If you suffer from excessive sweating underneath your armpits, you may have tried various deodorants, antiperspirants, and prescription medications. In many cases, these solutions simply do not suffice. For those more advanced cases, BOYD Beauty suggests Botox treatments to address your excessive sweating.
About Hyperhidrosis Botox Treatments
Hyperhidrosis is a common disorder that causes excessive sweating. Where sweating is necessary to manage your body temperature, stopping the release of sweat from small areas of the body is not harmful. Patients commonly look to additional solutions to temporarily halt the functioning of these overactive sweat glands. As early as 2004, the FDA approved Botox treatments to target axillary hyperhidrosis. According to the international hyperhidrosis society, Botox has proven to decrease sweating in almost 90% of patients.
How does Hyperhidrosis Treatment work?
During your procedure, a fine needle injects a small amount of Botox just beneath the skin’s surface. The amount of injections necessary will be discussed during your consultation based on the area that needs to be treated. OnabotulinumtoxinA (Botox) temporarily stops sweating by blocking the sweat glands, in the treated area only.
What are the results of Hyperhidrosis treatments?
Results of Botox treatments for underarm sweating will be noticeable within a few days after your treatment. Typically, our patients can see the benefits of the treatment for 6 to 9 months. Additional treatments following this time period are safe and can be a continual solution for your hyperhidrosis.
