When is sweating considered excessive?

Sweating may be considered excessive if you answer “yes” to one or more of the following questions:

  • Have you tried deodorants and topical sweat reduction treatments to no avail?
  • Does sweating interfere with your work, everyday activities, and/or social life?
  • Are you self-conscious about shaking hands due to having sweaty palms?
  • Are you embarrassed of visible sweat stains on your clothing?
  • Do you consistently have to change articles of clothing, such as shirts and socks, throughout the day?
  • Do you sweat even while inactive?
  • What areas of the body can be treated?

The most commonly treated areas for hyperhidrosis include:

  • Underarms
  • Hands
  • Feet
  • Forehead
  • Inframammary folds
  • Inguine

Is it safe?

BOTOX® is a prescription medication approved by Health Canada. When administered correctly by a highly trained physician, BOTOX® affects only the area in which it is injected.

Does it hurt?

Prior to the procedure, a local anesthetic can be applied to targeted areas to help reduce any potential discomfort experienced during treatment.

Is there any recovery or downtime?

Some swelling and/or redness may appear in the treatment area(s), but this should resolve relatively quickly. The majority of patients are able to resume their normal daily routines immediately following treatment.
