On the face of it, Botox treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles. But there is more it has to offer. Being widely used as an anti-aging treatment, conditions like hyperhidrosis, spasms, and migraines are also treated using this neurotoxin. Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that refers to excessive sweating that remains unaffected by antiperspirants. Other than armpits areas like face, legs and feet are also injected with Botox to manage sweating.
How does it work?
Botox blocks the nerves responsible for activating the sweat glands. Individuals with hyperhidrosis, the nervous system is overactive in signaling sweat glands that result in excessive sweating. When a patient receives Botox injections directly into the area of the affected body part that sweats a lot, the overactive nerves are paralyzed. When the nerves are unable to signal sweat glands, the person doesn’t sweat. However, Botox only prevents sweating in the specific area where it’s injected and not the whole body.
How often does one need this treatment?
It can be done in just one visit and an individual can get back to work the same day. It is painless, but the doctor might prescribe icing or numbing agent to subside the pain. Studies have found that Botox is very effective in reducing sweaty palms up to 80% and it can help fight back sweating for up to five months.
