I Was Wondering What Your Thoughts Are About Botox Treatment For Localized Hyperhidrosis?

I Was Wondering What Your Thoughts Are About Botox Treatment For Localized Hyperhidrosis?

A MyHyperhidrosisTeam Member said:

Botox works on my scalp so that sweat doesn’t drip down my forehead and into my eyes. But insurance doesn’t usually pay for it. Need it every 3 months. No bruising, no muscle problems unless it’s too close to your eyes (lids droop); pinches a lot during injections - use the same needle for multiple injections. Well worth it.

I got botox injections in one of my palms to try it out, it was quiet painful as my doctor didnt use anything to numb the area and I chose to not be asleep while they did it. It cleared the area of sweat id say about 80% which was pretty good! However botox only lasted about 3 months for me before the sweating came back. A problem with getting botox in a place like your hands which I had is it weakens your muscles greatly in the area. For a few weeks I couldnt even open a toothpaste tube ! And my hand had bad bruising and the injection spots on it for about a week after getting it.
