Are you tired of products that claim to stop excess sweating but fall short? If you have excess sweating, Botox could be a lifechanging treatment choice. Here’s what you should know about Botox for sweaty underarms.

Excess Sweating

What defines excess sweating? While its normal to sweat when you’re hot or nervous, or during a workout, sweating for no reason can be a sign of hyperhidrosis. If you have tried over the counter or prescription antiperspirants with no improvement, it may be time to consider Botox for sweaty underarms.

Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Botox is an injectable form of botulinum toxin. It is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, well known for its wrinkle fighting powers. However, Botox also works wonders for hyperhidrosis. In fact, it can decrease underarm moisture by 82-87%. These results last between 3-12 months before the patient needs another treatment.

No More BO

That funky body odor smell is caused by bacteria that thrive in warm, moist places (like sweaty underarms). But Botox can help decrease body odor too. Eliminating the excess moisture helps the odor go away as well. Now, you will still need to wear deodorant or antiperspirant, since you won’t stop sweating completely. The goal is to bring the sweat levels down to a normal amount.

FDA Approved

Botox is FDA approved to treat hyperhidrosis AKA excessive sweating of the underarms. It may also be used on other areas of the body such as the hands, feet, head, under the breasts, and the face.

How it Works

Botox works by temporarily blocking the chemicals that signal your sweat glands to produce sweat. It won’t affect touch or sensations in the treatment area. The procedures involve around 25 injections in each armpit and is completed in one office visit. While most people don’t even feel the injections, some say it’s like a rubber band slap. You will begin to see improvement within a few days, but full results take about two weeks to show.
