Botox injections blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the sweat glands are inactivated.
A topical numbing agent is typically applied to the injection area before BOTOX is administered to minimize pain and discomfort.
It is widely considered one of the safest and most predictable treatments on the market.
Some patients have experienced slight bruising in the injected areas.
You can normally expect the results to last between 3 - 6 months, so twice annual treatments are recommended, though results may vary from person to person.

We all sweat. It’s only natural. But there is a difference between routine perspiration and excessive sweating around the armpits, known in the medical community as hyperhidrosis.
People with this condition can sweat up to four times more than normal in order to maintain a normal body temperature, a burden far too taxing for an antiperspirant deodorant to handle.
Hyperhidrosis can have seriously negative effects on a person’s quality of life, making social interactions needlessly awkward and even interfering with work activities.
BOTOX injections for sweating offer relief from even the worst hyperhidrosis symptoms and will have you feeling fresh and comfortable in relatively no time at all. As opposed to more invasive surgical solutions, BOTOX simply blocks the nerves from reaching the sweat glands.
Patients who received BOTOX injections for sweating reported up to a 75% reduction in armpit perspiration within 4 weeks of treatment.
