when oral and topical treatment options fail, many people feel that their excessive sweating is just something they will have to live with. Today there is an alternative treatment option through Botox or Dysport. While many people know of Botox or Dysport for their cosmetic anti-wrinkle achievements, Botox or Dysport can also be used to treat excessive underarm and palm sweating.

Botox prevents excessive sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals that get released when nerves stimulate the sweat glands. Following the procedure, patients can notice relief from excessive sweating within days and the results can last 6 months to a year. If you are ready to live a more confident, sweat-free life, and want to discuss if Botox for Excessive Sweating may be right for you, the first step is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Chiu-Collins.
