Hyperhidrosis Botox Treatment in Wheat Ridge, Colorado
Severe sweating can be a troublesome and embarrassing
condition. Botox injections can treat excessive underarm sweating, known as severe
primary axillary hyperhidrosis. Treatment is a simple in-office procedure which
involves multiple injections in your underarm skin to target your sweat glands.
The Botox prevents nerve signals from triggering the release of chemicals which
cause your sweat glands to release perspiration.
How Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis is performed
Botox injections are administered in your dermatologist’s
office, and usually take about 15 to 20 minutes. Your doctor will numb your
underarms with a topical anesthetic and inject the Botox into the skin. Most
treatments will take about 15 to 20 injections for each underarm.
Recovery and results
You can resume your regular activities right
after treatment, but you might have some temporary discomfort or bleeding from
the injections. It can take about five to seven days for the Botox to take full
effect. Most people report an 80 to 90 percent reduction in underarm sweat,
which lasts for about 6 to 8 months. You can get additional Botox injections
after this time to maintain optimum results.
