Why Wrinkles Form

Wrinkles develop over time due to a number of factors: collagen breakdown, hormonal losses, cellular changes, damage by free radicals and muscle movement among other factors. Ultimately even those who follow strict skin regimens and avoid sun exposure cannot completely avoid muscle contraction which causes creases in the skin over time.

Our facial muscles contract every time we show expression. When we raise our eyebrows in astonishment or bring them together during times of anger, we use facial muscles. As these muscles contract, the overlying skin creases and over time these lines become more pronounced causing wrinkles.

How Botox & Dysport Treats Wrinkles

Botox and Dysport are used to treat upper facial rhytids, including forehead, crow’s feet and glabellar lines. Botox and Dysport are sold by the unit as every client will require a different number of units based on the size of the muscle. Most clients do require a combination of Botox and dermal fillers. Your needs will be best addressed during a complimentary consultation with us.

Botox for Sweat Reduction

For those suffering from excessive sweating, this condition can be frustrating, embarrassing, and negatively impact daily life. The medical term for extreme sweating is hyperhidrosis. This goes beyond normal sweating due to heat, exercise or anxiety. Thankfully, effective solutions like Botox injections can reduce excessive sweating and provide relief.

What Causes Excessive Sweating?

The root cause of primary hyperhidrosis is overactivity of the sweat glands. Secondary hyperhidrosis has an underlying medical cause, like infection, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, menopause, or Parkinson’s disease. Areas most affected are the underarms, palms, soles, face, and head. Sweat glands here are controlled by the sympathetic nervous system. When nerves overstimulate the glands, sweating exceeds thermoregulation needs. The excess sweat doesn’t cool the body further.

How Does Botox Treat Excessive Sweating?

Botox, or botulinum toxin type A, is injected into the skin to temporarily disable sweat glands. Botox blocks the release of a chemical that activates the glands. By preventing stimulation, Botox dramatically reduces sweating where injected. Treatment sessions take about 10-15 minutes. Patients report significantly less sweating in 1-2 weeks. Results last approximately 3-6 months, then further injections maintain the effects.

What Are the Benefits of Botox for Excessive Sweating?

Botox injections offer several advantages:

  • Non-invasive with no surgery or downtime
  • Highly effective at reducing excess sweating, especially underarms, hands and feet
  • Long-lasting results, though not permanent
  • Repeated treatments lead to cumulative improvement
  • Covered by some insurance plans for axillary hyperhidrosis
  • Botox has a long record of safe medical use
  • Convenient, quick office appointments
  • Improves quality of life and self-confidence

Botox for Sweaty Hands, Feet and Facial Sweating

For excessive hand and foot sweating, Botox is precisely injected into the palms and soles. The feet have the highest concentration of sweat glands. Botox on palms and soles can dramatically reduce sweating.

Facial sweating can be effectively reduced with Botox injections along the hairline, forehead, around the ears, and other affected areas. This minimizes scalp, facial and neck sweating. Botox offers significant relief for those with facial hyperhidrosis.

Botox FAQs

How Long Is A Botox Treatment And How Long Does It Last?

Botox is a quick treatment with immediate results. Treatments usually take 10-15 minutes and the results last 3 to 4 months. Please note that will take anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks for the product to completely penetrate the muscle and see the results.

What Does Botox Feel Like And What Should I Expect Post Treatment?

No anesthesia is required, however we may numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Some bruising may occur at the site of injection.

What Is The Right Age To Start Botox?

Some clients like to start as young as 25 for preventative measures however most clients are in their 30’s and older. Our collagen starts to break down after the age of 35. Most people notice that their lines at this age start to become more defined and may appear even when they are not showing expression. Botox provides temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines and/ or moderate to sever lateral canthal lines (crow’s Feet).

What Is Botox?

BOTOX COSMETIC® (onabotulinumtoxin A for injection) is a sterile, form of purified botulinum neurotoxin type A complex. It is used for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines and/ or moderate to severe lateral canthal lines (crow’s feet).
