Is severe underarm sweating interfering with certain daily activities? Are you afraid to raise your arms in normal situations because of underarm sweat stains? Do you hesitate to buy new clothes because they might be ruined by underarm sweat? Do you worry someone will notice your sweat stains?
Ask us if BOTOX® treatment is right for you. When severe underarm sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants haven’t worked, you may be a candidate for BOTOX® treatment.
Once you understand how this condition may affect you, schedule a visit to discuss products and treatment options that are right for you. BOTOX® neurotoxin treatment 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.
Where does the sweat go? Your sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because the sweat simply is not produced in the areas treated with BOTOX®. Remember, the rest of your body is free to produce moisture normally.
Keep in mind that BOTOX® treatment is not appropriate for all sufferers. You and your doctor will make the determination if it’s right for you. During the procedure, a small amount of BOTOX® is injected into the affected underarm area through a very fine needle. In a short period of time, about 15 injections are made to the underarm area. The actual procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes and lasts up to 201 days or 6.7 months. 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, please contact us for a follow-up consultation.
