Botox® Cosmetic has several important uses beyond addressing wrinkles and other cosmetic concerns. Botox has been successfully used to treat excessive underarm sweating, restoring your confidence and sense of comfort each day. Long Branch, NJ cosmetic physician Dr. Thomas Theocharides offers this effective treatment for patients seeking relief from excessive sweating, known clinically as severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis.
What Is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition affecting both men and women where the sweat glands produce more sweat than is necessary to control your body temperature. This can result in very wet, uncomfortable underarms that stain your clothing, increase odor and cause embarrassment in both social and professional settings.
Over the counter treatment can include the use of prescription strength deodorants, but in many cases it is not sufficient.
Many people who suffer from Hyperhidrosis tell us that they get nervous because they sweat, then sweat more because they are nervous. Dr. Theocharides will discuss your personal concerns and help you to decide if Botox is the solution to your problem.
Botox Treatment: What To Expect
Treatment is generally quick, painless and will last for up to 6 months for most patients.* Dr. Theocharides will make a series of small injections under the arm with a very fine needle. You should notice a significant decrease in sweating by the fourth week.
Botox is not a cure for Hyperhidrosis and most patients will experience a gradual increase in sweating after several months. Dr. Theocharides will work with you to determine the appropriate time for a follow up treatment.
