In addition to cosmetic benefits like the softening of frown lines, forehead lines, and crows feet, BOTOX® can help with severe underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis). With one treatment of this prescription medicine, you can experience up to 201 days of drier underarms!
Why choose BOTOX® for hyperhidrosis?
BOTOX® is a prescription medicine that temporarily blocks the secretion of the chemical responsible for activating the body’s sweat glands. By blocking, or interrupting, this chemical messenger, botulinum toxin “turns off” sweating at the area where it has been injected.
What can I expect during treatments?
BOTOX® for hyperhidrosis treatments are quick, simple, and non-surgical procedures. During treatments, your TKI provider will make 10-15 small injections into the affected underarm area with a very fine needle.
These injections are very shallow, meaning that the medicine is injected just below the surface of the skin, where it remains.
Are the treatments painful?
Typically any pain is minimal and brief. No anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately. It is essential to follow the aftercare instructions.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
You should notice a significant reduction in sweating within 4 weeks of your first treatment, with results lasting 3-6 months.
How can I maintain my results?
Since this treatment does not cure hyperhidrosis, your symptoms will return gradually and you’ll know when it’s the right time for another treatment. Your TKI provider will recommend an effective treatment strategy when you come in for your consultation.
