Hyperhidrosis: Treatments for Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) affects nearly 1% of the population in the United States – but it does not need to affect you! Dr. Donaldson uses Botox to stop excessive sweating under the arms, on the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet and the face.

Do You Suffer from Hyperhidrosis?


  • “I always wear black because my shirt gets totally soaked”
  • “I hate toasts because I’m always afraid my glass will slip out of my sweaty hand”
  • “People avoid hugging me when they say hello because they’ll get their arms wet”
  • “I own five pairs of each kind of shoe so I can change them throughout the day”
  • “People think it’s a practical joke when I shake their hand and mine is totally soaked”
  • “I’ve actually had ice under my arms when I was outside during the winter”

How BOTOX Can Help

For more than ten years, Botox has become a well-established treatment for hyperhidrosis. Columbus, Ohio patients find it to be safe and effective, with no downtime or recovery and usually lasting for six months. Most patients’ only regret is that they didn’t try it sooner.

Sweat is produced by the eccrine glands that lie on the undersurface of the skin. When Botox is placed in the skin, these glands relax and are unable to produce sweat. The effect is dryness that lasts!

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Botox injection is a 10-15 minute office procedure, depending on the size of the affected area. Dr. Donaldson insists on maximum comfort and he uses a state-of-the-art combination of anesthetic cream and cold therapy to numb the treatment sites before injection. Botox takes 2-3 days to begin working, and the most common side effect is mild bruising.
