Have you ever experienced excessive underarm sweating to the extent that it has left an unsightly stain or wetness on your clothes? You may be able to benefit from hyperhidrosis treatment, which uses Botox® to reduce underarm sweating. Residents of Mission, Tx, McAllen, Edinburg, Pharr, Harlingen, Brownsville, the Rio Grande Valley, or anywhere else in South Texas can achieve great results with this treatment at RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center.
What Is Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive underarm sweating. This condition can cause discomfort and embarrassment, placing unnecessary stress on your daily life. Fortunately, hyperhidrosis can be effectively treated with Botox®, an FDA-approved treatment for excessive underarm sweating. This works by injecting the Botox® formula into the underarms, where it blocks the nerves that activate the sweat glands. As a result, patients experience a significant reduction in underarm sweating.
How Is Hyperhidrosis Treatment Performed?
Botox® for underarm sweating is an alternative treatment before resorting to more aggressive treatments such as surgery. The Botox® treatment consists of small, almost painless injections into the underarms that take less than 15 minutes to administer. We offer patients a topical anesthetic to minimize any pain or discomfort that may arise during treatment.
When Will I Notice Results From Treatment?
The results from treatment are typically noticed within two weeks of the appointment, when you will notice a decrease in underarm sweating. You can expect the results from treatment to last between six and 12 months, after which time patients are able to receive additional treatments to maintain their results.
Is There Any Downtime Associated With Botox®?
Botox®, like many other injectable treatments, is well-known for being an effective treatment that requires no downtime. After your hyperhidrosis treatment, you can resume normal activities immediately. Some patients may experience soreness or redness after treatment, but these symptoms should fade within a few days.
How Much Does Hyperhidrosis Treatment Cost?
To determine the cost of your hyperhidrosis treatment, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice.
