Is Botox ideal for underarm sweating?

Not anymore. The best method to treat underarm sweating is Miradry, which provides a long-term solution that Botox simply cannot offer. Miradry also offers the least expense long-term for an individual, so Dr. Lam rarely performs Botox for underarm sweating now. However, if you need immediate results with almost no downtime, for example, you are getting married very soon, then Botox for underarm sweating may be a good alternative to Miradry.

Does Dr. Lam use Botox to treat facial sweating?

Yes, quite often. Botox really is the ideal solution for facial sweating that can be embarrassing. Unfortunately, a surgical option to manage this can be quite invasive by going into the chest area and have major side effects of global dryness. Botox remains in Dr. Lam’s opinion the gold standard for improvement that is safe and over time can be quite long lasting.

Does Dr. Lam use Botox for scalp sweating?

Absolutely. Dr. Lam uses the same technique to manage facial sweating, or hyperhidrosis, as he does for scalp sweating. It is very effective and over time can be long lasting in most individuals.

Does Dr. Lam use Botox for scalp sweating?

Absolutely. Dr. Lam uses the same technique to manage facial sweating, or hyperhidrosis, as he does for scalp sweating. It is very effective and over time can be long lasting in most individuals.

Does Dr. Lam treat hand sweating with Botox?

No, because the discomfort is quite high to do this so at this time he prefers not to perform hand sweating reduction with Botox.

Does Dr. Lam treat other parts of the body for excessive sweating?

No, only underarms, facial, and scalp sweating are the areas that Dr. Lam currently treats.

How often do I need to do this treatment?

Usually every 3 months for a few rounds until your sweat glands start to respond, then in many cases you can progressively come less often. For example, perhaps every 4 months, then every 6 months, and in some cases he has seen the results lasts 9 to 12 months over time, but this is not the case for everyone.

How painful is the procedure?

He first uses a numbing cream for 30 to 45 minutes for the facial areas, which are more sensitive than the scalp and the underarm before he begins. The underarm has only mild discomfort and Dr. Lam uses a vibratory method that does not usually require pre-numbing. The scalp similarly does not usually need numbing but if you would like you can always opt for any numbing cream prior to treatment. He can also offer Pro-Nox, or breathable nitrous gas, for those who are particularly sensitive to needle treatments.

How is the procedure performed exactly?

Dr. Lam uses a dilute Botox solution placed about every centimeter at the level of the dermis throughout the area of sweating. He uses a more concentrated dose more deeply for underarm sweating.

Is there any recovery time?

There can be very minimal bruising (usually mild) that should dissipate in most cases in a few days’ time.

How long will it last?

As mentioned above, usually about 3 months for the first time and then over time can last longer. In very severe cases, you may need a touchup if there is a breakthrough in sweating that has not resolved, which is not charged. Or there may be earlier return like at 6 weeks to 2 months the first time, which Dr. Lam would charge you for. Over time, however, in most cases, the results progressively last longer.

Are there any risks that I should know?

There are no long-term risks but when injecting Botox into the cheek area, there can be a reduced smile for 4 to 8 weeks. In the forehead, there is rarely a chance of the brow settling downward a small amount. All of these issues are temporary.

Does Botox cause excessive sweating elsewhere?

No, for example, the underarms only account for 2% of total body sweating so usually reducing one or two areas does not cause the other body areas to go into hyperdrive, so it is safe.
