You’ve been dreaming of your “Big Day” for months, maybe even years. The day of your wedding the flowers will be gorgeous, your dress will fit perfectly, and your makeup and hair will be flawless. But for many brides, the dreamlike quality of their wedding day can quickly turn into a nightmare due to excessive and embarrassing perspiration brought on by stress. Luckily, there is an effective way to keep you dry and confident on this special day with BOTOX for underam sweating.
Botox for Underarm Sweating
An estimated 7.8 million people, or nearly 3% of the United States population, suffer from excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis. The condition causes increased sweating of the underarms, soles of the feet, face, scalp, palms of the hands and sometimes other areas. For some, hyperhidrosis can be triggered by warmer temperatures, stress, anxiety, or just plain old nerves. As you can imagine, these are ALL things many of us experience on our wedding days, leading brides and grooms all around the world to seek out Botox treatments, so excessive sweating doesn’t spoil their wedding day.
When administered correctly, Botox has been shown to decrease underarm sweating 82-87%. Most patients notice a difference within two to four days after treatment. Full effects usually set in at two weeks. Patients then enjoy dry underarms for up to 12 months (sometimes longer) after only one treatment.
“I use a very small, fine needle to administer Botox to my patient’s underarms,” explains Katie McClellan PA-C, the owner of Infinite Youth Medical Spa. “We cover the entire underarm area in a grid-like pattern of small injections that are essentially absorbed by your sweat glands,” she continues. “The Botox prevents the small nerves on these sweat glands from receiving the signal to release perspiration; keeping you dry and confident!”
Because the effects of Botox are not immediate, most injection specialists will advise you to schedule your treatment four to six weeks before your wedding. This interval will give your body time to adjust and allow you to enjoy the results long after your wedding day.
“I really enjoy providing this service for brides and grooms,” smiles Katie. “Some of the most special photos and memories of your lifetime will be captured on your wedding day,” she continues, “I always feel honored to play a part in making someone feel more attractive and confident on such a big day in their lives!”
