If you experience excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, you are not alone. In the United States, an estimated 7.8 million people suffer from the condition. Luckily, BOTOX® injections can make a significant difference for those challenged with the problem. In fact, the injectable is so effective that more than 20 countries around the globe have approved the use of BOTOX® for excessive underarm sweating. BOTOX® isn’t just for wrinkles anymore and has been discovered to offer safe and incredible therapeutic benefits.
Statistics Tell the Story
BOTOX® injections have a very good track record when it comes to controlling severe underarm sweating. According to the numbers, clients saw an 82 to 87 percent decrease in sweating. Generally, it takes some time after treatment to start noticing results. The results you can achieve with this treatment are temporary, but you can always come up for follow-up appointments.
Those clients who opt for regular BOTOX® injections to treat their hyperhidrosis rave about a better quality of life and an improvement in work productivity.
If you are tired of stained clothing, spending too much money on antiperspirants, or feeling embarrassed, you may be a good candidate for this treatment. A diagnosis may be required before we can administer treatments.
Quick In-Office Treatment
A member of our staff can administer BOTOX® injections to both of a client’s underarms in one visit. Following the injections, the client can return to work because there is barely any downtime. Refraining from intensive workouts is recommended that day, and sauna use is also discouraged for the first 24 hours.
Not a Cure, but a Great Solution
Your hyperhidrosis will not disappear forever from BOTOX® injections. In other words, the treatment is not a cure, but it is an excellent remedy for halting the condition for a period of time. Follow-up injections are required to maintain dryness because the sweating will return when the serum wears off. Repeated BOTOX® injections for hyperhidrosis have been found to be safe and effective for the long term.
