Summer is right around the corner! The temperatures are rising and it’s going to be hot! The last thing you want is embarrassing sweat stains. We have a solution for that. Here at Summit Medical Spa, we offer neurotoxin injections, commonly known as Botox®, that can help with underarm sweating.
How does it work?
Botox can help reduce underarm sweating by blocking the nerve signals that stimulate the sweat glands in the underarms. When injected into the affected area, Botox temporarily paralyzes the nerves that control sweat production in the sweat glands. This reduces the amount of sweat that is produced in the treated area.
The procedure for getting Botox under the arms is similar to other Botox injections. A healthcare professional will use a fine needle to inject the Botox into several areas of the underarm. The injections may cause some temporary discomfort, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated. The effects of Botox typically start to be noticeable within a few days.
Is it Safe?
Botox is a safe and effective treatment for underarm sweating, and it has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this purpose.
It’s important to note that Botox is a medical procedure and should only be administered by a licensed healthcare professional. Patients considering Botox for underarm sweating should consult with their doctor to determine if it is an appropriate treatment option for their individual needs.
How long will the results last?
The duration of the results of Botox under the arms can vary depending on the individual. On average, the effects can last for several months. In clinical trials, Botox injections for underarm sweating have been shown to provide a significant reduction in sweat production for up to six months.
However, the duration of the effects can depend on several factors, including the individual’s metabolism, the dosage of Botox injected, and the severity of the condition being treated. In some cases, the effects may last for longer or shorter periods of time.
It’s important to note that Botox is not a permanent solution for underarm sweating. Once the effects of the treatment wear off, the sweating may return. Patients who are interested in maintaining the results of their Botox injections for underarm sweating will need to receive additional treatments as needed.
How many units will I need?
The amount of Botox required for underarm sweating can vary depending on the individual’s needs and the severity of the condition. In general, the recommended dosage for treating underarm sweating with Botox is between 50 and 100 units per underarm.
The exact dosage will depend on factors such as the size of the treatment area, the patient’s weight, and the extent of the sweating. During the consultation, a licensed healthcare professional will evaluate the patient’s individual needs and determine the appropriate dosage for the treatment.
