Botox for Underarm Stops Unsightly Stains Caused by Severe Sweating

May 13, 2013

We’ve all been there.  You’re in the spotlight – the center of attention.  Just after you finish what you thought was an Oscar-worthy performance, you realize that the underarms of your shirt are soaked through with sweat.  No big deal, you say.  It was just one time, but what if you couldn’t control how often you sweat?

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is embarrassing and can wreak havoc on your confidence. You are not alone. Over 211 million people worldwide suffer from severe sweating. When an over-the-counter antiperspirant just won’t cut it, consider treating your hyperhidrosis with Botox.

How Botox Treats Hyperhidrosis

Botox injectionsare an FDA-approved treatment for excessive sweating of the hands, feet and underarm. Botox is made from a natural protein compound. When injected into the target area, the Botox protein blocks the chemical in the body that activates the sweat glands. Botox injections to the underarm should not affect the body’s ability to regulate temperature.


In one clinical trial, 81 percent of the 322 participants saw their sweating reduced by 50 percent. Other benefits of using Botox to treat excessive sweating include:

  • Quick Treatment.
  • No Recovery.
  • Non-invasive Procedure.

Treatment of the underarm is less painful than injections in the soles of the feet or palms of the hands. Remember: Botox is not a cure for hyperhidrosis. However, people who use Botoxto treat severe sweating have seen a reduction in sweat for up to 9 months. 


Now you can manage your excessive underarm sweating. Contact Advanced Laser and Skin Clinic to schedule your Botox treatment.
