Do you struggle with sweat? Does the slightest amount of heat make you wonder if you need more deodorant, or make you feel like showering and changing clothes? Sweating may not be a harmful condition, but it can be an extreme inconvenience in many ways. Believe it or not, there is something that may help: Botox.

It may seem odd if you have never heard of this treatment, but it is true. If you suffer from excessive sweating, you might be able to try Botox injections if prescription strength deodorants, body powders, and changing clothes are not effective.

Preventing Excessive Sweating with Botox

Botox can be used to curb sweating in the underarm area via an injection. Most people find the injection mild or relatively painless. To assist with comfort, a topical anesthetic to numb the area can be administered. Treatments usually last a few months and can significantly reduce sweating. In many cases, Botox for hyperhidrosis is covered under insurance.

It’s important to discuss the procedure with your chosen physician, and make sure that you are not choosing simply for the lowest price. At Inverness Dermatology & Laser, we work with you and your insurance provider to find out how you can afford the treatment you need. We also offer financing options.
