Sweating is a normal function of your body to help you regulate your temperature after a hard workout or when you are outside on warm days. If you consistently experience noticeable sweating when you are at rest or stressed, you may have hyperhidrosis. This excessive sweating condition can be embarrassing and physically uncomfortable. Botox® injections known for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles are able to decrease sweating in various parts of the body. Here is how Botox injections can help you stop excessive sweating to improve your quality of life.
How Botox Hyperhidrosis Treatment Works
In hyperhidrosis, an overactive nervous system triggers sweat glands to continually work unnecessarily to cool the body. Botox hyperhidrosis treatment temporarily paralyzes the signals sent by these sweat glands to help stop excessive sweating. You will still be able to sweat in other areas that are untreated. The injection process takes less than an hour with minimal downtime. For sensitive areas, a numbing cream can be applied first to relieve any discomfort.
How Long Does Botox Treatment for Excessive Sweating Last?
Botox hyperhidrosis treatment can take up to two weeks to experience optimal results. The results you can achieve depends on the number of treatments and your body’s reaction. If you are getting Botox treatments for the first time, you may need a follow-up injection. Botox injections can relieve excessive sweating for around 6 to 12 months.
