Botox® For Hyperhidrosis
Botox® is also used to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. It is a troublesome condition that causes those who experience it to often find themselves in awkward social situations. Topical medications, oral medications, iontophoresis, and surgery have not been proven to be very effective against hyperhidrosis. However, Botox® has been found to offer effective temporary relief from this undesirable condition.
Is Botox® Safe for the Body?
Anyone over the age of 25 knows all too well how wrinkles and fine lines can start to take a toll on your appearance. As we continue to age, faint lines deepen, and these wrinkles add years onto an otherwise youthful-looking face. You can remove these wrinkles and keep your youthful appearance at Willow Creek Preventive Medicine and Weight Loss.
Botox® injections can be made around common sites for wrinkles, such as the forehead, neck, between the brows, below the eyes, and around the mouth. Botox® works by temporarily relaxing the muscles surrounding the injection site, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin. As Botox® is only administered via injections, it is an outpatient, minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime, allowing thousands of people to achieve younger-looking skin without surgery.
At Willow Creek Preventive Medicine and Weight Loss, our medical professionals have many years of experience dealing with the complex anatomy of the face, allowing us to safely and effectively provide the results possible with Botox®. If you’re concerned about any side effects of Botox®, it’s important to note that the only side effect is muscle weakness surrounding the injection site. As a result, you may have some degree of difficulty making certain expressions, such as frowning, raising your eyebrows, or squinting; however, this subsides as time passes. Since such small doses of Botox® are used in each injection, it has been shown to be a safe means to reduce wrinkles, and there are no long-term side effects from repeated injections.
For those in the Cheyenne area, you can even receive Botox® treatments at Willow Creek Preventive Medicine and Weight Loss during your lunch break.
