Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Botox Cosmetic has been used for years for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox Therapeutic is an effective treatment for those who suffer from chronic migraines and also for Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. If excessive sweating is affecting your everyday life, talk to your doctor about Botox as a treatment option.
Botox works by blocking the release of acetylcholine at the nerve endings, temporarily turning off the stimulation of the sweat gland. It can lead to a significant decrease in perspiration. As your body metabolizes the Botox, your sweating will eventually return to normal, usually in about 6-12 months.
Some extended health care plans may cover the cost of Botox Therapeutic for Hyperhidrosis however almost no family physicians do the injections under BC MSP. Our clinic charges an injection fee (which also may be covered under some extended health plans) and appointments can usually be made within the same week for treatment. Book your appointment at White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic now to get started.
**Please note that prescription Botox Therapeutic must be purchased prior to coming in for injections. Your family doctor is required to fill out any paperwork for insurance purposes as it will include your medical history.
