BOTOX for Excessive Sweating
Hyperhidrosis (severe underarm sweating)
Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, or severe underarm sweating, is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body’s temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements. This condition often goes undiagnosed, misdiagnosed and untreated due to lack of awareness.
Botox® treatment helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. The median duration of response in botox® patients is approximately 6-7 months.
Botox® is not a cure; your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment. We will recommend a treatment strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible results with botox® treatment.
