Hyperhidrosis Treatment With Botox

Getting Treated for Hyperhidrosis:

During the procedure at the doctor’s office, a small amount of Botox is injected into the affected underarm area through a very fine needle. About 15 injections are made to the underarm area.The actual procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes and lasts up to 201 days or 6.7 months.

You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within 4 weeks of your first treatment. If you do not see a significant reduction in sweating, you should contact your healthcare provider and request a follow-up consultation.

Where does the sweat go?

Your sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because the sweat simply is not produced in the areas treated with Botox. Remember, the rest of your body is free to produce moisture normally.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is the condition in which a person sweats excessively or more than what is required to regulate body temperature.

Do you have Hyperhidrosis?

Is severe underarm sweating interfering with your daily activities? Are you afraid to raise your arms in normal situations because of underarm sweat stains? Do you hesitate to buy new clothes because they might be ruined by underarm sweat? Do you worry someone will notice your sweat stains? Ask your dermatologist if Botox treatment is right for you.When severe underarm sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants haven’t worked, you may be a candidate for Botox treatment.

Are there any possible side effects?


Botox can cause serious side effects. Other side effects of Botox include: dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, neck pain, and eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight, drooping eyelids, swelling of your eyelids, and dry eyes.

Tell your doctor or get medical help right away if you are wheezing or have asthma symptoms, or if you become dizzy or faint. Tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away. These are not all the possible side effects of Botox.
