How Botox Can Help You Stop Excessive Sweating

Man looking at computer cosmetic procedures New York NY

Sweating is a normal function of your body to help you regulate your temperature after a hard workout or when you are outside on warm days. If you consistently experience noticeable sweating when you are at rest or stressed, you may have hyperhidrosis. This excessive sweating condition can be embarrassing and physically uncomfortable. Botox® injections known for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles are able to decrease sweating in various parts of the body. Here is how Botox injections can help you stop excessive sweating to improve your quality of life.

How Botox Hyperhidrosis Treatment Works

In hyperhidrosis, an overactive nervous system triggers sweat glands to continually work unnecessarily to cool the body. Botox hyperhidrosis treatment temporarily paralyzes the signals sent by these sweat glands to help stop excessive sweating. You will still be able to sweat in other areas that are untreated. The injection process takes less than an hour with minimal downtime. For sensitive areas, a numbing cream can be applied first to relieve any discomfort.

How Long Does Botox Treatment for Excessive Sweating Last?

Botox hyperhidrosis treatment can take up to two weeks to experience optimal results. The results you can achieve depends on the number of treatments and your body’s reaction. If you are getting Botox treatments for the first time, you may need a follow-up injection. Botox injections can relieve excessive sweating for around 6 to 12 months.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
