Luckily, one way to tackle noticeable underarm sweat or sweaty hands is through BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® injectable treatments.
How does Botox Help with Excessive Sweat?
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® injectable treatments are commonly known and used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give you a more youthful skin. However, Botox is a great way to reduce or eliminate excessive sweating in your underarms or even your hands.
When injected with an ultrafine needle directly into the muscle of treated areas, neurotoxins, such as BOTOX® & Dysport® temporarily halt the muscle activity that causes sweating, just as it relaxes the facial muscles to smooth out wrinkles for several months. The sweating will resume after a few months, when the injectable wears off and will need regular treatment.
The Mayo Clinic also listed ways to treat hyperhidrosis:
- Prescription antiperspirant (Some with aluminum chloride)
- Prescription creams
- Nerve-blocking medications
Any Side Effects?
BOTOX® and Dysport® have proven histories of safe use, but side effects can occur such as swelling, bleeding, bruising and itchiness at the injection site. Your injector will strongly recommend no rubbing or massaging the treated area, as well as, no exercise after treatment for at least 24 hours. This will help the neurotoxin stay in place and prevent it from moving elsewhere.
An allergy test will be performed during your consultation, and your medical history, goals, and expectations will be discussed to determine if neurotoxins are right for you.
