Stepping outside now – even for a moment – is a clear indication that this summer will be HOT. With heat comes sweating, and now Precision Skin Institute is proud to help you combat embarrassing underarm sweating with Botox treatments!
For those who suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweating, summer is the worst season of them all. The medical condition affects about a million people in the U.S. If you are one of these people – Precision Skin Institute is here for you!
Back in 2004, the FDA approved Botox, most commonly used to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles, for the treatment of this common but very uncomfortable and annoying sweating condition. Botox injections, can safely reduce underarm sweat for up to two years.
How does it work?
OnabotulinumtoxinA is a natural, purified protein with the ability to temporarily block the secretion of the chemical that is responsible for “turning on” the body’s sweat glands, as reported by the International Hyperhidrosis Society. By blocking, or interrupting, this chemical messenger, botulinum toxin “turns off” sweating at the area where it has been injected. Botox injections are very shallow, meaning that the medicine is injected just below the surface of the skin, where it remains.
Aside from the obvious unappealing sweat stains, there are few other downsides to suffering from excessive underarm sweating. This includes a limitation of fabrics you can use, high dry cleaning bills and an incessant search for prescription and nonprescription products that cost time and money.
Trust us, it’ll be well worth it to do away with the latter and not have to worry about ruining a nice shirt the next time you get dress. Botox for underarm sweating will start working in your favor in just a couple of weeks after your first treatment, and will usually last up to six months. As for pain? Not to worry. The treatment is a well-tolerated 20-minute procedure that begins with preparing the area with numbing cream. Once the skin is numb, we use ice packs on the targeted area throughout the injection of Botox with tiny needles.
Precision Skin Institute is here to provide you with comprehensive, cutting-edge and compassionate care for you and your skin. We are here to address this condition that you have been suffering with and are prepared to help you conquer it.
