What is BOTOX for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)?
It’s a common problem no one wants to talk about: Excessive Sweating, also known by the clinical term, Hyperhidrosis. If you find that prescription strength anti-perspirants and deodorants provide little relief, and your sweating is causing you significant embarrassment, don’t suffer in silence any longer! Regain your confidence, and treat your excessive sweat with Botox.
When injected into the area of concern, Botox works by blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the overactive sweat glands, preventing and reducing sweat production in the treated area.

Treatment with Botox for excessive sweating begins with your provider applying a starch-iodine test to the area of concern. This test is an important first step, as it shows the location of hyperactive sweat glands that require treatment. The treatment area is then cleansed, and using a very fine needle, a series of 10 to 15 small injections are made in a grid pattern to the affected area. You should notice a significant reduction of sweat within 2-3 days of treatment, with results typically lasting around 8 months.*
*Individual results may vary.
Botox is FDA-approved to combat excessive sweating of the underarms, but can also be used to manage the symptoms of excessive sweating of the hands, and feet (Palmar and Plantar Hyperhidrosis).
Botox is a very safe prescription medicine that has been widely studied and researched for both its medical and aesthetic benefits. Over the past 16 years, there has been 528 peer-reviewed articles on Botox published in scientific and medical journals, making it the most studied treatment of its kind.
Treatment of Excessive Sweating with Botox is very tolerable. Patients may have some tenderness in the treated area immediately after treatment, but this typically resolves very quickly, and should not affect your day-to-day activities.
