Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
At Ohio Laser & Wellness Centers, you can receive BOTOX for excessive sweating of the underarms. Some individuals are inconvenienced by sweating that is so severe that anti-perspirants are not effective. This leads to drenched clothing at mild temperatures, causing embarrassment at work and social situations. If you suffer from excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, you may feel held back socially and in your career due to this problem. Now at Ohio Laser & Wellness Centers, BOTOX is available to put this problem to rest. You can get months of normalized or absent underarm sweating through the injection of BOTOX directly into the skin in that area. BOTOX takes effect after approximately 3 days, and is usually maximal after two weeks. It is approximately 90% effective and generally lasts about 6 months, with a range of 3 to 12 months. In a study by Hornberger et al, mean sweat production at 24 weeks was still below 50% of the preinjection level. 92% of patients were satisfied with the treatment at 4 weeks after injection. 50 units per side is the recommended starting dose. Side effects are uncommon and this amount of BOTOX is considered safe.
Radiofrequency microneedling for treating hyperhidrosis
The result of chronic, excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis impacts as much as 2-3% of the population. Neurologic, endocrine, infectious, or other unknown conditions may cause it.
At Ohio Laser & Wellness Centers, Dr. Orafu and the team can treat hyperhidrosis with radiofrequency microneedling.
Radiofrequency microneedling is a long-term, and sometimes permanent, treatment for hyperhidrosis. By using radiofrequency waves to destroy the integrity of sweat glands, the team at Ohio Laser and Wellness Centers can safely and effectively reduce the amount of sweat your body produces without causing adverse side effects.
