Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
At Skin Care By Design, we treat primary hyperhidrosis using Botox Cosmetic® for precisely the underarm areas. The FDA has approved Botox Cosmetic® for the use of treating excessive underarm sweating safely.
How does Botox Cosmetic® work to alleviate excessive sweating?
Botox Cosmetic® in Tucson, AZ is a highly purified protein that blocks messages between the sweat glands and the nerves that control them. Overstimulation of sweat glands is the contributing factor to excessive perspiration. Botox blocks the release of the chemical that stimulates the nerves controlling the sweat glands.
Time and Recovery
The effects of Botox Cosmetic® injections for hyperhidrosis in Tucson can take effect three to seven days after your appointment and can last several months. We recommend that injections be repeated two or three times a year to maintain results. The use of Botox Cosmetic® for the treatment of excessive underarm sweating is safe and FDA approved. Side effects are generally limited to the injection site and may include slight swelling or bruising.
How much does it cost?
For the complete treatment of both underarm areas, it requires approximately 100 total units of Botox®. At Skin Care by Design, we only charge $10 per unit.
