Botox can also be used for more than just relaxing wrinkles! Over the last decade, it has proven to be helpful in preventing excessive sweating, also known as Hyperhidrosis. It is typically injected under the arms, actually blocking the message from sweat glands to secrete sweat. These injections have been shown to decrease sweating by up to 87%, with results lasting 3-6 months.
Botox is one of the safest cosmetic treatments available. Long-term study results have shown that 853 treatment sessions with Botox over a 9-year period resulted in no side effects for 99% of participants.
The potential risk of Botox is allergic reactions and side effects, which are extremely rare. Some people experience headaches for a few days after getting Botox treatments. It’s important for potential clients to discuss any known skin infections, muscle or nerve conditions, known allergies, or medications during your free consultation to ensure your provider chooses the best treatment for you.
The charge for Botox, Jeuveau and Dysport wrinkle relaxers is $13/unit. Your expert provider will determine how many units is needed to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
