Botox® for Excessive Sweating
What is hyperhidrosis and how can Botox help?
Sweating is a normal and healthy function of the body. However, for some people sweating can go into overdrive. Severe underarm sweating, also known as severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, is a condition in which the body sweats more than it has to in order to regulate body temperature. The severity of the condition is based on the extent it interferes with your daily activities.
For those with severe underarm sweating that is not controlled with over the counter or clinical strength antiperspirants. Excessive sweating can be distinguished between normal sweating if you frequently need to change your clothing, avoid certain fabrics, or use absorbent materials under your clothes to cope with underarm sweating.
How it works
BOTOX® temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, severe sweating is reduced. Sweat will continue to be naturally produced elsewhere on the body.
Clinical studies have demonstrated significant reduction in underarm sweating with results lasting 201 days (6 months).
