Excessive sweating, known under its medical term Hyperhidrosis (HH), is a topic which is rarely thought about. It is an embarrassing condition for many people and sometimes even disabling and could easily ruin one’s social and professional life.

BOTOX® helps control the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines do not work well enough by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. BOTOX® injections are expected to temporarily stop the production of excessive sweat in the treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere.

There are several benefits to using Botox to help combat excessive sweating. One good thing about using Botox for the treatment of hyperhidrosis is that it only requires a simple injection and topical anesthetic is applied to make it a relatively pain free treatment. Patients are able to go back to work immediately.

For some patients, BOTOX® treatments have been shown to decrease sweating by up to 80%. Another advantage of using this form of treatment is that it is generally considered to be quite safe.

Botox for hyperhidrosis typically lasts about six months.
