Can Botox Work for Excessive Underarm Sweating

October 10, 2015


If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating, it’s safe to say you’ve probably tried almost every clinical strength antiperspirant at your local drugstore. Yet no matter how strong or long-lasting the product claims to be, you find yourself drenched with underarm sweat after just a few minutes.

Excessive underarm sweating is an embarrassing and pervasive condition that can degrade a person’s quality of life. This kind of sweating is usually not associated with other medical conditions and is caused by persistent stimulation of sweat glands by the sympathetic nervous system, even when body temperature is normal.

Because the nerve stimulus of the sweat glands is the problem, treatment to inhibit the nerve function can be very effective.

Botox for Excessive Underarm Sweating

One surprising solutions for underarm sweating is Botox, an injectable that’s more commonly used for the treatment of facial wrinkles. Botox is comprised of botulinum toxin, a type of protein that inactivates nerve endings in the injection site.
