Neurotoxin Injections for Hyperhidrosis

About Neurotoxin Injections for Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition of involuntary excessive sweating which typically involves the axilla (armpits), palms of the hands, soles of the feet, the groin, and the face.  Not all individuals have excessive sweating in all these areas but many do have a positive family history in another member.  It is particularly discomforting to have excessive sweating in the axilla and the palms because of social interactions.



Neurotoxin Hyperhidrosis treatment

In order to assess the appropriate dosage of Neurotoxin to treat hyperhidrosis, a Minor's starch iodine test is applied to the affected area (i.e. underarms, palms etc.).  After the test is applied, the area of sweating is visible, as well as the severity of the sweating, which can guide the dosage required.  Usually men require higher doses than do women.

Dr. Searles treats many patients with hyperhidrosis with BoTNA and treatment is very effective.
