Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which a person experiences excessive sweating without the reasons like hot temperature or nervousness. Hyperhidrosis can effectively be treated with a botox treatment.
How Does it Work?
A botox is known to be a neurotoxin and a muscle relaxant. When injected in the nerve, it paralyzes the neurotransmitter that transmits signals for stimulating the sweat glands.
Who can Go for It?
You may consider undergoing a botox treatment if;
- Your feet sweat excessively
- You don’t suffer from any neurological disease
- You don’t suffer from any condition that affects muscles or nerves
How is it Done?
The process is simple and safe but it must be performed by an expert. The treatment area is cleansed and numbed in the beginning. Although the pain caused by the injections is bearable but to avoid the discomfort, doctors apply a topical anesthetic cream. Iodine is applied to the feet which help in identifying and marking the sweat glands. Your doctor will make small injections in the marked area with a specific amount of dose.
You might experience pain and slight swelling after the injections have been made. Cold compresses can be applied to minimize the discomfort.
How to Prepare for the Treatment?
The procedure is simple. There is no long list of instructions to follow before and after the treatment, however, your doctor may instruct you to;
- Avoid using any cosmetic product at the time of treatment
- Avoid using an antiperspirant one day prior to the treatment
- Avoid taking any hot beverages or avoid exercising two hours before the treatment
- Avoid anti-allergic or muscle relaxant medications
What Results are Expected?
The effects of botox will be visible within two to three days of the treatment. You might experience side effects like swelling, bruising etc. but these effects will be subsided within one or two days after the procedure.
How Long do the Results Last?
The effects of botox can last up to one year. You will be required to undergo a follow-up session in order to retain the results.
