Vancouver patients with hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can find the condition frustrating and even
debilitating on a daily basis.
Normally, sweating is a way for our bodies to regulate our temperature. The body’s nervous system
automatically triggers sweat glands when the body begins to get too warm or nervous, or when the person
Some of the more common areas where excessive sweating may occur are around the hairline, under the arms,
and on the palms and feet. This is known as primary hyperhidrosis. Secondary hyperhidrosis is a
condition where the person sweats over their entire body.
On average, a typical person can sweat about one liter of fluid per day. In cases where a person is
dealing with hyperhidrosis, they could end up sweating about four times this amount.
In most cases of hyperhidrosis, antiperspirants and other topical solutions to sweat are rendered
ineffective. The good news is that there are several effective treatment options available for excessive
In order to determine which treatments are best for your specific case, you will need to be examined by a
doctor. During this checkup, our Medical Director, Dr. Perhez Jaffer, can review the symptoms and rule
out any potential underlying medical conditions.
If everything checks out medically, a solution worth exploring is Botox treatment for
hyperhidrosis. Botox is traditionally known as a
wrinkle-prevention treatment. However, this injectable can also serve to paralyze the muscle of the sweat
glands and reduce sweating.
Botox for hyperhidrosis starts to take effect within four to ten days and can remain effective for up to
six months after the initial injections. This treatment works best in areas such as the underarms and
around the hairline.
During Botox treatments, Dr. Jaffer uses a small syringe to inject the solution numerous times to cover
as much surface area as possible in the area where the sweating occurs.
The good news about Botox treatments for severe sweating is that a session takes as little as ten to
fifteen minutes to complete and requires no recovery time. Once the patient starts noticing the sweat
returning to the treated area, they can return for another visit.
