Hyperhidrosis / Excessive Sweating

Botox as treatment for Hyperhidrosis

Botox is approved by the FDA to be an effective hyperhidrosis treatment. A hyperhidrosis treatment is for excessive sweating. At The Dermatology Center of Newport we use Botox as a treatment. Botox can be injected into the underarms and hands to help control severe sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. By blocking the chemical signals, the sweat glands stop producing excessive amounts of sweat.
