BOTOX® is a quick, effective solution for those with the bothersome and embarrassing condition of excessive sweating, according to Dr. Mark H. Schwartz.
February 2, 2014 (Newswire.com) - BOTOX® has been used to diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines for more than a decade, but many are unaware of its other cosmetic uses. The injectable is also beneficial in treating excessive sweating, according to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark H. Schwartz.
BOTOX® works by relaxing the contraction of muscles by blocking nerve impulses, paralyzing the muscle. This is how it makes crows feet and the "11s" — lines that form as furrows between the eyebrows — smooth out and remain wrinkle-free for months, Dr. Schwartz explains.
The ability to block chemical signals from reaching muscle receptors also makes BOTOX perfect for treating hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by abnormally excessive sweating in the underarm area that even heavy-strength antiperspirants are unable to alleviate. Severe sweating often leads to physical discomfort, embarrassment and self-consciousness, but BOTOX® injections offer a quick, simple and easy solution.
During this procedure, BOTOX® is precisely injected into the sweat glands and the surrounding muscles of the armpit area using an ultrafine needle. Within a few days after the injection, the sweat glands will be unable to receive chemical signals, and the severe sweating will be stopped.
The patient's sweat gland will then be unable to perspire in the areas treated with BOTOX®, and the sweat will not get backed up or show up elsewhere — the sweat will simply is not be produced. Results from armpit injections typically last for three to six months, after which point patients can receive follow-up injections.
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved, quick and safe as a way to block severe sweating, and it doesn't impact the rest of the body's ability to naturally produce sweat. At Dr. Mark Schwartz's NYC practice, the BOTOX® for underarms procedure takes only about 10-20 minutes.
