How Does Botox Work?
It works by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which is responsible for activating sweat glands. By injecting Botox into specific areas with overactive sweat glands, the signals from the nerves are inhibited, reducing sweating in those regions.
Meet with a qualified medical professional, usually a specialist experienced in administering Botox for hyperhidrosis. They will assess your medical history, evaluate the severity of your condition, and discuss the potential benefits and risks of the treatment.
Preparing For The Procedure
On the day of the treatment, the area to be treated will be cleaned, and a numbing cream may be applied to minimize any discomfort during the injections.
The Botox is then injected into specific points in the affected areas. The number of injections and the dose used will vary based on individual needs. The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes.
Recovery and Results
There is little to no downtime associated with Botox injections for hyperhidrosis. You can usually resume your regular activities immediately. The effects of the treatment typically start to become noticeable within a few days to a week after the procedure. The results can last anywhere from four to twelve months, but individual responses may vary.
The primary benefit of Botox is a significant reduction in excessive sweating in the treated areas, such as the hands, feet, and armpits. This can positively impact daily life, as excessive sweating can be embarrassing, socially isolating, and interfere with various activities.
Excessive sweating can lead to self-consciousness and avoidance of social situations, impacting personal and professional relationships. With reduced sweating, individuals may feel more at ease in social gatherings and work environments.
Better Skin Health
Excessive sweating can contribute to skin problems, such as skin infections, rashes, and irritation. By reducing sweating, Botox can help prevent these skin issues, promoting better skin health.
Excessive sweating can make it challenging to maintain proper hygiene, as it can lead to persistent dampness and odor. With less sweating, individuals can better manage personal hygiene and reduce unpleasant smells.
Botox for hyperhidrosis is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require surgery. It offers an alternative for individuals who may be hesitant or not eligible for other treatment options.
Long Lasting Results
Botox injections for hyperhidrosis can provide relief for several months, typically ranging from four to twelve months, depending on the individual response. This extended duration means fewer treatment sessions are required compared to some other treatments
