A certain number of women and men experience extreme underarm sweating, a condition usually that cannot be solved using deodorants and similar products.

Excess sweating had many causes, some physiological and some have to do with psychological issues a person goes through in life. But no matter the cause, such conditions inevitably affect a person’s professional and private life. Stress can be a significant trigger for excess underarm sweating, same as excess nicotine and caffeine consumption.

Botox injections against excess sweating

Botox has proved to be a reliable and efficient remedy against access underarm sweating. Botox is a natural purified protein produced by the bacteria named Clostidium botulinum. Today Botox is used primarily in aesthetics medicine (to treat facial and forehead wrinkles) because it efficiently blocks the muscles responsible for facial mimics, thus causing wrinkles to appear.  Botox is, in any case, a safe, secure and minimally invasive treatment.

How does Botox work?

Botox minimizes the work of sweat glands. It is applied to the underarm area using tiny needles. The treatment is safe and had no side-effects on the patient’s health. Patients return to their daily routine immediately after the treatment.

How long does Botox therapy last?

The effects of Botox on sweating usually last up to six months after the application. The first effects are seen 7 to 15 days after the treatment (during that period, deodorants are not used). Patients can experience sweating after the treatment, which is normal, but not as before.

What is advised prior to the treatment?

It is advised that the underarm area is shaved 24 hours before the treatment.

Are Botox injections painful?

The treatment is not painful, it is executed in a short time and patients can return to their daily routine right afterwards.
