Botox For Excessive Sweating
One of the most important ways in which the body regulates its temperature is through sweating. Unfortunately, people who suffer from underarm Hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their body temperature. This can become an embarrassing problem both at work and socially.
Injections of Botulinum Toxin can block the actions of the nerves that supply these glands, restricting their activity and significantly reducing sweat production.
How Does It Work?
Axillary Hyperhidrosis is caused by over activity of the eccrine gland. These glands can be found on many areas of the body surface but are concentrated on the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet and under the armpits. The effects of overactive eccrine glands can be controlled with injections that block the actions of the nerves that supply them, restricting their activity and preventing them from producing as much sweat.
What Happens During The Procedure?
The procedure, which is injected with a tiny needle just beneath the skin’s surface, takes about thirty minutes and its effects can last up to nine months. The procedure is painless because numbing cream is applied to the area to be treated and there is no need to schedule any recovery time.
When Can You Expect Results?
Most importantly, the effects of the Botox can be noticed within three days, with a significant reduction in sweating evident within a week. There is the small possibility of mild side effects such as transient bruising, swelling, redness etc. These should subside quickly but should be fully explained by one of our specialist practitioners.
With no recovery time and only 1-3 treatments per year, Botox may be the answer to your problem.
