In 2004, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved BOTOX® for the treatment of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis ( excessive sweating of the underarms) in patients unable to obtain relief using antiperspirants. a pre-consultation is typically encouraged before treatment. When used to treat the underarm for excessive sweating, Botox® has been shown to result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating. Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months but some studies have found it can last as long as 14 months. Botox® injections work well on the head and face but the injection technique requires skill, so patients should seek an experienced practitioner.
Hyperhydrosis is severe underarm sweating interfering with certainly daily activities? Are you afraid to raise your arms in normal situations because of underarm sweat stains? Then you may be a candidate for Botox/Dysport treatment. Botox® is approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough Botox® is injected in to the affected areas to help 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 severe sweating stops.
