What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is the clinical term for excessive sweating. This condition is very common and may affect the whole body, or it may only affect certain areas. The most commonly affected areas include the underarm area and the palms of your hands
Botox for Hyperhidrosis: Does it Really Work?
When Botox, or any neuromodulation, is placed near the sweat glands it signals for them to stop producing sweat. It can take up to two weeks for Botox to metabolize in the body and for you to see the full results of your treatment. That being said, once you start to see the results, they are dramatic.
On average, there is over an 80% decrease in sweat production in the treated area that can last around 7 months. Nearly a third of patients reported being able to go 1 year before needing to return for more treatment.
What does that mean for you?
If you come in to get treated with Botox for Hyperhidrosis, you don’t have to come in constantly for treatments! Realistically, you can get treated once or twice a year. If you have questions about needing retreatment with Botox for Hyperhidrosis, be sure to ask your injector during your consultation!
What Does Botox for Hyperhidrosis Cost?
If you’ve been diagnosed with Hyperhidrosis, many health coverage providers will cover a portion of the treatment. We always recommend contacting your health coverage provider to see what kind of coverage you have, and what documentation you may need to use your coverage.
Most people require 50 units of Botox in each underarm (100 units total)to stop sweating excessively. Botox is typically sold per unit for roughly $12-$15 per unit, which would put your cost around $1200-$1500. Coupled with injection fees — usually, another $100-$200 the total cost of Botox for Hyperhidrosis is typically around $1,500–$2,000 per session.

Does Botox for Hyperhidrosis hurt?
Before your Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis, a topical numbing agent is typically applied to minimize discomfort during treatment.
The appointment will take about an hour. That includes the doctor marking in the injection site, giving you something to help diminish any discomfort, and doing the injections.
After your treatment, you can return to your daily activities. No downtime necessary! The injector will most likely schedule you for a follow-up a few weeks after treatment to see your results and add any needed touch-ups.
