Botox for Axillary Hyperhidrosis
Botox for Axillary Hyperhidrosis (Underarm Excessive Sweating)
Hyperhidrosis, most commonly known as excessive sweating. The most common areas affected by hyperhidrosis are the underarms, feet and groin area, hands or palms and the scalp. Excessive sweating can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and socially isolating. Botox, which is often associated with wrinkle reductions, is also an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis.
Botox is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the underarms. Botox injections work by blocking the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. It typically decreases the underarm moisture by 82%-87%. Retreatment might be needed in 4-6 months as the nerve regenerates.
Over time, however, clients can go longer between treatments. It is important to note that before being treated for excessive underarm sweating, clients should be evaluated by their primary health care provider for other potential causes of the problem that might require other forms of treatment.
