What is Hyperhidrosis?

Excessive perspiration, also known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition that leads to persistent sweating even when there’s no external stimulus. Sweating is your body’s response to excessive heat. When the temperature is high or you’re engaging in strenuous workouts, your nerve endings stimulate the sweat glands to produce sweat, which regulates your body’s temperature, helping you cool down. Hyperhidrosis is a condition wherein your sweat glands go on overdrive and produce sweat even when your body isn’t particularly hot.


There are many treatment options available, and it is recommended you schedule an appointment with our medical providers. The treatment plan may include non-invasive medications, antiperspirants, and/or Botox injections. Botox is one of the most effective treatments for hyperhidrosis. This treatment is available here at Premier Aesthetic Dermatology. Botox is made of botulinum toxin, a specialized neurotoxin protein that can block communications between nerve endings and your sweat glands, thus preventing you from generating excessive sweat. The results usually last for 3 to 4 months.

Is there any downtime after Botox Treatment for hyperhidrosis?

Botox doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately after your treatment. However, you should ideally avoid strenuous workouts, deodorant, and shaving the area for at least 24 hours after treatment.
