Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can be an embarrassing condition, which is caused by overactive sweat glands. Excessive sweating can occur anywhere on the body. However, armpits, hands, and feet are the most common areas for this condition.
At Concept Medical, we offer effective treatments for patients suffering from hyperhidrosis in Ottawa. The FDA approved Botox for hyperhidrosis in 2004 for patients who have found little success and relief from antiperspirants and other over the counter treatments.
At Concept Medical in Ottawa, Botox is administered to specific areas under the arms, hands or feet, targeting sweat at its source. Botox temporarily blocks certain molecules responsible for activating the production of sweat, decreasing the amount of sweat released from glands. Botox in Ottawa interrupts your body’s natural perspiration response and results in overall reduced sweat load. Botox for hyperhidrosis in Ottawa begins with a detailed consultation with one of our physicians to ensure Botox is right for you.
Following your physician consultation, a small amount of freezing or ice may be used to make your Botox treatment more comfortable. Following freezing, a very fine needle is used to place tiny amounts of Botox within the skin. Discomfort during your Botox procedure is minimal and there is no downtime following the short Botox treatment.
Following a hyperhidrosis treatment with Botox at Concept Medical, most patients notice a substantial result within days to weeks. While individual results differ, patients may note up to an 80% reduction in symptoms. To maintain the results, repeat Botox treatments are usually performed at intervals of 6-12 months.
Furthermore, Botox for hyperhidrosis in Ottawa may be covered by extended health insurance plans. To request a consultation for Botox hyperhidrosis treatment in Ottawa please contact Concept Medical.
