If you are unhappy with excessive sweating in common problem areas, you are not alone. Sweating is a natural function our bodies perform to cool down and eliminate toxins. However, excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, affects many people and can cause discomfort and negatively impact self esteem. Thankfully, the professionals at Infinity MedSpa offer personalized BOTOX treatments for hyperhidrosis. If you are searching for an effective and simple solution for eliminating excessive sweat, BOTOX treatments could benefit you!
What is BOTOX for Hyperhidrosis?
When your body temperature rises, the nervous system activates your sweat glands – causing the body to automatically cool itself. Hyperhidrosis refers to abnormal sweating, including sweating when it’s not hot. Unfortunately, regular antiperspirants may not work well for individuals experiencing excessive sweating.
BOTOX is a newer solution for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. BOTOX is a neurotoxin composed of onabotulinumtoxinA, which is designed to block the nerve receptors responsible for activating sweat glands. When delivered directly to the affected area, BOTOX specialized molecules bind to the nerve receptors disabling their ability to signal sweat glands to produce.
How Do Treatments Work?
An initial consultation is first required in order to determine a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Prior to beginning, a numbing topical may be applied to the targeted area to minimize discomfort.
During treatment, BOTOX is delivered directly to the area of your body that commonly sweats through a series of small injections. Once delivered, the BOTOX molecules work to bind to the targeted nerve receptors, temporarily paralyzing them and disabling their ability to activate your sweat glands. The result is greatly reduced sweating in the treated area. Results are typically noticeable within 2 weeks following treatment.
Sessions for BOTOX are quick, and usually take about 30 minutes to an hour to complete. The process is non-invasive with minimal discomfort during treatment. Results typically last 3 to 6 months, but may vary for each patient.
The benefits of BOTOX for Hyperhidrosis include:
Eliminates excessive sweating in common problem areas
Minimal-discomfort during sessions
