It is also the most popular cosmetic procedure over any including surgery in the entire U.S. for 4 years running now. It is reasonably priced making it affordable and safe.

Hyperhidrosis is a very common condition characterized by abnormal increased sweating generally found in the underarm area. This can be a very embarrassing condition that is easily treatable at Youthful Medical Spa with Botox injections in your underarms. Botox is injected into the area when topical medications are not working well enough to give relief. Underarm Botox injections will help to stop excessive sweating for up to 12 months. Both men and women can easily receive this treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Individual results may vary.

When will I see results from BOTOX® ?
Upon completion of the procedure, an ice pack may be placed on the area treated. Patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Patients should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of four hours after the injections. It is also advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours.
How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last?
Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary.
Is treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the physician’s office without downtime following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
