What Is Botox® for Hyperhidrosis?
Botox® Therapeutic (as opposed to Botox® Cosmetic which is used for facial rejuvenation) is a treatment for excessive sweating of the forehead, hands, feet and underarms. Excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) effects thousands of Canadians and it is covered by most private insurance plans.
Botox® Therapeutic is injected into the problem area. When Botox is placed near the sweat glands, perspiration is greatly reduced.
