Excessive underarm sweating, clinically called axillary hyperhidrosis, is a common problem in the US, affecting more than one million people. The condition can cause a person to sweat as much as four times more than an average person in order to regulate body temperature. With profuse underarm sweating, the individual may feel discomfort and itching, or may want to avoid social engagements.
Botox is a leading med spa injectable procedure that can be used effectively to treat axillary hyperhidrosis. The treatment has been approved by the FDA specifically for this purpose. Results with the Botox treatment program for underarm sweating can last for as long as 24 months.
Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Botox injections for both aesthetic and medical purposes. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive Botox treatments for hyperhidrosis at Motykie medical spa.
Who is an appropriate Candidate?
People who are not able to acquire relief from excessive underarm sweating with topical lotions, sprays or other anti-perspirants can make good candidates for Botox treatment. The candidate should be above the age of 18 to receive this treatment, and should have symptoms of severe sweating in the armpits.
The candidates should be aware that Botox med spa procedure to treat hyperhidrosis is only limited to the underarm area. The FDA has not approved this treatment for sweating in other parts of the body because it is not yet proven whether Botox will be a safe and effective solution for other areas.
The treatment provider should evaluate the patient’s condition of underarm sweating and their history of treatment before recommending Botox injections. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for axillary hyperhidrosis treatment.
How does it Work?
Botox is comprised of botulinum neurotoxin, which is a potent biological agent to temporarily block the communication between the nerve and muscle. When Botox injections in a precise quantity are delivered to the affected underarm area, it will immediately begin working to stop the signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.
The overactive sweat glands will soon stop working, which will bring an end to the problem of excessive underarm sweating. The excess sweat that is eliminated with this treatment does not get collected elsewhere in the body. Botox will simply stop the sweat production in the treated area. But the sweating in other areas of the body will remain as before.
In about four weeks after the Botox injections, significant reduction in underarm sweating can be noticed. Results can last for up to six months with just one treatment session of Botox. Patients can receive follow-up treatments under the guidance of a Botox expert to extend the benefits for up to two years.
It is fantastic to choose the right Botox injection provider because the neurotoxin is extremely powerful and can have adverse effects if administered in the wrong location or in wrong quantity.
