Botox For Sweating

While exercise or being in a hot environment naturally evokes excessive sweating, there are instances where heavy sweating occurs without these triggers. As a real medical condition in which an individual sweats excessively for no apparent reason, Hyperhidrosis may cause a person to sweat even when conditions are cool or when they are in a state of rest. Hyperhidrosis may affect the face, hands, feet, underarms, or other smaller areas of the body, and may lead to physical, as well as emotional discomfort.

FDA approved in 2004, Botox, or OnabotulinumtoxinA, is a safe and effective injectable that temporarily blocks the chemical that signals the body’s sweat glands. Thus, when treating heavy sweating of the hands, feet, head or face, Botox essentially “turns off” sweating where it is injected. Studies note that Botox injections decrease excessive sweating in the palms of the hands up to 90%, while sweating is decreased up to 87% when injected in the underarm area. In turn, Botox injections also prove successful in controlling excessive sweating of the head and face.

With unsurpassed surgical skill, Dr. Maurice Khosh is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon with combined specialties in aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery of the face. Although Botox is primarily used to address signs of aging, it is also used for non-aesthetic reasons, which is why Dr. Khosh invites you to contact his office in Manhattan if you are suffering from extreme sweating.

Severe Underarm Sweating Treatment

For those experiencing severe underarm sweating, Botox (OnabotulinumtoxinA) is a purified, natural protein that is injected into the underarm area for temporary relief of excessive sweating. Injected just below the surface of the skin, Botox remains there, blocking the chemical that signals the body’s sweat glands to “turn on.” With noticeable results within 4 days and dryness experienced for as long as 18 months, Botox has proved to be effective and consistent in providing long-lasting relief of severe underarm sweating.

Is excessive underarm sweating affecting your quality of life? Dr. Maurice Khosh welcomes you to schedule an appointment to learn about the non-aesthetic benefits of Botox. If you are a good candidate, Dr. Khosh is happy to design a treatment plan that is safe and effective for you. Contact us today schedule a consultation about treating excessive sweating.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

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.

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.
