Dr. Kuzel administers underarm botox to female client to treat excessive sweating

Botox® medical

Back in 1978, when it was first approved as a therapeutic treatment for crossed eyes, few could have imagined how revolutionary Botox® would be. Since then, this neuromodulator has become a medical and cosmetic panacea, effectively treating everything from crossed eyes to migraines to excessive sweating to facial lines and wrinkles.

Botox® is derived from a neurotoxin produced by the botulinum toxin, which is diluted with saline for medical and cosmetic use. Administered by a professional, it’s safe and extremely effective.

Chronic migraines

For patients suffering from chronic migraines lasting four hours or more for at least 15 days a month, Botox® injections in the head and neck can effectively block neurotransmitters that carry pain signals from the brain, reducing headache pain and decreasing migraine symptoms. Results are typically seen within 2-3 weeks after treatment and can last up to three months.

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

Botox® can also relieve hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating in various parts of the body. It does so by blocking nerve signals that activate overactive sweat glands. Patients typically need treatment every 4-6 months to maintain relief.


Botox® injections usually begin working 1 to 3 days after treatment, though it can take a week or more to see full results. Not all people have visible results or relief from symptoms. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last 3 to 4 months. You'll likely need regular follow-up injections spaced at least three months apart to maintain the effect.
