Hyperhidrosis (severe underarm sweating)
BOTOX® is FDA-Approved for severe underarm sweating when topical agents don’t work. BOTOX® treatment helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When sweat glands don’t receive the chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
The procedure is relatively straightforward. A small volume of Botox solution is injected into the affected underarm area through a very fine needle. The needle is placed just under the skin, so you may experience some injection-related discomfort. You will receive multiple injections based on your doctor’s assessment of the area that needs to be treated.
Botox has been used therapeutically for over 16 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. In fact, Botox for therapeutic use remains one of the most widely researched medicines in the world.
