Botox® Cosmetic has been commonly used for over 20 years to treat unwanted wrinkles and facial expressions. However, Botox has been proven highly effective for certain medical related conditions such as excessive underarm sweating for improved confidence and comfort.
Excessive underarm wetness, known as hyperhidrosis, can be an uncomfortable cosmetic concern. Sweating allows our bodies to maintain body temperature and hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes men and women to sweat more than necessary. Extreme sweating can cause embarrassment, odors, and staining of your clothing. For some, prescription deodorants may ease the burden of hyperhidrosis but this is often not enough. Botox has been proven to treat this medical concern with results that last for between 6 and 7 months.
Botox has been approved by the FDA as a safe, effective way to treat unnecessary sweating. Botox for underarm sweating involves injecting a purified protein to block secretion of sweat glands. The protein blocks seat glands from “turning on”. Injections are very shallow, meaning the protein is injected just below the surface of the skin, where it remains.
This treatment is highly effective and has been shown to decrease sweating by 82-87% on average. Results are seen in 2 to 4 days, with full effects within 2 weeks.
