What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a medical term for excessive sweating, characterized by an abnormal amount of sweat production. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use BOTOX® injections to treat severe underarm sweating when topical medications have been ineffective in patients 18 years and older.
How does it work?
When injected into the underarms, BOTOX® works by temporarily preventing the release of acetylcholine (the chemical that causes sweat glands to produce sweat) from nerve endings, thereby blocking excessive sweat production.
The procedure itself takes approximately 15 minutes with minimal discomfort, and results from the treatment last up to 7 months. A significant reduction in underarm sweat production can be noticed in 1-4 weeks post treatment.
