Effective Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis Treatment With Botox

Excessive sweating from your head can be frustrating and embarrassing. It can affect your ability to run errands, work or have intimate relationships with others. Just thinking of a stressful situation can cause you to break out in beads of sweat. If you sweat profusely from your head or face for seemingly no reason, you may have craniofacial hyperhidrosis. Botox® injections used to treat wrinkles can be an effective craniofacial hyperhidrosis treatment.

Causes of Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis

There are two types of craniofacial hyperhidrosis. If you are diagnosed with primary focal hyperhidrosis, your condition may not have a known cause. Excess sweating may be present when there is a family history of hyperhidrosis. The symptoms of primary focal hyperhidrosis show up early in life, typically before a person reaches 25 years of age.

Secondary hyperhidrosis may mean certain diseases or hormonal imbalances may be behind the excess sweating. Hyperthyroidism, pregnancy, diabetes, menopause and infections may all cause sweat glands to become overactive. The most common cause can be medications or supplements you are taking. Facial sweating can become worse under stress or anxiety.

How Botox Helps Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis

Botox works to treat craniofacial hyperhidrosis by blocking the chemical in your body responsible for triggering sweat glands. According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, Botox injections can decrease excessive sweating by up to 87% for patients. Noticeable results can be experienced within four days after Botox treatment and last for six months or more. The outpatient process for these FDA-approved injections takes approximately 15 minutes, and you can continue your normal activities immediately after treatment. Repeat injections may be necessary for the first year after the initial procedure.

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.
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

Joann M.
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.
