Botox for Excessive Sweating
Did you know that excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) has a very effective treatment in the form of botulinum toxin? Some individuals are so burdened by this problem, that social gatherings and business meetings are embarrassing or uncomfortable*. You can get months of decreased or normalized sweat production in treated areas.* At CLS, we provide Botox for excessive sweating for underarms, hands, and feet.* Treatment starts to take effect at 3 days and is maximal at a week.* Typically, 100 units are used to cover both underarms.*

Botulinum Toxin F.A.Q.’s
1. How long does BOTOX® last?
The effects of BOTOX or Dysport last an average of 3 months.* That means that it will last less than 3 months for some and more than 3 months for others.*
2. How do I know if I’m getting “full-strength” BOTOX?
At CLS, we provide BOTOX by the unit rather than by the “area.” This way you know exactly how much you’re getting and whether it’s a good value. If we were treating “by the area” then it would not be clear how many units we were using. Also, how much water BOTOX is reconstituted in is irrelevant. As long as you are receiving a specified number of units, that is all that is important.*
3. I heard that BOTOX® is a poison. Is it safe to use in humans?
In the relatively tiny doses of BOTOX use for cosmetic injections, it is very safe.* No deaths or systemic problems have ever occurred from authentic BOTOX Cosmetic.*
4. How does BOTOX or Dysport make my wrinkles go away?
BOTOX paralyzes muscles of facial expression when it is injected into those muscles.* Once if freezes muscles such as those that cause frowning or wrinkling the forehead, the wrinkles associated with those movements starts to disappear.*
5. How much BOTOX do I need?
How much BOTOX is recommended varies greatly from person to person. The size and strength of the muscle being injected is important. Men also usually need more than women for the same area. Once you have repeat visits to the same provider, dose adjustment can yield the optimal amount necessary to give the desired results. If you have had injections of BOTOX previously with another provider, finding out how many units were used previously may be helpful in guiding your treatment.
6. Is there any downtime after BOTOX?
There is minor swelling or bruising after injection that typically goes away after 20 minutes. Occasionally bruising can occur, so please tell us if you are taking blood thinners. Bruising can usually be covered with make-up. *
7. Who does my injection?
One of our Physician Assistants will perform your treatment.
