Sweating is an entirely normal part of the human experience. Sweating helps regulate your internal body temperature and cleanses out any unwanted toxins. However, too much sweat can lead to frustrations in everyday life. Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a condition in which the sweat glands produce too much perspiration in one or multiple areas of the body. While Hyperhidrosis affects 1-3% of the population, it can hinder a person’s life if excessive sweating gets in the way of everyday activities or causes you to detach from social activities with your friends or family. If this is the case, Skin Deep NYC New York Botox could be the solution you’re missing.
Typically, patients use prescription antiperspirants and medications to help combat their Hyperhidrosis. However, these treatments don’t always help. Luckily, the FDA has approved the use of Botox in treating Hyperhidrosis. As a matter of fact, New York Botox has proven to be one of the most popular forms of non-invasive treatments on the market. Using Botox for sweating is an effective treatment because the botulinum toxin in Botox essentially blocks the nerve signals in your body that produces excess sweat. While paralyzing the neurotransmitters, your body can learn to regulate sweating at a standard rate. The simple procedure has shown remarkable results in many patients who suffer from excessive sweating. In fact, studies report that patients who receive Botox treatment for their Hyperhidrosis have an increase in their emotional and physical well-being, feel more comfortable in social and occupational circumstances, and see a reduction in their limitations to various activities. There’s an overall high satisfaction rate. However, it’s essential to consult your primary doctor if you’re interested in trying New York Botox because some forms of Hyperhidrosis are because of underlying medical conditions. You’ll also want to do extensive research on Med Spas and clinicians in your area before proceeding with your Botox treatments.
The injections are skin-deep and performed with the smallest needle, and we use topical numbing cream to ensure little discomfort. Many patients get injections under their arms and have little to no side effects apart from slight bruising, swelling, or tenderness. However, patients who receive injections in their hands or feet have experienced more pain due to the large number of nerve endings in both areas. Overall, patients experience little to no pain, and treatment day shouldn’t last longer than a few hours. You should be able to resume regular activity after your treatment.
Can you sweat after botox?
Because we’re targeting excessive sweating, a big question we get is, can you sweat after Botox? The short answer is yes, but don’t force yourself to sweat. Results for your first injections won’t be immediate, but you’ll start to see them anywhere between 24 hours and five days. Sometimes it takes up to ten days or two weeks for total dryness. The Botox injections work with and against your body to help regulate your sweating. Still, if you go for a workout after your initial injections, you risk metabolizing the Botox at a faster rate or the Botox migrating to a different part of your body that you didn’t mean to target. Avoiding working out or any strenuous activity that causes sweating for at least 24 hours is suggested as a caution. Because Botox eventually metabolizes and your nerves regenerate, you’ll need to go in for retreatment anywhere between every four to six months. Over time, you can space out your treatments as dryness will start to last longer between treatments.
