WHAT IS BOTOX®?
Botulinum toxin is a natural, purified protein
with the ability to temporarily block the secretion
of the chemical in the nervous system that is
responsible for "turning on" the body's
sweat glands. By blocking, or interrupting,
this chemical messenger, botulinum toxin "turns
off" sweating in the area where it has been
Using local injections of botulinum toxin to alleviate the symptoms of hyperhidrosis is a promising new approach. Research has shown that treating the armpits, hands, feet, and face with botulinum toxin is safe and effective. In one clinical study involving 322 patients with severe underarm sweating, 81% of the patients receiving botulinum toxin injections achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating. And, 50% of the patients had their excessive sweating relieved for at least 201 days (nearly 7 months).
During the procedure, a very fine needle is
used to inject small amounts of botulinum toxin
just under the skin near the sweat glands responsible
for excessive perspiration. Multiple injections
are given based on your doctor's assessment
of the area that needs to be treated. Injections
into the palms or soles may be painful. To ease
discomfort, physicians may use one or more of
a number of anesthetic techniques such as pain-killing
creams or ice.
The results of the treatment appear after 3
to 6 days. There is a possibility that during
the procedures some sweat glands may be missed.
As a result some sweating may appear in the
untreated areas. If so it is important to talk
to the doctor so that he or she can reevaluate
the sweating areas and perhaps "fill in" the
gaps with additional injections. Botulinum toxin
injections do not cure hyperhidrosis; the symptoms
will return gradually. Follow-up injections
are required to maintain dryness. These repeat
injections may be necessary at intervals varying
from 8 to 12 months and longer.
