Botulinum toxin has been used cosmetically for nearly two decades. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t know it’s effectiveness at taking years off the face. But did you know botulinum toxin can be used to prevent sweating? Celebrities are well aware of this little secret. They often use it to treat sweating before award ceremonies. No one wants sweat stains on their couture, after all. Whether you’re interested in treating yourself, or providing the service to your clients, Innotox is a great option to prevent sweat…and you don’t need to be a celebrity to enjoy it.
WHAT IS INNOTOX?
Innotox is an innovative product from South Korea that smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Made from botulinum toxin, this liquid pharmaceutical form is an improved botulinum formula. It is popular worldwide for its long-lasting effects and ease of use. Unlike other
botulinum toxins, Innotox can transported and stored at room temperature.
Although Innotox is primarily used as beauty treatment to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, it has other uses. Being a neurotoxin, it’s highly effective at treating neuromuscular conditions like spasms, migraines, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). But how does an anti-aging product prevent sweating?
HOW DOES INNOTOX WORK?
Innotox affects nerve responses by essentially paralyzing them. This is why it’s so effective at smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles: it paralyzes the nerves and muscles of the face, causing the skin to relax and smooth. Innotox for sweating works in the same way.
Botulinum toxin blocks the nerves responsible for sweating by altering the function of certain neurotransmitters. Specifically, the toxin blocks the neurotransmitter that signals the sweat glands to activate. However, this effect is only achieved in the area of the body treated with the Innotox injections. Other areas where you sweat are unaffected.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS INNOTOX FOR SWEATING?
Whether you suffer from excessive underarm sweating or you simply want an alternative to chemical antiperspirants and deodorants, Innotox is highly effective at reducing sweat. According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, injections of botulinum toxin solutions can reduce sweating up to 82-87%!
After an injection, people usually see results in as little as 2-4 days, but full effects are experienced within 2 weeks. And these effects typically last 4-12 months, though some people enjoy lasting effects for 14 months. Other clients find that after regular treatments, Innotox injections to treat sweating tend to last longer and longer after each treatment.
