How does Botox work? Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. Cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals all contribute to wrinkles. Constant muscle contractions from facial expressios also contribute. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest. Botox is a neurotoxin that is injected directly into the muscles and works by blocking nerve impulses. The muscles relax and do not contract, causing a smoother and more youthful appearance. Botox treatment takes less than 30 minutes and has no downtime. You can see improvement within days, with full results occurring in approximately 2 weeks. Results typically last up to 4 months.

Botox - a proven treatment for severe underarm sweat.
Botox is also highly effective in controlling excessive underarm sweating. For some patients topical medicines do not work well enough. Excessive sweating is known as hyperhidrosis. Botox is injected into the underarm to temporarily stop the production of excessive sweat. When the sweat glands don't receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. 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. The rest of your body is free to produce moisture normally. Results typically last about six months.
