Sweat-Free Summer: The Benefits of Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Sweat-Free Summer: The Benefits of Hyperhidrosis Treatment
Summer is meant to be stress-free, but excessive sweating can make it feel otherwise. It’s more than just an annoyance—it can affect your confidence and day-to-day comfort. Let’s talk about Hyperhidrosis at Basis, and how Botox treatments for excessive sweating can help you stay cool and confident.

Understanding Hyperhidrosis: A Summer Struggle

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition where you sweat beyond what's necessary for regulating body temperature. We all sweat to keep cool, but if you have hyperhidrosis, your sweat glands are working overtime, often affecting areas like the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis), palms (palmar hyperhidrosis), and feet (plantar hyperhidrosis). Summer heat can make this even more challenging.

Botox: Your Solution to Reducing Sweat

When you hear of Botox you probably think of smoothing wrinkles, but did you know it's also great for reducing sweat? By injecting Botox into the areas of concern, we can reduce the nerve signals that tell your sweat glands to get to work, cutting down on sweat production.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment at Basis: How It Works

When you visit us at Basis Clinic, we want you to feel informed and comfortable. During your consultation with RN Deanne Pilsner and Dr. Jon Dautremont, we’ll discuss your concerns and create a personalized plan. Once you’re happy with your treatment plan, we'll proceed with Botox injections in the areas of concern. Our technique involves a topical test to identify the precise location of the overactive sweat glands, and then gently rolling the ultra-fine needle into your skin to deliver the medication. This technique minimizes discomfort and the risk of bruising while increasing the effectiveness of the treatment by not using more or less medication than necessary. Most patients find it painless, and we’re here to make sure you feel at ease with options like pre-treatment icing, breaks or numbing cream.

Botox is priced at $7 per unit, and results typically last between 4 to 6 months depending on your body’s response. Treatment amounts can vary: 50 units per underarm and 50-100 units per hand/foot are typical, depending on severity.

Best Practices for Great Results

To get the most out of your hyperhidrosis treatment, here are some tips we recommend:
1. Stay Hydrated: Drinking enough water helps regulate your body temperature.
2. Avoid Triggers: Cut back on caffeine and spicy foods, which can make you sweat more.
3. Follow Aftercare: We’ll give you specific instructions after your injections.
4. Plan for Touch-Ups: While results are long-lasting, consistent re-care can help space out treatments down the road.
