QUESTION

Is Botox for Sweating Permanent or Will I Have to Have Routine Injections, As is the Case for Wrinkles?

How long does a botox treatment last for heavy perspiration?

ANSWER

Botox for Excessive Sweating Length of Effect

Thank you for your question. Effects of injectable botulinium toxin (Botox or Dysport), no matter where they are injected, are temporary and routine injections are required to maintain desired results. Botox and Dysport work by disrupting the communication between nerves and sweat glands and as the toxins are metabolized by the body the results slowly wear off. Generally speaking, these results last four to six months, however some individuals may experience length of effects that are slightly shorter or longer. In our San Francisco Bay Area practice we have a large volume of patients recieving Botox and Dysport with high statisfaction and return rates. For the best results, visit the office of a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. I hope this helps.
