While it’s known primarily for fighting those pesky wrinkles, you may not be aware that Botox can also provide lasting relief from another embarrassing condition: excessive underarm sweat.
This disorder can often cause difficulty in social situations and even significantly interfere with daily activities.
lasts as long as 6-12 months!
Botox injections contain onabotulinumtoxinA (a natural protein) that temporarily block the chemical responsible for activating sweat glands under the arm. Studies show that patients who have been treated for excessive underarm sweating using Botox have a 82-87% decrease in underarm sweating.
What to expect?
Injections take about 10-15 minutes to administer and do not require any recovery time. During the treatment, small amounts of Botox will be injected just under the skin of your underarms. The procedure involves minimal to no pain and patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately. Intense exercise and saunas should be avoided in the first 24 hours.
