What is Botox Cosmetic and how does it treat hyperhidrosis?
Botox Cosmetic is a prescription neurotoxin medication that is injected superficially with a tiny needle directly into underarm tissue, blocking the nerve impulse from reaching that area. As a result, the sweat glands are inactivated, and sweat is not produced in the treated area. It’s a quick, easy, and nonsurgical way to treat excessive underarm sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis. Botox Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.
Which parts of the body does Botox Cosmetic treat?
Botox Cosmetic can be used to treat severe underarm sweating. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Is Botox Cosmetic right for me?
Botox Cosmetic is a safe and effective treatment for adult men and women of all ages. It is particularly helpful for people who want to avoid invasive surgical procedures. Do not take Botox if you are allergic to botulinum toxin or any of the other ingredients in Botox. You should also not take Botox if you have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product or have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
What will happen on my Botox Cosmetic treatment day?
The Botox Cosmetic injection process takes about 15 minutes depending on how much Botox will be injected. Some patients report that being injected with Botox Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your skin care specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
After your Botox Cosmetic treatment, you can immediately resume regular activities.
How many Botox treatment sessions will I need?
Botox Cosmetic lasts up to four months, and most patients receive another treatment as soon as they begin to experience the return of their symptoms.
How soon will I see the results of Botox Cosmetic and how long does it last?
You will begin to notice a gradual and cumulative decrease in sweating within a week after your Botox Cosmetic treatment. Results will last up to four months.
