Dress with nothing to hide!
It can take up to a week for the Botox to start working properly. Many people may notice results sooner than that, but it is important not to expect a miraculous sweat disappearance right away.
Is there downtime with a hyperhidrosis treatment?
In most cases, there is no downtime from Botox treatments for hyperhidrosis. As with any Botox treatment, you should not massage nor apply pressure to the treated area. Additionally, for the first few hours after your injections, you should try to avoid strenuous activity. The treatment site may be a little sore and small bruises can form, but these symptoms will go away within a day or two.
Some patients may experience initial muscle weakness with this treatment, but that also goes away quickly.
Occasionally, this Botox treatment can cause flu-like symptoms, tiredness, or arm and neck aches. These symptoms are rare, and temporary, if any of these issues should disappear in a few days.
There are no severely uncomfortable sensations or effects which would affect your daily life, and complications are rare.
Ideally, you should arrive for your appointment with freshly-shaven under-arms. You will have a consultation before the treatment so to determine exactly where your sweating occurs at its worst. Your under-arms will be thoroughly cleansed to sterilize the area before any injections are given.
Finally, you will be injected with a very fine needle which will introduce the Botox to the targeted area. Each armpit will receive around fifteen injections, and the entire process takes approximately 30-45 minutes.
