Botox for excessive underarm sweating
There are a number of individuals that suffer from excessive sweating and it can seriously impact a person’s life.
Excessive sweating, medically known as hyperhidrosis, can be a disheartening condition to have. Here at Tinkable, we can offer the solution of Botox injections which can often be a life-altering solution to many clients.
Let’s take a closer look into hyperhidrosis…
Hyperhidrosis translates as excessive sweating. The fact is, everybody sweats and sweat is vital function of the body as it allows the body to lose heart, although there are some people whose bodies produce more sweat than need to control their body temperature, this is hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis can be categorised into two main types: focal hyperhidrosis and generalised hyperhidrosis. Focal hyperhidrosis will usually involve concentrated excessive sweating on the hands, feet, and underarms. Generalised hyperhidrosis affects the entire body and is less common often caused by illness or an overactive thyroid gland.
How can Botox help?
As we know, Botox is a pure preparation of a protein named Botulinum Toxin type A that is injected into the skin. Botox has been recommended to those who suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating) as well as being used to treat muscle spasms.
Small doses of Botox will be injected into the skin which essentially blocks the actions of the nerves that supply the eccrine glands, preventing the glands from producing sweat.
After Botox has blocked the nerve endings, it will be in effect until new nerve endings grow to replace the old which will be six to twelve weeks after the treatment.
During the treatment, a thin needle will inject a small amount of Botox into a number of areas that are approximately 1cm apart and spread across evenly in both armpits. Often, dye will be used with the injection for the sole purpose of identifying the areas where the sweat is most evident to direct where the injections should be placed.
A regular course of treatment will last for up to 30 minutes.
Clients should notice an improvement in their condition within a week of the treatment, however, there is the fact that each individual will have a different response to the treatment.
