How Does Botox for Sweating Work?
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, can be a frustrating and embarrassing condition that affects many people. If you have tried antiperspirants, medication, or other treatments without success, Botox for sweating may be a viable option. At Sparkle Lifestyle & MediSpa in Moncton NB, we offer this treatment to help you achieve relief from excessive sweating.
Botox is a neurotoxin that is commonly used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face. However, it can also be used to block the signals that cause excessive sweating. When injected into the sweat glands in the underarms, Botox temporarily stops the production of sweat.
What to Expect During the Procedure
- Consultation: The first step is to schedule a consultation with a qualified and experienced injector. During the consultation, you will discuss your medical history and the areas where you experience excessive sweating. The injector will examine the areas and determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment.
- Preparation: Before the procedure, the injector will clean the treatment area and may apply a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. They may also use a special device to map out the area and determine the exact locations to inject the Botox.
- Injection: The injector will use a fine needle to inject small amounts of Botox into the sweat glands in the treatment area. The number of injections will depend on the size and location of the treatment area.
- Post-treatment care: After the procedure, you can resume your normal activities. However, you should avoid exercise or any activities that cause sweating for at least 24 hours after the treatment. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites, but these side effects should subside within a few days.
- Results: The effects of Botox for sweating typically take about one to two weeks to fully develop. You can expect a significant reduction in sweating in the treatment area for up to six months or more, depending on the individual.
