Botox injection is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure. When you smile, laugh, frown, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes (crow’s feet), mouth (marionette lines), between the eyebrows and on the forehead. These wrinkles can make you look older, sad, angry, or tired. Botox is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several different uses. When used for cosmetic purposes, it is a quick, safe, and effective way to reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles without surgery and with little to no downtime and discomfort. With the help of Botox, Dr. Andreas Skarparis can give your face a younger, fresher, and rejuvenated look.
BOTOX FOR THE TREATMENT OF HYPERHIDROSIS
Botox neurotoxin treatment helps control the symptoms of severe underarm sweating, excessive sweating of the hands and feet when topical medicines do not work well enough by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. Botox injections are expected to temporarily stop the production of excessive sweat in the treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere.
WHERE DOES THE SWEAT GO?
Your sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because the sweat simply is not produced in the areas treated with Botox. Remember, the rest of your body is free to produce moisture normally.
