Botox for Excessive Sweating and Migraines

Think Botox is only for cosmetic purposes? It can also be used to reduce excessive underarm or palm sweating, and it can reduce the pain and symptoms of future headaches for migraine sufferers.

Excessive underarm or palm sweating can be an embarrassing problem. It can change the way people see themselves, how they dress and by effecting their self-confidence, excessive sweating can prevent them from presenting their best self.

Botox is FDA approved for treating excessive sweating under arms and can also be used to treat sweating of palms of hands or feet. You should notice a significant reduction in sweating within 4 weeks of your first treatment. Results last for 6 months and, in many cases, even longer.

How Much Botox Will I Need?

How Much Botox Will I Need? | Halo Med Spa Northfield ILClients new to Botox often ask the same question before treatment: How many units will I need?

Although it sounds like a simple question, there is no canned answer. The amount of Botox an individual will need is dependent on multiple issues, and will always vary from person to person. However, from a consumer stand-point, this is one of the things that makes Botox treatments so wonderful — every treatment is completely customized to the client.

Depending on how many different areas of the face you're interested in treating, the amount of Botox required can vary drastically. This, coupled with the following characteristics, will help determine exactly how many units of Botox you need to achieve the end-result you want:

  • Differing Aesthetic Goals: Some people prefer a completely frozen result, while others like to maintain movement in a minimized capacity. (For example, most women choose to have their foreheads completely motionless, while many men prefer to allow for slight movement.)
  • Different Muscle Strengths: Someone with stronger forehead muscles requires more Botox to quiet the muscle movements than a person with weaker forehead muscles.
  • Pre-Existing Situations: The more prevalent and deep-set a patient’s current wrinkles are, the more product will be required to erase them.
  • Different face shapes and sizes: For example, a person with a larger forehead will require more units of Botox to halt motion than a person with a smaller forehead.
  • Metabolism: The length of time Botox results last are dependent on how quickly each patient metabolizes the product. The faster a person’s metabolism, the more frequently patients will require treatment.

Botox and Dysport treatments take just 10-15 minutes and, within days, there’s a noticeable improvement. Results vary by individual but can last for up to four months.
