Botox Treatment for Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis

Does excessive facial sweating cause you to be embarrassed daily? Sweating is a normal bodily function, but excessive sweating can create difficulties with work and social situations. This excess sweating is known as craniofacial hyperhidrosis, and approximately 3% of Americans suffer from the condition. There are treatments available that can help reduce your symptoms and take back your life. If you are suffering from craniofacial hyperhidrosis, Botox® treatment can be an ideal solution.

What Causes Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis?

Many people experience sweating with hot temperatures, physical exertion during exercise or eating spicy foods. The sweat glands activate to cool the body and then shut off. When a person has craniofacial hyperhidrosis, the sweat glands stay over-activated continually.

There are numerous potential causes behind craniofacial hyperhidrosis. The condition can be hereditary or due to certain health conditions or medications. Receiving an accurate diagnosis can help determine the cause and the best treatments.

How Botox Treats Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis

Botox is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that is injected into the targeted area to treat craniofacial hyperhidrosis. It works by blocking receptors in the body that trigger the chemical responsible for activating the sweat glands. The outpatient procedure can be done in less than an hour with minimal discomfort. You may be able to resume normal activities right away. Results may be noticeable within a few days and last for up to a year.

Some patients may require multiple treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Side effects are minimal and are typically injection-related. You may experience some slight bruising, redness or swelling at the injection site. These symptoms can be expected to go away after a few days.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
