How Painful Are Underarm Botox Injections for Sweating?

November 18, 2015

Need a solution for your underarm sweating?

If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating – the kind where you’re completely drenched with sweat, even if you haven’t been active – then you may already know that Botox can help curb overactive sweat glands. Botox contains botulinum toxin, a protein that cuts off the signals that your nervous system is sending to your overactive sweat glands.

When the signal is silenced, your body stops producing excessive sweat, thus solving your excessive underarm sweating woes.

While this information can be critical for someone who is considering Botox treatments for underarm sweating, there’s another question that often comes up about this treatment:

Does it hurt to have Botox injected into your armpits?

The short answer is, not really. Botox injections in general are one using a tiny micro-needle, which helps minimize any pain associated with the treatment. What’s more, Dr. Langdon mixes the Botox with a local anesthetic solution, which results in a nearly painless treatment.

Fortunately, patients who may be afraid of needles often feel more confident about using Botox, in the underarm area, as it’s not being injected directly into the face. Many patients have compared the needle injections to the feeling of experiencing a mosquito bite. Therefore, if you’ve spent summers outside without bug spray, you can definitely handle Botox injections in your armpits!

Botox injections quickly go to work, meaning you’ll soon be ready to wear those shirts you’ve been avoiding for years. You may feel slight swelling or see some redness at the injection site for a few days after your treatment; however, these should disappear within a week.

It’s a good idea to contact your health insurance provider before undergoing Botox injections in your underarms. Many health insurance policies cover some or all of the cost of injections, as Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for excessive sweating. Make sure you have an active diagnosis from a doctor, as this will increase the odds that your health insurance covers the costs of your treatment.
