For some people, sweating can go into overdrive. Severe underarm, hand and/or foot sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition in which the body sweats more than it has to in order to regulate body temperature. The severity of the condition is based on the extent it interferes with your daily activities.
If you do any of the following to cope with sweating, talk to your Practitioner about severe underarm, hand and/or foot sweating:
BOTOX works by blocking the chemical signals from nerves that stimulate the overactive sweat glands. When the chemical signals stop, the amount of sweat these glands produce can be drastically reduced.
That’s right, patients experienced relief for up to 201 days, or 6.7 months.
Take a look at these clinical study results involving 322 patients with severe underarm sweating.
How long before I notice results from BOTOX for sweating treatments?
BOTOX for sweating takes 2-3 weeks to start working, and will reach it’s full effect at approximately one month after the initial treatment. Some people notice a decrease in sweating after only a week, but this isn’t typical or expected for the majority of men and women who have BOTOX for Sweating treatments.
Is it bad to stop sweating?
No. Because BOTOX blocks the chemical signals in the treated area only, you don’t have to worry about sweat building up or going to another part of your body. The rest of your body still makes sweat like normal because the BOTOX only works in the areas that are treated.
How long does BOTOX decrease sweat production?
BOTOX for sweating can last up to 9 months, which is much longer than BOTOX for frown lines and crows feet (which usually lasts about 4-6 months). For most people, BOTOX for sweating is a once-a-year procedure.
Are BOTOX for Sweating treatments painful?
No… you’ll barely feel a thing. In our office, we routinely use numbing cream under the arms to take away most of the discomfort. You may feel one or two very small pinches at the beginning of the procedure, but it’s actually a very easy and comfortable treatment.
