BOTOX® FOR HYPERHIDROSIS
Botox for hyperhidrosis treats excessive sweating. The area to be treated is first numbed using a special topical cream. A few drops of Botox are injected with a tiny needle superficially under the skin. Botox blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the sweat glands are inactivated. Dramatic responses are often seen within a few days. However the results are in most cases temporary and may need to be repeated after 3 to 6 months.
Botox hyperhidrosis injections are one of the safest available. Botox hyperhidrosis treatment has been used safely and successfully in ophthalmology for over 12 years and for wrinkle therapy for almost 10 years. It has been approved by the FDA for neurological disorders. In the amounts used for this therapy, the only possible side effects are temporary and localized to the area of injection. However, medical treatment is not an exact science and the degree of the improvement is variable. Occasionally there is no improvement and another form of treatment may be required.
Botox injections for hyperhidrosis inactivate sweat glands and treat excessive sweating, commonly under the arms and the palms of your hands. Only the right hand was treated for this picture.
Nearly all patients continue their routine daily activity immediately after the treatment. When Botox is injected there is an initial minor sting for a few seconds. Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort.
Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen-like medications for 1 week before treatment. After treatment, avoid lying down or massaging the treated area for 4 hours after treatment. Do not exercise for 24 hours. If you get a headache (as some people do for few hours after the treatment) you may take a Tylenol, unless otherwise advised by Dr. Khuu. You will notice the effect of the Botox in 5 to 10 days.
At Khuu Dermatology, we are experts in treating Botox® for Hyperhidrosis, and have been doing so for years.
Now's also the time to manage your UV damage.
Ask us about photodynamic therapy for your actinic keratoses treatment. Yes, it is covered by your insurance.
Levulan® Kerastick® (aminolevulinic acid HCl) for Topical Solution, 20% (Levulan Kerastick) plus blue light illumination using the BLU-U® Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy Illuminator (Levulan PDT) is indicated for the treatment of minimally to moderately thick actinic keratosis of the face or scalp. Actinic keratoses (AKs) are rough-textured, dry, scaly patches on the skin that can lead to skin cancer. Levulan PDT, a 2-part treatment, is unique because it uses a light activated drug therapy to destroy AKs.
So how does it work? Levulan Kerastick Topical Solution is applied to the AK. The solution is then absorbed by the AK cells where it is converted to a chemical that makes the cells extremely sensitive to light. When the AK cells are exposed to the BLU-U Blue Light Illuminator, a reaction occurs which destroys the AK cells.
Levulan PDT has a range of benefits that might be right for you. The 2-part treatment offers the following conveniences:
The 2-part treatment can also fit your lifestyle:
*Patients treated with Levulan PDT should avoid exposure of the photosensitized lesions to sunlight or prolonged or intense light for at least 40 hours.
