BOTOX® For Sweating
In most cases, it is perfectly natural to sweat. People sweat more in warm temperatures, when they exercise, or in response to situations that make them nervous, angry, embarrassed, or afraid. Excessive Sweating or Hyperhidrosis refers to any abnormal sweating, such as sweating when it’s not hot. With BOTOX® treatment from Simply Radiant, you don’t have to worry about sweating too much.
Do You Sweat Too Much?
How much a person sweats can vary depending on the temperature and activity. According to the Mayo Clinic Hyperhidrosis is defined as “when you sweat more than you might expect based on the surrounding temperature, your activity level, or stress.” Excessive sweating is not only uncomfortable it can:
- Disrupt your daily routine.
- Cause emotional distress or social withdrawal.
- Have you changing clothes several times a day.
- Make you put absorbent materials under your clothes
- Cause you to avoid certain materials or styles of clothes.
How Does Botox Stop Sweating?
Botox injections use botulinum toxin to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. We numb you, and a series of shallow injections are placed carefully around the treatment site. Botox is an FDA approved treatment to control sweat problems and has been used for this purpose for about 16 years.
What Can You Expect?
This non-surgical process does not take long, and can generally be completed in a single office visit. While some particularly sensitive people may experience a slight sting, most say that the process is virtually painless. It usually takes between 2 to 7 days for the effects of the Botox to become apparent, so it’s important to be patient. The treatment can last between 4 and 14 months, and the time between treatments often increases if you have it more than once.
