What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive sweating, but not due to body temperature. This sweating most often occurs in the armpits or the palms of the hands, but symptoms can occur anywhere on the body. Hyperhidrosis is not life-threatening, but it can be a constant source of discomfort and embarrassment. Fortunately, hyperhidrosis symptoms can be managed with treatment.
How is Hyperhidrosis Treated?
Hyperhidrosis is caused by hyperactivity in the sweat glands. Therefore, effective hyperhidrosis treatment is targeted at reducing sweat gland activity in the affected areas. For mild to moderate cases, patients may be able to find relief with prescription antiperspirants. However, one of the most effective hyperhidrosis treatments is the injection of Botox® into the affected areas. Botox® can block the nerve signals that trigger sweating, effectively minimizing the symptoms of hyperhidrosis for a few months at a time.
How Much Does Hyperhidrosis Treatment Cost?
The cost of hyperhidrosis treatment at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the strategies involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.

What Can I Expect from Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
The results from hyperhidrosis treatment will vary depending on the treatment you receive. With Botox® injections, patients can expect to notice improvements within approximately 1 week as Botox® takes effect in the body. However, Botox® only lasts 3-4 months before it wears off, which means patients will need regular injections to maintain their results. Our goal is always to help patients find effective and long-lasting relief from excessive sweating through hyperhidrosis treatments.
