How Does Botox Affect Sweating Treatment?

Sweating (hydrosis) is a natural metabolic function controlled by the autonomic (involuntary) nervous system that transmits to the muscles and glands, keeping body temperature, water and salt content in balance.

The human body has between two and five million sweat glands that secrete viscous/smelly and clear/odorless sweat. Sensory stimuli (fear, excitement, stress, anger) and/or heat stimuli (hot external environment, intense physical activity, hormones) produced in the brain are transmitted to the sweat glands by the sympathetic nervous system, a subsystem of the autonomic nervous system, and the sweat glands react and produce fluid.

A high level of response by the sweat glands leads to excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). Excessive sweating (secondary hyperhidrosis) can be an indicator of hyperthyroidism, diabetes, hypoglycemia, menopause, Parkinson's, infection, heart failure, respiratory failure, obesity or psychological disorders. However, uncontrolled and excessive sweating can also be seen in people with no health problems (idiopathic localized hyperhidrosis).

Although different methods are applied for the treatment of excessive sweating, the most effective and common treatment is the treatment with Botox application.

When impulses are transmitted by the nervous system, a chemical called acetylcholine is released from the nerve endings. Acetylcholine attaches to receptors on the sweat glands and stimulates them. The receptors stimulated by acetylcholine make the sweat glands work and secrete fluid.

Botox, a purified protein-containing toxin derived from Clostridium Botulinum bacteria in a laboratory environment, blocks nerve endings by preventing the nerves in the area where it is injected from releasing acetylcholine, weakens sweat glands, inhibits impulses and fluid production.

How is Armpit Botox performed?

The fluid produced by the sweat glands is initially odorless and acidic. With the effect of time, heat and micro organic activities of the body, the acidic liquid turns into ammonia, which contains a base structure. This transformation causes sweat odor.

In areas other than the genital area and armpits, the number of glands secreting clear sweat is ten times higher than the number of glands secreting viscous sweat, so they suppress viscous sweat. In the armpit, since there are equal numbers of viscous sweat glands and clear sweat glands, the glands secreting viscous sweat become dominant and the sweat produced becomes odorous. In addition, the armpit area has a structure where bacteria can multiply rapidly due to its texture.

Since underarm sweat glands are glands that react to both sensory stimuli and heat stimuli and produce odorous sweat, the most common complaint of excessive sweating is underarm sweating. In addition, the marks caused by sweating can be seen by other people and cause discomfort. Most of the time, even antiperspirants and anti-odor products are not a solution, so medical solutions are preferred.

Patients who present with the complaint of underarm sweating are first examined to determine whether there is a secondary disease that causes sweating. Because secondary hyperhidrosis can be terminated with the treatment of the disease that causes sweating. If uncontrolled and excessive sweating (idiopathic localized hyperhidrosis) is detected even though there is no health problem, a starch-iodine test is performed to determine the sweating area and the area where botox will be applied.

Blood thinners and alcohol should be stopped at least 5 days before Botox application. Epilation and waxing should not be done 15 days before and after the application, and shaving should be done 3 days before. Use of cream, deodorant, perfume in the last 24 hours; consumption of hot liquids in the last 3 hours should be stopped.

In underarm botox application; Botox, which is injected into the sweat glands under the skin with the help of cannula or fine-tipped needles from different points over a period of 15-20 minutes, weakens the sweat glands and allows them to relax. Since the nerve endings are blocked, sweat glands do not react to stimuli, they cannot secrete fluid and the problem of excessive sweating is eliminated. No pain is felt during and after the injection, only mild burning and soreness, which can be reduced by applying ice therapy (cold compress) to the injection areas.

After the application, hospitalization is not required and daily life is continued. You can return to work on the same day. However, in the first few days, heavy activities that require excessive force and increase the body's heat level and extremely hot environments should be avoided, and the botoxed areas should not be rubbed.

How Much Does Botox Treatment Prevent Sweating?

The effect of Botox, which is applied as a single session against excessive sweating, starts to be seen within a week and the desired result is obtained within approximately 2 weeks. If the result obtained within two weeks is limited, an additional dose can be applied. As with other botox applications, the effect usually lasts for 4 - 6 months, but it is also seen that it lasts up to 1 year. Repeating the application once a year helps to prolong the effect life of botox applications.

Botox against sweating, which has a very short application time, has a very high success rate. In very severe cases related to the armpit area, surgical treatment can be applied to the nerves or underarm sweat glands can be surgically removed to end excessive sweating that cannot be prevented.

Is Armpit Botox Harmful?

In Botox applications; the risk of side effects is very low. Although not very often, pain, numbness, redness, bruising, swelling, inflammation and bleeding can be seen in the area where Botox is injected. In addition, complaints such as itching, weakness, dizziness and rash have been observed in patients with allergy problems.

Underarm botox does not involve any risk if it is performed by experts and experienced people in the field. The application does not cause permanent damage to the sweat glands, only less stimulation is provided. Therefore, it does not prevent the normal functioning of metabolism.

What are the Prices for Botox Sweating Treatment?

It is not possible to give general information about the prices of sweating treatment with Botox application. Because each application includes its own special conditions. Depending on the patient's demand and need, the area and amount of botox to be applied will change, which will affect the price. Some practitioners charge standard fees according to the amount of units used, while others charge standard fees according to the application areas. In addition, the Ministry of Health considered that the written disclosure of aesthetic intervention prices would lead to unfair competition and it was deemed inconvenient to share it.

In my first meeting with Mr. Elad, I trusted him immediately. He is both a warm-blooded, friendly doctor and explains everything in detail and honestly. I am in the 1st month of my surgery. I had a bruise-free, painless process. I also already love the shape of my nose :) If you want a natural nose that is compatible with your face, Mr. Elad is the right choice. His team and himself are very interested. They do not think that the surgery is over. I can recommend my doctor with peace of mind. I thank him and his team endlessly.

When you go to him for the first interview, you will already take the day for surgery and leave :) a doctor who is so sweet and explains everything to the finest detail. I saw 1 bad comment, I think anyone who knows the deliberate Elad knows that he will not treat the patient with such a style.
