About BOTOX for Hyperhidrosis at Versailles Medical Spa
Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be an embarrassing condition. It is caused when nerve endings, descending from the brain, respond to stress by stimulating the sweat glands in the armpits, hands, and feet.
Are you constantly embarrassed by that inevitable wet patch under your arm?
Botox is not just for wrinkles, but it is also used for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) of the underarms and hand. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. Botox is very effective (about 80-90% reduction in sweating) for hyperhidrosis. You no longer have to dread those social engagements or business meetings any longer.
Botox® treatments help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
The amount of Botox needed is determined by assessing the area that needs to be treated. Results in most patients last about 6 months. This treatment is not a cure for hyperhidrosis and your symptoms will return gradually as the Botox is metabolized by your body, however most patients who suffer from excessive under arm sweating are thrilled with the results and return once or twice a year for maintenance.
