Sweating is a natural phenomenon necessary for the regulation of an individual's body temperature. In some people (approximately 1% of the population), this system is working at a very high activity level, far higher than needed to keep a constant temperature. This condition is referred to as hyperhidrosis.
Injections of Botox® are the only truly effective non-surgical treatment available. Botox® blocks the release of the chemical responsible for stimulating the sweat glands - acetylcholine.
Botox is injected directly into the affected area and is a practically painless procedure. Common areas treated are underarms, palms of hands and the soles of feet.
Most insurance companies view this as a medically necessary treatment and cover the cost of your Botox® for underarm hyperhidrosis.
You can expect a decrease of underarm sweating within 48 hours of the treatment. The result last from 4-7 months.
Dr. Donna Jubin is the primary injector for Botox® in Saskatoon and Saskatchewan.
Most patients that receive Botox® treatments for excessive sweating follow up and comment they wish they had the treatment a long time ago. They love not having to worry about embarrassing sweat marks!
