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. In addition to the HDSS, your dermatologist may also measure the amount of sweat you are producing over a period of time.
What is it like to get Botox® for severe underarm sweating?
Drier underarms with 1 treatment
Your dermatologist 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. Your healthcare provider can recommend a treatment strategy.
