Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, can be a frustrating and embarrassing problem for many people. While there are several potential causes of excessive sweating, there are also treatment options we offer at our two medical spas. One of the most effective treatments for excessive sweating in the underarms and hands is Botox. Learn more about how our Botox treatment can help reduce sweat and improve your quality of life.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating beyond what is necessary to regulate body temperature. It can occur in various parts of the body, including the underarms, hands, feet, and face. This condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, and certain medications. Hyperhidrosis can be a source of embarrassment and discomfort for those who suffer from it, but there are effective treatment options available.
How Botox works to reduce sweat
Botox works by blocking the signals that stimulate the sweat glands, reducing the amount of sweat produced in the treated area. When injected into the underarms or hands, Botox can provide relief from excessive sweating for several months. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, with most patients experiencing little to no discomfort. Results can be seen within a few days and can last up to six months before a follow-up treatment is needed.
What to expect during the procedure
Our Botox procedure for excessive sweating in the underarms or hands is quick and relatively painless. The Botox will then be injected into multiple points in the affected area using a very fine needle. Most of our patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure. After the injections, you may experience some mild swelling or bruising, but this should subside within a few days. Results can be seen within a few days and can last up to six months before a follow-up treatment is needed. At Morpheus, we know this treatment can be life changing for some of our clients.
Post-treatment care and results
After receiving Botox injections for excessive sweating in the underarms or hands, it is important to avoid strenuous activity and excessive heat for at least 24 hours. This will help prevent any potential complications or side effects. We may also advised you to avoid alcohol and certain medications that can increase sweating. As mentioned before, results from our treatment can be seen within a few days and can last up to six months before a follow-up treatment is needed. Many of our Morpheus patients report a significant reduction in sweating and an improvement in their quality of life.
Potential side effects and risks to consider
While Botox is generally considered safe for treating excessive sweating, there are potential side effects and risks to consider. These can include temporary muscle weakness, injection site pain or bruising, and allergic reactions. In rare cases, the toxin can spread to other areas of the body and cause more serious complications. It is important to discuss any concerns or medical conditions with your Morpheus provider before undergoing Botox treatment.
