Botox Hyperhidrosis Phoenix
Don’t Sweat Botox!
How Botox in Arizona and Ulthera can Treat Excessive Perspiration.
Are you hesitant to raise your hand in a meeting or at school because you’re afraid people will notice your excessive sweating? Do you have to change your shirt during the day because of excessive sweating? Do you feel self-conscious because of stained armpits or sweaty palms?
You’re not alone. According to US statistics it is estimated that approximately 2.8 % of the American population suffers from excess sweating, also known as Hyperhidrosis.
These are some of the warning signs that you may have Hyperhidrosis:
- You change your clothes several times a day.
- You carry extra deodorants, towels, or clothes to help hide your underarm sweating.
- You have tried “extra strength” deodorants, medications, or alternative treatments to cut down your perspiration.
- You spend a portion of your day dealing or thinking about severe underarm sweating?
- You consider your underarm sweating barely tolerable and it frequently interferes with your daily activities.
- You consider your underarm sweating intolerable and it always interferes with your daily activities.
A new option for excessive sweating is Ulthera. Normally Ulthera in Arizona treats wrinkles by tightening skin but it also stops sweating quite effectively. Ulthera uses a high concentration of ultrasound energy that interferes with the body’s sweat gland production.
Botox™ Arizona is a household name for wrinkle reduction, but few know that Botox™ has many medical uses. A common treatment for severe underarm sweating is Botox™. The prescribing information for Botox™ states that treatments can last up to 200 days. BOTOX™ controls the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines and deodorants aren’t effective. It works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When your sweat glands don’t receive their normal chemical signals, the sweating ceases.
BOTOX™ injections are expected to temporarily stop excessive sweat production in treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere in the body unless that area is treated. Patients do not need to worry about sweat backing up in their body or causing other problems. The treated sweat glands, quite simply, are “turned off” by the BOTOX™ injections do not produce sweat so there is no issue.
When will I know if I need another treatment?
When Botox™ reacts with the sweat glands it has a dramatic impact on perspiration. These effects will last anywhere from a few months up to a year or more! You will know when the time is right for another treatment. Our clinical staff will recommend a treatment strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible results with BOTOX™ treatment for sweating.
What if I decide to stop treatment?
If you decide not to have further treatment, your sweating will gradually return to its pre-treated state. The effects of BOTOX™ ® treatment will gradually wear off, and your underarm sweating will resume.
What is Severe Primary Axillary Hyperhidrosis?
Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis is severe underarm sweating, a condition that can be treated with Botox™.
Will my insurance cover Botox™ treatment of my excessive sweating?
Unlikely, but sometimes this treatment can be covered with your insurance. In severe cases we can use the CPT code J0585 when billing insurance plans for Botox™ treatment of excessive sweating. Typically it costs about $900 for adequate treatment of Hyperhidrosis with Botox™.
