What Is Excessive Underarm Sweating?

Excessive underarm sweating is a medical condition known as primary axillary hyperhidrosis, which involves overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body's temperature regulator. In primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body's normal requirements for cooling.

Botox Treatment

Botox is FDA approved for excessive underarm sweating that is inadequately managed with topical agents. Botox neurotoxin helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don't receive chemical signals, the excessive sweating stops. To learn more, see Can Botox Treatment Help? or call us for an appointment (619) 428-4803

What to expect with Botox

You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within 4 weeks of your first treatment. If you are still sweating, there is a possibility that some sweat glands may have been missed, and you may continue to experience some sweating from the untreated areas. If you do not see a significant reduction in sweating, you should contact your healthcare provider and request a follow-up consultation.

Botox treatment is very effective. One clinical study involved 322 patients with excessive underarm sweating.*

  • 57 out of 104 Botox treated patients (55%) achieved an effective response–compared to only 6 out of 108 treated without Botox (6%).
  • 84 out of 104 Botox treated patients (81%) achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating–compared to only 44 out of 108 treated without Botox (41%).
  • Half of the patients had a treatment duration of at least 201 days or 6.7 months.1

Botox neurotoxin treatment is not a cure; your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment. Your healthcare provider will recommend a treatment strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible results with Botox treatment.
