Frequently Asked Questions About Botox for Hyperhidrosis
How does Botox stop me from sweating? Is it safe to get Botox for hyperhidrosis?
Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily affects your muscles in the same way it does in your face. Only when used on the body, it stops excessive sweating!
How many Botox injections do I need to treat hyperhidrosis?
It’s important to note that Botox is not permanent, though it is long lasting. Our clients visit us as needed to help curb their excessive sweating; depending on a wide variety of factors, you may need to return again between 4 and 12 months to maintain the effect.
How much downtime is there after receiving Botox for hyperhidrosis?
None! After receiving Botox injections in your underarms, you’re free to go right back to work or back to your daily routine.
What areas of the body can I get Botox injections for sweating?
Botox is FDA-approved for use under the arms (for excessive sweating) and on the face (to reduce wrinkles). It can also be used “off label” for the hands and feet.
How much does Botox cost in Morgantown WV?
At Willow Med Spa, we price our Botox by “unit,” or the volume of the product that we use for your unique needs. The cost for Botox for hyperhidrosis will ultimately depend on the size of the treatment area and the severity of your sweating.
Will my insurance cover Botox for hyperhidrosis?
Willow Med Spa & Salon does not accept insurance for any of our treatments. That said, we would be happy to print you an invoice to submit to your insurance company. We recommend first checking with your insurance carrier to determine your eligibility for reimbursement.
If I get Botox for excessive sweating, will I still need to wear deodorant afterwards?
That’s up to you! Sweat is the primary cause of the smell you may notice under your arms. With that sweat gone or exceptionally minimized, there should be no need. (Hint: getting laser hair removal under your arms can help you be truly comfortable in tank tops and bathing suits!)
