Botox® is a purified protein that interrupts the signal from the nerves to the sweat glands. It is administered through a series of tiny injections with a fine needle under the skin affected areas. No anaesthetic is required and most patients report very little discomfort. Reduction of sweating in treated areas is generally seen within two weeks. Treatments can last up to six months and should be repeated at regular intervals to maintain results.
Botox® treatments for Hyperhidrosis are not covered by OHIP, however private insurance may cover all or a portion of the treatment.
A referral from your family doctor will be required to initiate treatment.
