Hyperhidrosis Missoula is a medical condition that leads to excessive sweating unrelated to heat or exercise. If you sweat profusely, even if it’s not particularly hot and you’re not exercising, you may have hyperhidrosis. This condition can be deeply embarrassing to individuals and lead to considerable social anxiety. We provide neuromodulator injections, such as Dysport and Xeomin, to prevent excessive sweating and improve your quality of life.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis:
- Excessive sweating from the underarms, scalp, face, hands, or feet
- Abnormal levels of sweating even without heat or exercise
- At least one episode of abnormal, excessive sweating per week
- Excessive sweating on both sides of the body
What Causes Hyperhidrosis?
Your body induces sweat as a cooling mechanism. When your body’s temperature increases because of exercise or hot temperatures, your nervous system signals the sweat glands to start releasing moisture, which can cool your body down. Hyperhidrosis occurs when the nerves connected to your sweat glands go on overdrive, leading to excessive and abnormal sweating without external stimuli or exercise. Hyperhidrosis usually runs in the family.
Neuromodulators are the most effective hyperhidrosis treatments available. Neuromodulators are cosmetic injections made of the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A, which can temporarily block communications between nerve endings and targeted muscles. When neuromodulators are strategically injected in the underarm region, they temporarily prevent your overactive nerves from communicating with the sweat glands, thus stopping abnormal sweating. Your hyperhidrosis in Missoula results appear within a few days and last for months.

The Hyperhidrosis Treatment Process
Your hyperhidrosis in Missoula treatment starts with a thorough evaluation with Francienne. She will carefully examine your treatment areas, discuss your symptoms and concerns, review your medical history, and administer tests to determine the root cause of hyperhidrosis. After a thorough evaluation, she will curate a personalized hyperhidrosis treatment plan, which involves selecting the appropriate neuromodulator (Dysport or Xeomin) and the ideal dose.
During hyperhidrosis treatment, the medical provider will cleanse the targeted treatment area and apply a numbing gel to ensure a comfortable experience. The medical provider will select the appropriate units of neuromodulators for your treatment. The chosen neuromodulator is carefully delivered into the treatment areas via ultrafine needles. The number of injections depends on your specific needs — the entire process takes 15 to 20 minutes.
Hyperhidrosis treatment with neuromodulators doesn’t involve considerable side effects or downtime. You may experience mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising for a few days, but there’s no downtime. You can resume your daily activities immediately, provided you avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a day or two.
Your Hyperhidrosis Treatment Results
Hyperhidrosis treatment produces gradual results over several days, with continued improvements for two weeks. You might start noticing improvements in how much you sweat after 3 to 4 days, but the results will finalize after 2 weeks. The final results last 3 to 4 months, and you may start sweating abnormally again. Most patients must repeat hyperhidrosis treatments every 3 to 4 months to maintain the results.
