Sweating is a normal physiologic response generated by the body. It is triggered due to exposure to excessive heat or when an individual is involved in vigorous physical activity. This physiologic response is completely natural - In fact, it is deemed a sign of a healthy body. However, it may become problematic when it happens excessively, leading to strong odors, dehydration, & even infections at times.

If you are someone who suffers from excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, and are looking for an effective solution to this problem - Syra Aesthetics offers just the right solution for you in the form of Underarm Botox.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Excessive sweating, which is medically termed as “Hyperhidrosis”, is a debilitating condition that affects around 3% of the US population. Sweating is a normal bodily response and is crucial in regulating the temperature of the body.

Hyperhidrosis is when the body produces an excessive amount of sweat even in the absence of stimuli like heat and activity. This sweat creates a breeding ground for bacteria that produces strong and unpleasant odors, and might lead to infections as well. This can also lead to dehydration, and is also the cause of social embarrassment where it may cause individuals to change their clothes too frequently or abstain from being a part of social groups and gatherings.

The Science Behind Axillary Hyperhidrosis

The exact mechanism as to why excessive armpit sweating happens is still unclear. It is suggested that the sympathetic nervous system that controls sweating works in a faulty manner and may cause too much neurotransmitter production that eventually activates the sweat glands and causes excessive sweating.

Genetics have been known to play a huge role in the development of axillary hyperhidrosis, and most individuals have a family history of this disorder. Environmental triggers, like stress, anxiety, and strong emotions, may also trigger excessive sweating, which is why this condition is severely socially debilitating.

Botox Against Axillary Hyperhidrosis

Just like many other conditions, Axillary Hyperhidrosis is also amenable to treatment with botox, and it has been observed that botox causes an 87% decrease in armpit sweating

Botox was approved for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis in 2004 by the FDA, and since then has helped a large number of people with axillary hyperhidrosis. Botox is essentially botulinum toxin that impairs neurotransmitter release and eventually halts nerve signals from being dissipated. In the situation of axillary hyperhidrosis, botulinum toxin impairs the release of acetylcholine, which in turn prevents the sweat glands in the axilla from being activated and releasing sweat.

How it Works?

Our aestheticians are certified and well equipped to perform axillary botox. After prepping, disinfecting, and numbing the axillary skin, botox is simply injected into the skin, which concludes the procedure.

This procedure is quick, minimally invasive, and clients experience no pain at all, apart from the prick of the injection, when injecting the botox solution. The exact dose of botox that is required for the injectable varies from person to person and also varies based on the severity of the hyperhidrosis.

After getting armpit botox at Syra Aesthetics, clients are generally advised to keep the axillary area clean to prevent the development of infections. Application of topical agents like anti-perspirants and deodorants is not discouraged, but instead clients are advised to apply these agents a few hours after the procedure.

Clients should also abstain from excessive heat exposure and rigorous physical activity for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Most clients need a few sessions before results are visible and they start to notice normal or reduced sweating and odor production. Once the effect is in place, it can last for around 12-15 months, and clients may choose to come into the clinic again and get the botox redone.

Botox for armpit sweating is an extremely safe procedure. The good thing is that not only does botox work for armpit sweating, but for other areas too, which experience excessive sweating like palms, soles, or the forehead.

Getting out of socially embarrassing situations due to excessive sweating has never been easier!
