LINE ERASER MD’s | Livingston NJ – Botox for Underarm Sweating

Focus Area: Underarm

Axillary hyperhidrosis, more commonly known as severe underarm sweating, is a medical condition in which the sweat glands become overactive. We sweat to help regulate body temperature, but hyperhidrosis causes some people to sweat more than necessary – even when it’s not hot.
Often, antiperspirants do not work well enough to control hyperhidrosis, leaving men and women feeling self-conscious about their excessive sweating.
Botox® is a proven, widely recognized treatment for the symptoms of hyperhidrosis, becoming FDA-approved in 2004.
When topical solutions fail, Botox can be injected under the armpits to temporarily block nerve signals to the sweat glands. As a result, patients experience reduced sweating.
During the procedure, about 50 units of Botox are injected into each armpit. Patients can expect to see small changes within two to four days and a noticeable difference within two weeks. As each body reacts differently to the treatment, the length of your results may vary. Typically, Botox blocks the secretion of sweat under the armpits for three to six months.
Treatment is not permanent but recurrent injections can help keep hyperhidrosis symptoms under control.
However, results can fade faster due to exercise and stress that accelerates the body’s metabolic response to Botox.

Our treatment goal of injectable neurotoxin use is to highlight your features, not stop complete movement in the face. Dr. Eisenstat in Livingston, New Jersey, will review your skin concerns, facial anatomy, and appearance goals and make recommendations that will best enhance your own natural beauty.

Treatment involves injections to precise locations in order to get the results you want. Dr. Eisenstat will cleanse your skin and will provide numbing solution to minimize discomfort. Each injection feels like a slight pinch for a few seconds. Naturopathic ointment is then applied to help with soothing and alleviate any tenderness.

Both Botox® and Xeomin® are used to treat moderate to severe facial lines and folds. However, Xeomin® is a purified form of the neuromodulator and is formulated by removing accessory proteins form the active ingredient. Xeomin® allows for wrinkle reduction but natural movement of the area.

Botox is one of the safest cosmetic treatments available today. Contrary to popular belief, the Botox protein itself is not a poison as it has been modified extensively into a pure form with a very dilute concentration.

When injected properly into the muscle, it does not enter other areas of the body. To increase the safety of this treatment, we encourage patients to only undergo Botox with an experienced provider with amazing reviews.
