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. 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 in 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 from 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.
Many people also use BOTOX® or Dysport® to lessen the look of facial lines and wrinkles or in conjunction with dermal fillers in a procedure known as a “liquid facelift.”

Revive was initially recommended to me by friends, I've been a client now for a few different treatments. I received Dysport from Katie and Kisha and they are both amazing! On my last visit, I had a consultation for lip injections. At my consultation, Kisha provided me with Restylane Kysse lip injections. Kisha is a true artist! I am completely obsessed with my lips! Kisha was so informative, knowledgeable, and sweet!– Tanya
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

I love the privacy of the relaxation area so we aren't awkwardly sitting together in the open lobby, especially when I was nervous before my first appointment! Oh, and your treatment rooms are awesome. I've been to specialists' offices that were tiny and cramped in comparison.– Jessica
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
