Prevent Excessive Underarm Sweating
Prevent Excessive Underarm Sweating BOTOX® Cosmetic has proven to be an effective hyperhidrosis treatment. When injected into the underarm area, BOTOX helps to control hyperhidrosis by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When these glands no longer receive the chemical signals, the excessive underarm sweating stops. BOTOX Hyperhidrosis Treatments A small volume of BOTOX solution is injected through a very fine gauge needle into the underarm area. Discomfort is minimal during treatment. Depending on the severity of the hyperhidrosis, multiple injections may be needed. Within two to four weeks of the initial treatment there will be significant reduction in underarm sweating. There is a possibility that some sweat glands may be missed during BOTOX hyperhidrosis treatment. If this occurs, underarm sweating may continue from the untreated areas and a touch-up treatment may be needed. Results vary from person to person; however, BOTOX injections for hyperhidrosis treatment will need to be repeated every four to six months.
