It seems that Botox is not just for getting rid of wrinkles anymore. At Angel Gloss Clinic of Toronto we can do many treatments with Botox; including migraine treatments, wrinkle treatments, masseter weakening, treating muscle spasms of the face, eyes, and neck, and now hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) Botox injection treatments. If you have problems with excess sweating and have tried other treatments, such as certain medications and iontophoresis, you are a good candidate for sweating treatment with Botox at Angel Gloss Clinic in Toronto.
What is Botox for Excessive Sweating?
Botox is actually a toxin called botulinum toxin A mixed into a protein that blocks the nerves in the eccrine glands that create sweat. While it does not cure hyperhidrosis, it does reduce the production of sweat for about three to six months, with some patients reporting it has worked for over a year. The FDA has signed off on the treatment of excessive sweating under the arms as well as in the hands and feet. Angel Gloss Clinic is certified by the UK to treat patients with hyperhidrosis of the armpit, but to get treatment in your hands and feet you have to go to a hospital because it can be painful and the patient may need a general anesthetic. Botox actually prevents the chemicals that make the sweat glands active.
How Long Does Botox for Hyperhidrosis Last?
One Botox treatment done by our technicians at Angel Gloss Clinic will decrease the sweating under your arms by up to 90% and can last six months to even a year or more. You will start to notice the change within a few days. The treatments can be used for heavy sweating under your arms, in your hands and feet, and on your head and face. There is very little pain, but if you choose, you can have the technician use a numbing cream on your skin before the surgery.
Is Botox for Excessive Sweating Safe?
Botox for excessive sweating in any part of the body is perfectly safe as long as it is done by a trained professional like the technicians at the Angel Gloss Center in Toronto. Since beginning the use of Botox in 1989 millions of people have been treated for excessive sweating. More than 20 countries have begun using Botox for the treatment of hyperhidrosis.
