Why choose GMS to help you with your excessive sweating:
If you worry about the heat resulting in underarm shirt stains, keep your suit jacket on during business meetings “just in case,” or always carry a change of clothes to deal with embarrassing wetness, you may suffer from hyperhidrosis, more commonly called excessive sweat. With BOTOX injections, we can provide a solution to this irritating condition and reduce underarm sweat by up to 80% for as long as 6.5 months before a maintenance treatment is needed.
Your Solution to Excessive Sweating may include:
BOTOX® for Hyperhidrosis
You will notice sweat reduction within 4 weeks following treatment. Results are temporary, lasting about 201 days. Your symptoms will return gradually, at which time you will need to return for a maintenance treatment. If you think you sweat too much and sweating interferes with your daily activities, BOTOX can offer worry-free relief.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to stop underarm sweating with BOTOX? Don’t I need to sweat?
Using BOTOX to reduce excessive underarm sweating offers an effective and safe temporary solution. You have many sweat glands throughout your body; so halting sweating in the underarms will not shut off your body’s natural cooling mechanism. BOTOX does not damage or affect your sweat glands in any way; it simply stops the chemical signals. As the months after treatment pass, the BOTOX leaves your system, and the chemical signals once again begin to fire. With another treatment, you can renew your worry-free lifestyle.
How do I know if my sweating is normal or excessive?
Everyone sweats, but for some people, underarm sweating causes worry, embarrassment, and lifestyle changes. For most people, antiperspirants are enough to keep severe sweating at bay, but for some, antiperspirants just don’t do their job. Rather than comparing your sweat production to that of other people, decide whether the amount you sweat is affecting your peace of mind, and talk to us about how BOTOX can help.
How does BOTOX stop underarm sweating?
Injected into the underarm area, BOTOX blocks chemical signals sent from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. Without the chemical signals, severe sweating is reduced. Because BOTOX is injected only into the underarm area, you will continue to sweat normally on other areas of the body.
What results can I expect from getting BOTOX injections for hyperhidrosis?
A clinical study found that 81% of patients achieved a greater than 50% reduction in underarm sweating.
How long will BOTOX improve my excessive underarm sweating?
Used to control severe underarm sweating, BOTOX provides results for as long as 201 days. That’s 6.5 months!
Does BOTOX hurt?
BOTOX is injected with a fine needle, so some pricking occurs, however discomfort is minimal and subsides once the treatment is complete. You may experience soreness or swelling for a few days following treatment.
Is there anyone who should not get BOTOX?
The world’s most popular cosmetic treatment, BOTOX injections have been performed on millions of women and men worldwide with safe and effective results. Patients with certain neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects. Pregnant and nursing women should avoid getting BOTOX. Before treatment, let us know about all the medicines you take.
