Botox Injection for Sweaty Glands

Botox Injection for Sweaty Glands

Everybody wants to look neat, clean and fresh at all times in the competitive world of today. You cannot afford to have messy hair, sweaty arms and untidy clothes especially in the professional arena as people do judge a book by its cover. But what do you do when you have over active sweat glands especially under your armpits? It can be a huge problem to feel comfortable while interacting with others. You may have tried conventional methods of getting rid of this problem such as the use of deodorant sticks, talcum powders, even keeping tissues between your underarms but none of these actually work. You’re still left with water works making sweat patches on your shirt and you feel like a human fountain.
But worry not, in the 21st century medical experts have a solution to everything. Now you have the option of putting an end to sweaty glands as Botox injections for sweaty glands in Dubai is an option readily available for you. Botox injections have conventionally been used to vanish wrinkles and tighten skin but they work equally well at putting an end to sweaty glands.
Medically known as axillary hyperhidrosis, this condition is quite common. The function of sweat is to regulate your body’s temperature but in severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating greatly exceeds the body’s normal requirements for cooling and only puts the effected person in an unpleasant situation.

So how does Botox work?

Injecting Botox in your underarms paralyses the muscles responsible for causing sweat and makes you sweat free. A required quantity of Botox acts as an inhibitor for the release of the neurotransmitter that causes sweat production. During a Botox session, small amounts of toxins are injected into the effected region to paralyze the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. This blocks the chemical transmitters released from these nerves that cause excessive sweating.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

Botox works for a considerable amount of time but which is less than a year. Usually from 3 to 6 months. And the injection of Botox in the armpit area can be effective for about 4 to 6 months at a time

What are the possible side effects of Botox?

Like any cosmetic surgery procedure, Botox has its side effects too. However, some people face them while others don’t and it depends upon the quantity used in the procedure and the skill of the doctor. These could include problems swallowing, speaking or breathing due to weakening of associated muscles. You will be at higher risk if these problems are pre-existing prior to the injection. Another possible side effect is the spread of toxins. The effect of Botox may cause double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, change in voice etc. The good news is that there has not been a confirmed serious case of toxin spread when Botox has been used with a recommended dose to treat excessive underarm sweating.

What precautions can be taken with the use of Botox?

Do not use Botox if:

  • You are allergic to any of the ingredients in Botox
  • If you’ve had an allergic reaction to any other Botox products such as Myobloc or Dysport.
  • If you have a skin infection at the planned injection site
  • If you have any muscle of nerve conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lambert Eaton syndrome.
