Sweaty Feet Treatment in Manhattan NY Area

Curb Sweaty Hands and Feet with Pioneering and Innovative Botox Treatment

Having sweaty, odorous hands or feet can be embarrassing, causing issues such as hands or socks drenched with sweat or offensively smelly shoes. Fortunately, there is an answer, and it may not be what you think. Botox, a standard treatment for wrinkles, is also very effective at treating hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating usually unrelated to body temperature or exercise. Our team at SkinProvement Dermatology in Manhattan, New York, can help you curb your sweaty hands, feet, and the embarrassment that comes with them. 

What is Botox, and How Does It Address Excessive Sweating?

Botox is a neurotoxin well known as a treatment for smoothing out facial wrinkles by temporarily blocking the nerve signals to the muscles that cause them. Botox can also be used to treat certain medical conditions such as muscle spasms, chronic migraines, and hyperhidrosis. 

When Botox is injected into areas with excessive sweating, it temporarily blocks the nerves responsible for triggering the sweat glands. For most individuals, the nervous system triggers your sweat glands as your body temperature increases to cool itself quickly. For individuals with hyperhidrosis, this signal is on overdrive and causes sweating even when the body isn’t experiencing an increase in temperature. 

The Botox Procedure

Treating excessive sweating of the hands or feet is a quick in-office procedure that takes less than an hour. Our office has pioneered a technique to minimize discomfort using ice and vibration. Multiple injections are placed in each hand and/or foot with a tiny needle. If your hands are treated, you may experience temporary muscle weakness for a few weeks, which is generally tolerable. While some bruising, swelling, or tenderness is possible after Botox injections, symptoms are generally mild.
