Hyperhidrosis Awareness: How Botox Can Help

When it comes to medical conditions that disrupt everyday life, hyperhidrosis stands out. However, hope isn’t lost for those experiencing this treatable condition. Botox injections are a safe, FDA-approved, and accessible treatment for hyperhidrosis. Explore botox treatments offered by Skin Savvy to help you overcome excessive sweating and feel confident in your own skin! 

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating, is caused by overactive nerve signals that cause your sweat glands to produce more sweat than is needed to regulate your body temperature. This condition goes beyond sweating more when you’re exercising. It can occur when you’re resting, in colder temperatures, or at times when you least expect it. This condition can be localized to very specific areas of the body:

  • Palms of your hands
  • Soles of your feet
  • Armpits / Underarms
  • Face (forehead and cheeks)

Hyperhidrosis can also occur throughout your entire body. On the surface, this excessive moisture can lead to physical discomfort. However, the most damaging aspect of hyperhidrosis can be the emotional discomfort – which often complicates simple tasks and makes certain social interactions embarrassing.

Botox is an effective treatment that temporarily paralyzes muscles, and has been tested by the FDA to treat hyperhidrosis. This treatment targets sweat glands to regulate their function and stop excessive sweating

Benefits and Side Effects of Using Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Botox is a safe, effective, and proven technique. However, like with anything, there are some pros and cons you should be aware of before moving forward with the procedure. 


  • Reduce sweating in the infected area
  • Fast recovery
  • Non-invasive treatment with minimal discomfort
  • All other benefits of getting Botox

You’ll usually experience the benefits of Botox for months after the procedure. 

Potential Side Effects:

  • Headache
  • Hot flashes
  • Muscle weakness
  • Discomfort or swelling at the injection site

These effects are temporary and typically go away within a few days. If they last longer than a few weeks contact a healthcare professional.
