Botox Injections to Treat Excessive Foot Sweating
The Center for Foot Care is now offering Botox treatments to mitigate excessive foot sweating. Botox injections are an in-demand treatment for underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) and can be applied to regulate excessive sweating on the hands and feet too. Generally, the improvement last approximately 4-6 months and re-treatment can be safely administered as needed.
How does Botox stop excessive sweating in feet?
Botox works by blocking out the nerves responsible for triggering your sweat glands. Typically, your nervous system triggers your sweat glands when your body temperature increases. This is how your body quickly cools itself. When it comes to individuals with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.
Is there any downtime after the procedure?
You can return to your regular routine promptly after getting Botox injections. It will take roughly two to seven days for you to stop sweating in the treated area. It can take two weeks to obtain full benefit.
Be fully informed.
Botox treatment for excessively sweaty feet is used off-label. This means that while Botox is FDA approved for sweaty underarms, it does not have the same level of vigorous testing for use in feet.
