First, a thorough investigation is done. Blood pressure, heart rate and oxygenation in the blood is measured. Then the areas that you want to have treted are examined, and these are marked with a pencil. The treatment area is measured and a grid is created of about 1 by 1 cm, where the injections are to be placed.
With each puncture about one drop of Botox® is injected under the skin. The droplet spreads out under the skin, and has finally covered the entire area where sweating is a problem. The needles we use for the injections are insulin syringes with a very thin and fine needle.
Depending on the area treated, one can expect a treatment to take:
- Armpits: appx. 15 minutes.
- Body: appx. 60 minutes.
- Hands feet: appx. 75 minutes.
After the treatment, you can return to work if you wish, but it is individual how to react to the treatment.
Some may experience fatigue afterwards. This is normally linked to the tension and not the actual contents of the injections, the toxin.
The state afterwards is also dependent on what kind of pain relief you received during the treatment.
