Excessive Underarm Sweat
If you have been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis – excessive underarm sweating – you may feel, like many sufferers, that the disorder disrupts social situations and that it significantly interferes with your daily activities. If you sweat excessively, and if issues such as dark sweat patches on clothing, sweating on the body no matter the temperature, and odor make you feel self-conscious, then using Botox to resolve excessive underarm sweating may be the solution for you.
BOTOX® is injected into the skin to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when antiperspirants and medicines used on the skin do not work well enough in people 18 years and older. The injections are quick, relatively painless, and do not demand any restrictions in work or leisure activity (aside from refraining from intensive exercise or the use of a sauna on the day of the injections).
When used to treat underarm excessive sweating, Botox has been shown to result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating. Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months but some studies have found it can last as long as 14 months.
