Do you feel as though you sweat too much or at the most inopportune times? JAVAN offers Botox as an effective solution for a condition called Hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. Although primarily a physical burden, hyperhidrosis can deteriorate quality of life from psychological, emotional, and social perspective.
How do Botox injections work?
Botox works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. In people with hyperhidrosis, however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.
When you receive Botox injections directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, your overactive nerves are essentially paralyzed. When your nerves can’t signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat. However, Botox only prevents sweating in the specific area where it’s injected.
What to expect after treatment
You can resume your normal activities immediately after receiving Botox injections. It will take between two and seven days for you to stop sweating in the treated area. It can take two weeks for total dryness.
The effects of Botox are temporary, which means you’ll need more injections in the future. For underarm sweating, dryness can last anywhere from four to fourteen months. Results may not last as long for the hands and feet, and you may need to repeat your treatment in about six months.
About two weeks after your treatment you will see the full effects of the Botox.
Botox is a highly effective treatment for excessive sweating. For many people, it drastically improves their quality of life.
