DURATION OF RESULTS
It’s normal to sweat if you get hot or during exercise but excessive sweating when your body doesn’t need to cool down can be embarrassing.
Excessive sweating can happen for no obvious reason, and can cause issues when it stops you from doing your daily activities or from wearing certain clothing.
Botulinum Toxin injections work by blocking the chemical at the end of the nerves so that it cannot work on the glands, it will ‘turn off’ the sweat gland to reduce sweating. It is FDA approved to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines on the skin do not work.
+ What do I need to do prior to treatment?
Patients need to come in for the procedure with freshly shaved or trimmed hairs. We recommend avoiding antiperspirant before the appointment.
+ What should I do post treatment?
We advise avoiding antiperspirant, or applying anything to the skin the same day to prevent infection. Exercise, saunas steam rooms and sun beds must be avoided for at least 24-48 hours
+ When will I see the results?
It generally takes up to two weeks for the effects of the botox to kick in. They can last around 6 months when the excess sweating will gradually return. It is recommended to have regular treatments every 6 months for the best possible results.
+ Will I sweat more somewhere else?
No, your sweat doesn’t go elsewhere, it is simply no longer produced.
