In this non-surgical treatment for excessive sweat Botox or botulinum toxin is injected into the problematic area. What this achieves is prevention of secretion of a chemical that activates sweat glands. This consequently prevents sweat production.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which the nerves that produce the chemical signaling sweat glands to start working are overactive. Sweat is our body’s way of cooling itself down. Whenever your body temperature rises, sweat glands are activated to combat the rising heat.
Botox temporarily paralyzes the nerves signaling for sweat production. This means that they are unable to signal to the central nervous system and so there is minimal sweat production.
This treatment works by paralyzing the nerves that emit a chemical causing sweat production. It might seem risky however it’s not. The main reason is that the effect of the procedure is temporary. So there is no big commitment. The effects will wear off on their own.
The only discomfort you might experience is from the prick of the needle. The needle, however, is very fine and so doesn’t hurt much at all. We can also use numbing agents to make you more comfortable.
No, you will need a series of injections since most of the relevant nerves in the concerned area need to be targeted.
The cost of the procedure will depend on how big the concerned area is and how many injections are administered. To find out the exact quote please visit us for a consultation.
There is no recovery period as such. You can resume your regular activities right after the procedure. You might experience some soreness after the procedure but that should subside soon. It might take about a week for the results to surface, but they will last for about a year with proper aftercare.
Please visit our clinic for a consultation and to get an exact estimate. We would be happy to answer any questions you have.
