Botox For Sweating

Did you know your favorite NeuroToxin can be used to stop sweating for up to 6 months!

      When is sweat too much sweat? 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 



That’s the kind of relief you can experience with BOTOX®(onabotulinumtoxinA). Individual results may vary.

How does BOTOX® work?

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.

Where does the sweat go?

Sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because it’s simply not produced in the areas treated with BOTOX®. Sweat will continue to be produced elsewhere.

The Process 

Drier underarms with 1 treatment

Your injector will make 10 to 15 small injections into the affected underarm area through a very fine needle. 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 dermatologist and request a follow-up consultation.

Results that last

You can experience drier underarms for up to 201 days or 6.7 months. Individual results may vary.

When is it time for another treatment?

Keep in mind that BOTOX® is not a cure for severe underarm sweating. Your symptoms will return gradually, and you’ll know when the time is right for another treatment.1 Your healthcare provider can recommend a treatment strategy.
