Why People Are Using Botox for Feet

BOTOX® treatments are a popular means to treat a variety of cosmetic and medical issues. Even though most people think BOTOX® is only used on the face, the medicine’s large number of applications now includes the feet. Sole Aesthetic in Bellaire, TX has helpful procedures that use BOTOX® for feet with the goal of reducing excess sweat production.

Preventing Sweaty Feet

Lactic acid is a substance that your body naturally produces during or after extended periods of heavy exercise. Dermal fillers that contain polylactic acid are a safe, synthetic treatment that contain this chemical that has the power to activate expedited collagen production over time. This is great news for those who are just starting to see experience decreases in their natural collagen production. Expediting collagen production adds volume to the tissues in the treated area so that loose and sagging skin is tightened, and deep creases and areas with volume loss are filled in. Given that this product is ultimately intended to restore healthy collagen levels, it may take some time and patience to experience the best results.

BOTOX® for feet is being used is helping people who have excessively sweaty feet. Plantar Hyperhidrosis is a condition that makes a person’s feet sweat much more than a typical person’s feet. If untreated, this amount of excessive sweating can lead to the development of unwanted bacteria. The ailment comes with the tendency to ruin shoes and make the person uncomfortable while walking. As your sweat production decreases, this may also prevent feet from smelling bad.

BOTOX® is injected directly into the feet to reduce the amount of sweat production. While sweating is important for regulating your body temperature, preventing your feet from sweating should not have a major negative impact on your health.

What Is The Procedure?

Typically, the procedure for using BOTOX® for feet is rather simple. The patient undergoing the treatment receives injections directly in their feet. Begin your treatment process with a consultation with our team to understand the benefits and options.

The procedure is over rather quickly, and you may start to experience a reduction in sweating within a few weeks. While you may require a series of treatments to achieve and maintain the best results, you may enjoy a decrease in sweating from anywhere for a few months to up to two years!

How Can BOTOX® For Feet Stop Sweating?

Once BOTOX® is injected into the feet at multiple sites, it causes paralysis in the nerves responsible for sweat production. The result is that the feet do not produce as much sweat as before.
