Hyperhidrosis means excessive sweating, underarm, hand and feet sweating – all of which are usually very annoying and can interfere with social activities. Xeomin® is FDA approved, easy to inject, safe and effective for the treatment of severe underarm sweating when topical agents prove to be ineffective. Such a injection is also effective for hand and feet sweating.
During the procedure at the doctor's office, a small amount of Xeomin® is injected into the affected underarm area through a very fine needle. In a short appointment with your dermatologist, about 15 injections are made to the underarm area.
The actual procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes and lasts up to 201 days or 6.7 months. You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within 4 weeks of your first treatment. If you do not see a significant reduction in sweating, you should contact your healthcare provider and request a follow-up consultation.
