For those suffering from severe underarm sweating – a condition that is clinically referred to as hyperhidrosis – BOTOX® or Dysport® injections can help. Hyperhidrosis can be an embarrassing and hard to disguise condition, which can affect a person’s confidence, productivity, and quality of life. The FDA has approved BOTOX® and Dysport® to treat hyperhidrosis when antiperspirants or other medications fail. Not only does this treatment alleviate the actual sweat, but it also reduces body odor (bromhydrosis).
Revive often performs BOTOX® or Dysport® injections for those experiencing profuse sweating of the underarms, hands, and feet. Our Certified Cosmetic Injectors first evaluate each individual to diagnosis hyperhidrosis and then customize a treatment plan based on personal needs. The number of BOTOX® or Dysport® units used, injection site, and frequency of treatment will vary with each client.
BOTOX® or Dysport® are purified proteins that block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. By interrupting this chemical messenger, BOTOX® or Dysport® prevents sweat prevention at the injection site. Strategic and precise placement of injections is the key to effectively stopping the glands from producing sweat. A single treatment of several injections is typically sufficient to reduce sweating for several months; however, follow-up sessions are usually necessary to maintain results.
Prior to treatment, you will be prepped with a cleanse of the area and application of iodine and cornstarch. Sweat interacts with cornstarch and iodine and the sweating area (glands) turn purple. These areas are then marked for injection! BOTOX® or Dysport® injections are made in the skin near the sweat glands responsible for perspiration and are administered using a very fine needle. Injections are shallow and relatively painless, injected just below the surface of the skin, where they remain. Approximately 10-20 injections in each underarm are made. The standard dose is 50 units per underarm but may vary depending on the patient. Treatment time may take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the injection site. There is little to no downtime associated with this treatment, and most patients are able to return to their normal routine immediately.
You should notice an initial improvement of excessive sweating within about 2 weeks. Repeated treatment is safe and effective for hyperhidrosis and consistently results in long-lasting improvements and a significant reduction in excessive sweating, thus improving quality of life.
Using BOTOX® or Dysport® to treat hyperhidrosis is most effective when performed by a knowledgeable certified injector or nurse practitioner who is experienced with the procedure. The Certified Cosmetic Injectors at Revive at The Group Med Spa are highly skilled in using proper injection techniques that dispense the right amount of neurotoxin into the appropriate location.
The effects of BOTOX® or Dysport® injections usually last approximately 4 to 6 months. Although, some patients are free of excessive sweating for more than 7 months to a year.
Most patients do not experience side effects after treatment. However, localized pain or mild bruising may occur near the injection site for some people.

I was really impressed with how Kisha mapped out my face before she injected my Botox. I have had Botox at other places and have never experienced this. Her experience and treatment process truly put me at ease during my appointment. I will definitely be back!– Reece
Mary was great! She spent time with me. She answered all of my questions since this was my first time getting injectables. She really analyzed what would be the best options for me based on my concerns. The results were awesome. I felt like in 2-3 days I could already notice a difference. After two weeks the results were remarkable. I definitely recommend others to consult with Mary and take advantage of Revive's great new client discount!– Jessica
Completely in love with my Dysport results I received from Kisha! She is very knowledgeable, professional, sweet, and personable!– Lana

My first trip to Revive was today and it was everything I had hoped it to be. I had a 90-minute massage. It was absolutely amazing and I am definitely rebooking another with her. So much relief with TMJ and muscle tension. After the massage, I had my skin consultation with Kisha and continued to be amazed by the level of professionalism and knowledge, as well as the friendly and genuine service. I have booked again next week for my first Dysport session. All my friends and coworkers have asked for the outcome of my spa visit and it's definitely a 2 THUMBS UP! Thank you for a great experience from the check-in staff all the way to the end of my sessions. The facility is beautiful as well!– Leah

I just wanted to say that after my appt with Haley last Friday, I was feeling super optimistic that I could have clear skin again. After my chemical peel, my skin continued to get clearer and clearer. I started using the EltaMD Skin Care lotions and really love them.

I have tried a few places since moving to the Quad Cities from Chicago and finally found this gem. They did an awesome job with my Dysport injections and really listened to what I was asking them to do. They far surpassed my expectations and the place is clean as a freaking whistle! My mother was in town visiting from Atlanta and they did hers as well. She was also beyond pleased with the results and facility overall. Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back for more soon. Thank you, Revive!– Kara
