Botox® For Hyperhidrosis

Botox® is commonly used for a range of cosmetic enhancements including the softening of frown lines, forehead lines, and crows feet. It is an effective and predictable way for those looking to check the development of new lines in the face that arise as an effect of the aging process. At The Kaga Institute, we use Botox® to help provide relief from hyperhidrosis.

Procedure

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that produces excessive sweating. Botox® injections are used to ease hyperhidrosis by injecting the botox directly where you commonly sweat. When Botox® hits those nerves, they are essentially paralyzed, thus no more sweating.

Benefits

Botox® injections can help relieve hyperhidrosis as well as soften frown lines, forehead lines, and crows feet.

FAQs

Botulinum Toxin treatments are quick, simple, and non-surgical procedures. During treatments, a small amount of the drug is injected into specific facial muscles with a very fine needle. Treatments generally take around 10 minutes. Typically any pain is minimal and brief. No anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately. It is essential to follow the aftercare instructions.

Generally, people start to see results within 3 to 4 days of their treatment, and it can take from 10 to 14 days for full results to be visible. The effects of the treatments usually last 3 to 6 months and gradually decrease over time. If you have regular treatments, the effects may last longer.

Regular treatments may help the longevity of the treatment’s effects. In addition, regular treatment may help reduce static wrinkles (those present even when your face is at rest).
