While BOTOX® is not a cure for hyperhidrosis; it can offer significant improvement and relief for men and women frustrated by excessive sweating.

How It Works

BOTOX® temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, severe sweating is reduced. Sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because it’s simply not produced in the areas treated with BOTOX®. Sweat will continue to be produced elsewhere.

What to Expect

How It Feels

After receiving 10 to 15 small injections into the affected underarm area through a very fine needle patients can leave the office right after treatment.

Patients report they are pleased to discover they can raise their arms and buy new clothes without the fear of embarrassing armpit stains.  Note that areas which are not treated with BOTOX® will continue to produce sweat normally.

Treatment Time

20 minutes.


Most normal activities can be resumed immediately.


Although individual results will vary, patient on average have drier underarms for 6 to 7 months.
