While you have just put on that new beautiful dress, there are already starting to appear moist circles around your armpits. Pure frustration right? Excessive sweating is something that many people suffer from and especially as a woman this can make you pretty insecure, because you just have to speak to a large group at work or you have your first date with that very handsome man. There are many types of deodorants on the market that promise to keep perspiration in check but you really want to be sure of your case, a botox treatment can offer a solution.
For excessive perspiration in the axillary region (also called axillary hyperhidrosis), botulinum toxin is used on medical grounds. Through the treatment the perspiration in the treated area decreases and you feel dry and confident again. By injecting botox the so-called sweat signal is blocked. With a few (usually painless) injections the sweat glands are switched off. However, it is important to determine the cause of excessive sweating in advance with the treating physician. Sometimes sweating is a signal from the body that something else is going on (eg hyperthyroidism or diabetes). In most cases, however, there is no direct cause for excessive perspiration.
You usually enjoy the botox effect for 3 to 6 months before recurrence is necessary. If you suffer from excessive perspiration in the summer months, you can also consider using the treatment for this period. On the day of appointment it is important that the armpits are depilated. You can count on about 15-20 injections per armpit and the total treatment does not last longer than 20 minutes. Do you have questions about this treatment or do you want to schedule this treatment?
