What To Expect

How it works

We offer two treatment options for hyperhidrosis: 1) The Botox injection option works to relax the tiny muscles that push out sweat from the sweat glands. More relaxed muscles means less sweat in the treated area; 2) Dr. Day can prescribe an easy-to-use, at-home medication FDA approved for excessive sweating.

How we do it

We offer prescription treatments like Qbrexza and in-office treatments like Botox to help patients manage excessive sweating.

Side effects

Time to full effect

Patients can see results from Botox in as little as 2-3 days! No matter which modality patients choose, treating this condition comes with the realization that wearing colors, feeling confident on dates or interviews, and reducing the dry cleaning bill are all within reach.

Questions? We’ve Got Answers.

What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis a condition that causes excessive sweating in amounts that far exceeds that which is needed to regulate body temperature. It develops most frequently in adolescence or young adulthood and can be exacerbated by stress, emotional fluctuation, or exercise. It can also occur spontaneously...so unfair! Because untreated hyperhidrosis can cause dehydration and a range of other skin problems, it’s important to seek care as promptly as possible.

Does health insurance cover treatment for hyperhidrosis?

Some health insurance providers may provide coverage for hyperhidrosis treatment, but it is not guaranteed. Please discuss this with your health insurance provider directly to determine if you have coverage.
