What is Botox ?
Botox (Botulinum toxin) is a protein produced by the the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It relaxes muscle by temporary block nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles.
The cosmetic effect of Botox was first documented as early as 1989 and was approved by the FDA in 2002. It is now regular used by many, both male and female, as it is less intrusive and less artificial in appearance, than traditional form of treament such as plastic surgery.
Prior the treatment : Numbing cream can be applied at the treated area for 20-30 minutes before in order to make the procedure as comfortable as possible, although some patients prefer not to . Please be advised that for underarm treatments, we will require the area to be freshly shaved or the hairs to be trimmed to a length of 1cm long
The treatment : The actual procedure takes about 20 to 25 minutes and is relatively straightforward. A series of small Botulinum toxin injections are injected to the relevant areas through a very fine needle
Post treatment : Simply avoid touching, rubbing or applying anything on the treated area for 4 hours to prevent infection and spreading of the medicine. Also, it is recommended not to exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. Specific instructions will be given to you on the day of treatment by our Clinic Coordinator
When will I start feeling the results and how long does it last?
You will start seeing and feeling the results at about 1-2 weeks after having the treatment.
The results will last up to 201 days or 6-7 months. Your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment.
It is recommended to have the treatment every 6 months to receive the best possible results. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you.
What if I decide to stop having the treatment?
If you decide not to have further treatment, your sweating will gradually return to its pre-treated state. The effects of the treatment will gradually wear off, and your underarm sweating will resume.
Where does the sweat go?
Your sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because the sweat simply is not produced in the treated areas. Remember, the rest of your body is free to produce moisture normally.
Is Botox treatment right or me?
When antiperspirants can not control symptoms of your severe sweating, Botox may be able to help. Our botox specialist doctor can help you to decide if this treatment is right for you.
In order to make the right treatment decision, you should tell your the doctor about all of your medical conditions.
