Do you find you sweat excessively? An annoying and oftentimes embarrassing problem, excessive sweating can be treated via Botox injections. Treatment is available through the best dermatologists in Beverly Hills, and may seriously help this stressful problem. Botox was approved for treatment of excessive underarm sweating in 2004.
According to SweatHelp.org, “When used to treat underarm excessive sweating, Botox has been shown to result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating. Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months but some studies have found it can last as long as 14 months.”
If considering Botox in Beverly Hills as a solution to your sweating issue, check out what you should know:
How it Works
Sweating is how the body regulates its internal temperature, however some sweat more than others. The medical term for the condition is “hyperhidrosis,” and the exact cause remains unknown. Botox treats excessive sweating in a way similar to how it works on headaches and fine lines and wrinkles. It inhibits the chemical signals the nerves send to control sweating, and glands are subsequently unable to receive the signals they require to produce sweat.
To determine if you’re a candidate for Botox in this regard, you must have experienced serious underarm, palm, or foot sweating to the point where it interferes with your life.
Injections take 10 to 20 minutes, and require no downtime. In other words, you could receive treatment on your lunchbreak and easily return to work without issue. However, you should avoid intense exercise on treatment day.
You’ll notice a reduction in how much you sweat in the weeks after you receive the injections. Keep in mind that Botox injections do not work as well for palm sweating, with the procedure also more painful.
