Hyperhidrosis can be a frustrating and embarrassing condition. It occurs when the sweat glands are overactive and produce too much sweat – creating noticeable perspiration that often leads to sweat marks in clothing.
At Boston Medical Aesthetics, we offer Botox as a solution for people who suffer from hyperhidrosis. Botox is an effective, long-lasting solution for preventing embarrassing sweat stains under the arms and staying dry, cool, and confident.
Your Botox treatment will be performed by our board-certified nurse practitioner, Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC. She will work with you to determine the correct amount of Botox for your needs as well as the best placement for your Botox injections.
Before your procedure, the treatment areas will be numbed with ice. A numbing cream may also be used to ensure your comfort. Once you have been prepped, Jennifer will administer the Botox injections carefully and precisely. This takes only a few minutes and you can go back to your regular routine immediately. There is no downtime required after your Botox injections. You should notice reduced sweating in 4 or 5 days, with the final results occurring in about 14 days. The longevity of results varies from person to person, but most people can expect to stay dry for 6 to 12 months. Additional follow-up treatments can then be performed to keep you sweat-free and comfortable.
Botox injections are an excellent option for treating hyperhidrosis in Boston, MA. Botox has been used for many years as a medical and cosmetic hyperhidrosis treatment, and has more recently received FDA approval for underarm sweating. Rather than blocking the sweat glands as antiperspirants do, Botox blocks the nerve signals that tell your sweat glands to produce sweat. This stops your body from perspiring.
The benefits of Botox can be life-changing for someone who struggles with hyperhidrosis. Those who have this condition often feel embarrassed by their sweat and are frustrated by lack of effective treatment options.
Just going out in social situations can be anxiety-producing and stressful for someone with this condition. Although Botox is most beneficial for people with hyperhidrosis, even those who don’t sweat excessively can still use Botox to reduce sweat and feel more comfortable and confident.
