Botox® for Excess Sweating

Hyperhidrosis or “excessive sweating” is a condition defined by abnormal amounts of perspiration greater than that required to regulate body temperature. Hyperhidrosis can be generalized over the entire body or may affect limited areas such as hands, feet, armpits or the groin area. It is a condition that may be passed down within families or acquired over time.

“Sweaty palms” or excessive sweating anywhere on the body interferes with everyday tasks and can impact a person professionally, academically, and socially. When hands are involved, gripping objects or shaking hands can be very difficult.  Many people with this condition become very self-conscious and the anxiety often aggravates the problem.

Dr. Zarrabi has effectively treated many sufferers of hyperhidrosis by injecting Botox® or Dysport® into hands, underarm areas or other sites where excessive perspiration is a problem. The procedure takes 20-30 minutes and results typically last for six months or more. While it is not a permanent solution, this treatment offers long-term relief without requiring the expense or recovery time of surgery. Most patients can see the complete effects of the treatment after 3-7 days of the injection, and are advised not to massage the treated area.

Dr. Zarrabi offers Botox® and Dysport® injections into the underarms and hands at his exclusive plastic surgery center in Santa Monica. Contact Dr. Zarrabi to find out if you are a good candidate for this innovative and life-changing procedure, and what type of treatment program will be the best match for your needs.
