Botox for Underarm Sweating

Underarm sweating can be by far one of the most inconvenient occurrences in everyday life. It causes wardrobe malfunctions, can create icky stains, draws a lot of attention and let’s not mention the smell! A lot of people struggle with excessive sweating, you are not alone. Even better, you have options to help reduce the amount of sweat you produce. Botox is usually thought of as a beauty treatment for perfecting the skin, but it’s also a treatment for underarm sweating.

How does it work?

The Botox injections affect the muscles and nerves in a way that paralyzes them. This stops the sweat glands from being able to produce sweat.

 

What happens during Treatment?

The specialist may start by giving you ice, or a cold pack, to numb the target area. This will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible, without affecting the injections. Then, they will outline the injection area with a pen or marker. Typically, the target area is the same area that a lot of hair growth takes place under the arms. The doctor will then proceed to puncture the target area with many small injections. The treatment is quick, usually about 10 minutes or so (results vary patient to patient).

Recovery and Results

You should find yourself recovering in the same day from the injections. It may take 3-4 days for the injections to take affect and you begin to sweat less. Deodorant is still needed, but antiperspirant is not. A simple, organic deodorant should do just fine. Results should last about 6 months, then you’ll need another treatment. This is also a preventative, so it will minimize your ability to sweat. Which means you should find yourself sweating even less after each treatment.

 

Side effects

Common side effects include the following: pain, bleeding from injection area, redness, itching and swelling. If you are noticing any serious symptoms that may be related to an allergic reaction, contact your doctor right away. Side effects should be short term. *Individual results may vary.*
