Excessive Sweating Treatment

(Hyperhidrosis)

The U.S. FDA approved BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxin A) in 2004, for the treatment of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis in patients unable to achieve relief using antiperspirants.

Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a purified protein with the ability to temporarily block the secretion of the chemical that turns on the body’s sweat glands. When injected in a specific area to block this chemical messenger, Botox turns off excessive sweating. Botox is injected in several places just below the underarm skin.

Before being treated for excessive sweating, make sure the shave your underarms 24 hours before you receive your injection. Also, do not apply any antiperspirants or deodorants for 24 hours before. Lastly, avoid any exercise and hot foods/beverages 30 minutes before and for 1 day after treatment.
