Botox injections are widely popular med spa procedure to reduce facial fine lines. But the treatment can also be used for medical purposes to eliminate excessive underarm sweating or hyperhidrosis. People who have suffered discomfort or embarrassment from this condition can choose Botox injections to resolve the problem effectively.
Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides FDA approved Botox injectable treatment for excessive underarm sweating. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive this procedure at Dr. Motykie’s medical spa.
The FDA has approved Botox injections for excessive underarm sweating only for candidates who have failed to receive benefit from topical treatments such as creams, lotions and other anti-perspirants. The treatment provider should inform the patient about using Botox only when the sweating condition is severe and causing problems.
The provider may also inform the candidate about alternatives such as oral medications, aluminum salt anti-perspirants and ETS surgery. Botox continues to be a popular treatment for this condition, and the treatment provider will help the candidate make the most appropriate choice.
Results with Botox
Botox has been established as a safe and proven injectable med spa procedure for cosmetic reduction of facial aging lines as well as a medical treatment for certain eye related and neurological disorders. Similarly, the response of most patients with Botox injections for excessive underarm sweating is fairly dramatic. Results with an initial single treatment will last for about six months, and follow-up treatments can be received to extend the benefits for up to two years.
Results can vary from one patient to another in some cases because Botox treatment for underarm sweating is not an exact science. In exceptional situations, there may be no improved with Botox and an alternative solution may be necessary. As long as the patient receives this treatment at an established and qualified medical spa, the results will be safe and predictable.
Side effects typically experienced with Botox are temporary and localized to the injection site. The procedure involves little to no downtime and the patient can return to their normal routine immediately. Medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen should be avoided for at least a week prior to the Botox hyperhidrosis treatment.
The treatment provider will first numb the targeted underarm area with a topical numbing cream. A measured quantity of Botox will be injected superficially under the skin using a tiny needle. The neurotoxin in Botox will immediately start working to block the nerve’s chemical signals that stimulate the sweat glands to stop underarm sweating.
As the nerve signals are cut off, the overproduction of sweat glands in the treated area will stop. Patient will not feel any discomfort during the treatment, except an initial minor sting for a few seconds as the treatment is injected. Following the treatment, most patients will not feel any significant discomfort.
The patient should avoid lying down or massaging the underarm area for at least four hours after the Botox injections. Motykie med spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Botox.
