Sweating is an essential function of the body, helping to maintain body temperature by cooling down the surface of your skin. However, for some people, their sweat glands may become overactive and cause hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
Axillary hyperhidrosis, or severe underarm sweating, is a condition in which your body sweats more than needed to regulate body temperature.
The severity of hyperhidrosis depends on how it affects your quality of daily life. Skin soreness and rashes are common problems that people experience as a result of frequent or extended moisture. The condition can also cause emotional distress in some people.
If excessive sweating is affecting you physically or emotionally, you should schedule an evaluation at Woodlands Aesthetics.
Botox is a long-lasting solution for hyperhidrosis. It works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that prompt your sweat glands to produce sweat.
As a result, it helps reduce severe armpit sweating. Your body doesn’t need to worry about temperature regulation because it continues to release sweat elsewhere, such as your forehead, the palms of your hands, and the soles of your feet.
At Woodlands Aesthetics, you can expect a patient-centered approach to hyperhidrosis. Your provider tailors hyperhidrosis treatment to match your needs, desired results, and wellness goals.
While you relax in a calming setting, your provider carefully injects Botox at the treatment site using a thin needle. Depending on the severity of your hyperhidrosis, it may take up to 10-15 injections.
Botox injections typically don’t cause any pain, but if you’d like a topical numbing cream to make the process more comfortable, you may ask your provider at Woodlands Aesthetics.
Many patients who receive Botox injections for hyperhidrosis experience a significant reduction in perspiration.
You can expect to see improvements in just four weeks* after you receive Botox treatment. For some people, the final results can last up to 4-6 months*. If you start to notice the effects fade, you can return to Woodlands Aesthetics for maintenance hyperhidrosis treatments.
