How to stop sweating with Botox

Botox is one of the simplest and most effective solutions to stop underarm sweating. What’s so powerful is that Botox handles the problem at the source, unlike other underarm sweat treatments. Amazingly, it only takes about 15 minutes.

Botox works by temporarily blocking messages between your nerves and your sweat glands. Usually, your nerves create a chemical called acetylcholine, which tells your sweat glands to activate. With Botox, the acetylcholine stops sending. The signals don't get through. You just quit sweating wherever the Botox gets injected. One quick treatment can keep your armpits dry and sweat-free for up to a year.

Is hyperhidrosis Botox treatment right for me?


You should consider Botox for underarm hyperhidrosis if:


  • Excessive armpit sweating leaves you drenched, even when you haven’t been exercising
  • The sweat feels like a tap you just can’t turn off, no matter what
  • Anxiety about sweating feels like a vicious cycle -- the more you worry about sweating, the more you sweat
  • You feel self-conscious and embarrassed when people notice how much you’re sweating
  • You often sweat through your clothes, and sometimes you have to change shirts several times a day
  • You tend to wear black or dark-colored shirts to hide the wet spots
  • When you buy clothes, you have to avoid delicate fabrics (like silk) that show sweat marks easily
  • You avoid nerve-wracking activities like public speaking and doing presentations at work
  • Sometimes you have to avoid hugging people or lifting your arms
  • You keep towels and extra shirts with you at work or in the car, because you don’t know when you’re going to sweat
  • You’ve tried other hyperhidrosis treatments, like prescription-strength antiperspirants, but nothing has worked

Hyperhidrosis treatment: What to expect

Botox for hyperhidrosis is a lot like getting cosmetic Botox. It’s convenient, quick, minimally invasive, and you can get right back to your everyday routine after. Even better, the treatment might be covered by your health insurance. Check your policy for details.

Getting ready

You’ll start with a consultation with our physician assistant. It’ll be a quick conversation about how much you sweat and what parts of your armpits sweat the most. We’ll then create a custom treatment plan for you, including where to inject and how many units of Botox to use.

Your Procedure

We want you to be comfortable, so our provider will start by using a topical numbing cream on your armpits. This keeps the procedure pretty much pain-free. Sometimes the first injection can feel like a little prick, but the needle is very fine. Most patients report that they can’t feel much of anything.

From start to finish, the injections usually take about 10 minutes. Once your skin is numbed, the Botox will be placed in a grid pattern under the surface your skin. A single vial of 100 units is usually enough to treat both armpits. Typically, it takes about 10 to 15 injections to get the best results.

Amazing results

You’ll start to see some improvement within about two to four days. The Botox will keep working better and better over time. Within a month, you’ll see the full results. It may take a bit of patience, but it’s worth it -- one session typically reduces your sweating by 82-87% after four weeks. The results last anywhere from four to twelve months.

Zero recovery time

One of the benefits of Botox as a treatment for hyperhidrosis is that there’s no downtime. You can go back to your usual daily routine without any restrictions. There can be a slight stinging feeling for 10-15 minutes after the procedure. You might experience some minor redness, tenderness, or swelling for a few days.

We do recommend a few guidelines:

  • Don’t shave or wax your underarms for a few days before your appointment
  • Avoid taking ibuprofen and aspirin for one week before your appointment
  • Avoid heavy exercise on the day of treatment (light exercise is fine)
  • Steer clear of saunas, hot tubs, or very hot showers until any post-procedure redness fades
  • Wear sunscreen with SPF 30+ on the area when you go out in the sun

Follow-up

To make sure you’re getting the best results, we’ll schedule a follow-up visit a couple weeks after your treatment. Your provider will check in with you to see how you’re doing and make sure everything is coming along. If there are any spots that don’t show improvement, we can do a quick touch-up with additional Botox.

These treatments are long-lasting, but temporary. You’ll need maintenance treatments to stop your symptoms from coming back. Since everyone’s body is different, the results last longer for some people than others. Schedule your maintenance treatment as soon as you start showing signs of excessive underarm sweating.
