Botox and Dysport have many other medical uses besides wrinkle-reduction. One of the most helpful is for controlling hyperhidrosis, a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. People who are candidates for being treated with Botox for sweating usually perspire even when the temperature is cool and when they are not working out. Many people who suffer from this condition tell us that they get nervous because they sweat, then sweat more because they are nervous. It affects both men and women.
Botox can be a life-changing, temporary treatment for those suffering from severe underarm sweating. Both Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved for the treatment primary axillary hyperhidrosis. Small doses are injected into the underarm areas to temporarily block the nerves that stimulate sweating. Treatment with Botox for sweating lasts from 7 to 9 months.
People who have been treated with Botox for underarm sweating are some of the happiest patients because they can wear their favorite clothes and don’t have to worry when they take their jackets off.

Aesthetic Nurse Injector
We are thrilled to have Melissa join our practice. For many of you, she needs no introduction. Her reputation for technical excellence and elegance is forged by 21 years of injecting experience right here in Knoxville.
Compassionate, nurturing, and calming, Melissa takes the time to listen to patients while kindly and expertly guiding them towards the results they’re wanting to achieve.
All of her patients from “Nervous Nellies” to injectable veterans are impressed by her personalized approach to their care and her gentle touch with a needle.
Melissa started her career as an Aesthetic Nurse Injector back in 1998. Those were the days of bovine collagen before anyone had ever heard of hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvederm.
In an area where new products are often coming to market, Melissa is uniquely qualified to choose the right product for each patient’s budget and goals, rather than wasting money on trendy, short-lived injectables.
In addition to her vast experience with injectables, Melissa’s background in dermatology and proficiency with lasers is a great asset to our patients. Together, Melissa and Christy and Dr. Reath will evaluate the newest technologies and ingredients to give the best results to our patients.
