Home General Treating Severe Underarm Sweating with Botox

November 8, 2016

Severe underarm sweating can take a toll on your quality of life. It affects your confidence in social situations, ruins clothing, and can cause issues with intimate relationships. Botox can help restore your comfort and confidence.

A topical numbing cream is applied and the Botox is injected into several sites on the armpit in order to reduce sweating. The procedure is relatively painless with only mild discomfort. You should not wear any antiperspirant for a few days following the procedure. In most cases, perspiration is cut by 90%. The effects of this treatment last for up to six months.
