Botox for Hyperhidrosis at SkinProvement Dermatology in NYC Area

Where can I get Botox for Hyperhidrosis in NYC?

Dr. Stephen Comite at SkinProvement Dermatology in NYC specializes in the use of Botox for Hyperhidrosis, or “excessive sweating.” He’s a patient-oriented dermatologist with years of experience applying Botox injections for patients with various symptoms. He’ll work with you to understand your goals and how he can help. He can review the use of Botox for hyperhidrosis and help you decide if this treatment is right for you.

How does Botox help with hyperhidrosis?

Botox has proven highly effective for treating several dermatological conditions, including excessive sweating. Your body keeps cool by triggering sweat glands at a specific body temperature. Hyperhidrosis occurs when the nerves activating your sweat glands become overactive. That can happen for several reasons, many of which are irreversible. For years, the only option was management, such as wearing sweat-proof clothing or staying cool. That is no longer the case. Dr. Comite offers Botox treatments that have proven to minimize hyperhidrosis in the majority of patients effectively.

When Botox is injected into trouble areas, it effectively paralyzes the nerves that trigger your sweat glands, stopping them from producing excessive sweat. That doesn’t interrupt your body’s ability to cool itself, as it only affects the nerves in precisely targeted areas. The effects are not permanent but can last up to five months before another injection might be necessary.

Will Botox hurt?

When a trained expert like Dr. Comite administers Botox, the discomfort will be minimal. Professional administration is also the best way to get the results you are after. Dr. Comite has been specially trained in human anatomy and can apply injections to targeted areas with minimal discomfort on your part and without threatening unrelated nerves or tissue. Botox injections use a very fine needle, further reducing pain. Dr. Comite may also use ice or a numbing agent to desensitize further the area being treated, if necessary. You can discuss with him any concerns you have before treatment begins. Your safety and comfort are his top priority, and he will work with you to make sure you’re confident in your care every step of the way.

How does Botox feel like as it happens?

Dr. Comite will go over the procedure with you in detail before you begin any treatment. He will answer your questions and discuss everything you should expect, so you’re fully prepared. Botox is a quick and straightforward procedure, and it requires minimal preparation, if any. Before treatment begins, Dr. Comite may also use a numbing agent to reduce discomfort. Once you’re ready, he’ll inject Botox in a careful grid pattern over the area being treated. Typically, recovery is minimal. You’ll keep an eye on things to make sure you don’t have any unexpected reactions. Most patients don’t require a follow-up appointment for many months.
