The treatment area may feel sore and or tender for the first 12 hours. Occasionally, some patients describe a tiredness or heaviness of the arms which usually resolves within a few days from occurring. Results should be evident within a week. You are invited for a review appointment to record the effectiveness of treatment and modify your treatment plan if necessary. Sometimes an additional treatment is required to achieve optimal results. Keep the area clean. You may apply antiperspirants as soon as the skin has recovered from the injections- usually within 4-12 hours. Avoid vigorous exercise or extreme heat for 48 hours after treatment. Should you experience any unpleasant side effects that you are not expecting, or suffer symptoms that concern you, please do not hesitate to contact the clinic and an appointment will be made for you to be seen. The treatment may not completely stop any sweating, but we expect the sweating to be significantly reduced.
Treatment results are expected to last approximately 9 – 12 months. For some individuals this may be shorter, or even longer. Once the Botox® wears off, your condition will return to its previous state, there is no permanent effect on your condition, either for the better, or for the worse. If you have any further questions, before, during or after the treatment, do not hesitate to ask your practitioner. Botox administration can result in anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction) which in itself is life threatening and requires immediate medical attention.
Symptoms of a severe allergic reaction can include shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, difficulty swallowing, swelling of the tongue, eyelids, lips, hoarseness of the voice, stomach pain, nausea or diarrhoea. If you have any of the above symptoms please report to your nearest Accident and Emergency Department or call 999 for an ambulance.
