Axillary Hyperhidrosis, known more commonly as Excessive Sweating is a medical condition that can greatly effect one`s quality of life. Sweating is a method used to naturally cool ourselves down during exercise and warm conditions. Axillary Hyperhidrosis is caused when these sweat glands work over actively in the body. The result, excessive sweating, can negatively impact those affected by this condition but can now be treated with the use of BOTOX® injections.
Benefits and Side Effects
Side effects are rare but may include bruising or pain at the injection site. Rarely patients experience muscle weakness, aches, or increased sweating at other sites.
How Does It Work?
Using a very fine needle, the Doctor will inject a small amount of Botox into 10 to 15 places; spread apart every 1-2cm within the treated area. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes.
Is the Procedure Painful?
A slight burning sensation may be felt at the sight of the injection. There is minimal downtime after your treatment and normal activities can be resumed following treatment. Some people experience some bruising at the injection site but this will subside in a few days.
Are Multiple Sessions Required?
Yes, you may begin to notice results within a week of your treatment and results can last up to 6 months or more, depending on your body`s chemistry.
