botox treatment

Botox is a cosmetic injectable primarily known for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but did you know it can be used to treat other issues? In addition to its cosmetic uses, it is a common treatment for hyperhidrosis – a condition that causes excessive sweating. 

At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre in Spring, TX, we offer Botox treatments to help patients reduce sweating. Keep reading to find out how it works.

How Does Botox Reduce Sweating?

When injected into targeted areas, Botox helps to inhibit the production of sweat by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that stimulate the sweat glands, effectively reducing – or even eliminating – sweat production in that location for several months. 

Commonly targeted areas include the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet. Botox is approved by the FDA for the treatment of hyperhidrosis and our skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph M. Perlman, is well-versed in administering the injectable for this purpose.

Why Treat Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis can be an embarrassing and frustrating condition to deal with. It can negatively impact a person’s confidence and self-esteem, as excessive sweating can occur even in situations where it is not warranted, such as in cool temperatures or when you are inactive. 

Traditional methods of managing excessive sweating, like antiperspirants or medication, may offer some relief but often fall short of providing a long-lasting solution.

What to Expect During & After Treatment

During your procedure, we will inject a small amount of Botox into the targeted area using a fine needle. The treatment is relatively quick and minimally invasive, with most patients experiencing little to no discomfort. 

The effects of a single Botox treatment in reducing sweating can last for several months, and repeat treatments may be necessary to maintain the desired results. 

After your treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort or bruising, but these side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own within a few days. 

The full effects of the Botox treatment will be noticeable within 1 to 2 weeks, and the results can last from 4 to 12 months, depending on the individual and the severity of their hyperhidrosis.
