Hyperhidrosis means excessive sweating. Perspiration is a normal bodily function, controlled by the
autonomic nervous system. Sweat glands are found in the skin throughout the body, however are present in
higher numbers in the skin of the hands, feet, armpits and the genital regions. Perspiring is a normal
physiologic response of the body when the internal or body temperature rises. This response is
characteristically seen with either exercise, or exposure to high environmental temperatures. Stressful
situations can also stimulate the autonomic nervous system which then increases sweat production by the
glands highly concentrated in the hands, feet, or other regions. In most people, the autonomic response in
the sweat glands to stress is not excessive. Unfortunately in patients with hyperhidrosis (approximately
2-3% of Americans), the autonomic stimulation of the sweat glands in response to stress is
Botox injections are used to disable the sweat glands. Botox acts by blocking acetyl choline release at the nerve endings that stimulate the sweat glands thus shutting down the sweat process on the injected sites. The effects can last from 6-12 months depending on the site of injections. The procedure when used for underarm sweating has been approved by the FDA, thus giving new hope for people who after failing to respond to topical treatments were compelled to face surgery.*
Dr. Khan identifies the hyperactive sweat area or areas with Minor’s Starch Iodine test and then, 10 to 15 sites, approximately 2 cm apart, are injected into each axilla. The whole procedure may take 20-30 minutes including the Botox preparation.*
50 units of Botox are usually needed for each axilla. The number of units required may vary depending on the individual patient. Visible results are usually seen in just a few days.*
