Botox Injections for Underarm Sweating
Botox is primarily known as a treatment for the signs of ageing, but it is also an effective treatment to reduce underarm sweating.
Excessive underarm sweating
Many people suffer from severe underarm sweating (primary axillary hyperhidrosis) and have not been able to stem the issue with topical medications. Treatments have proved to be effective at temporally reducing underarm sweating.
A tiny injection of Botox can block the chemical signal which stimulates the sweat glands in the armpit. Sweat in other areas will be unaffected, and we will only perform the procedure for the armpits.
As the treatment is FDA approved, some insurers may cover the cost of the procedure.
Our qualified professional will make a series of small injections to the underarm.
Within four weeks of your treatment, you should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating.
Botox works by blocking chemical signals from the nerves. After the treatment is administered, the sweat glands will no longer receive signals from the nerves. As a result of this, severe sweating is reduced.
