Sweat Reduction With Botox In Armpit, Hands, and Face

Botox in armpit, face, or hands can effectively treat excessive sweating, with outcomes lasting between 4-6 months. Botox blocks nerves, stopping signals to sweat glands when injected into the skin.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a physiological condition in which sweat glands produce excess sweat. This sweat is unrelated to heat or activity due to overactive nerves. It often has a genetic cause and can lead to social stress. Studies show that 1-3% of the UK population suffers from excessive sweating.

Hyperhidrosis may either be:

  • Generalized Hyperhidrosis (Whole Body)
  • Focal Hyperhidrosis (Hands, Feet, Armpits, Face, Groin or Scalp)

Botox In Armpit (Underarms)

Botox in armpit (underarms) tackles excessive sweating, a common concern.  This area causes much concern due to visible stains on shirts and sweat patches on clothes.  After finding topical products ineffective or irritating, clients often choose Botox in the armpit (underarms). The absence of nearby small muscles minimizes the risk of side effects from high-dose injections.

Botox in Hands (Palms and Fingers)

Sweaty palms and fingers are a common cause of social embarrassment in many people, and they can be effectively treated with Botox. The fingers are easy to treat, but the palms require skilful knowledge of anatomy, as tiny fingers may be affected adversely.

Botox For Face Sweating & Blushing/Flushing

Botox for facial sweating can target typical areas like the forehead, scalp, cheeks, and nose, using a micro-tox technique to avoid muscle weakening. These same nerves also contribute to flushing and blushing, making Botox effective for managing facial blushing.

Excessive Sweating Causes

Certain sweat glands in hyperhidrosis work overtime for no apparent reason. Thus producing sweat that your body does not need. Some of the commonly known factors that can even make sweating worse are:

  • Genetics
  • Emotional Or Mental Stress
  • Menopause
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Certain oral medications for heart health

Benefits Of Botox In Armpit, Body, or Face

Botox in armpit, body, and face treatments are popular because:

  • Little to no pain or discomfort
  • Immediate return to daily activities
  • Lasting effects for 4-8 months

Botulinum toxin injections could be considered one of the most effective treatments for excessive sweating, acting as a medical-grade antiperspirant.

Assessing Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale (HDSS)

HDS is a point scale (sweat test) that sets specific benchmarks to rate the seriousness of a patient’s condition. Moreover, it evaluates how much excessive sweating interferes with the patient’s daily working routine and activities and what factors make their sweating worse.

We treat:

Moreover, a medical study suggests the usage of high doses to relax sweat glands has long-lasting results. This approach allows anti-sweat injections to treat excessive sweating quite effectively. Therefore, we use an appropriate amount of Botox for the treatment.

Doses Of Botox in Armpit

The dosage of Botox in armpit depends on the size of the underarm area. We aim to inject a concentrated dose per square centimeter, covering the entire hairy patch area of the underarm. Studies have revealed that a higher dose is safe, effective, and long-lasting. We aim to reduce the excess sweating in the armpit by more than 50-75%.

How to Prepare for the Hyperhidrosis Treatment

  • Botox for underarm sweating – arrive at your appointment with shaved underarms (males and females).  Preferably, shave a few days before treatment date.
  • Choose loose fitting top, or a sleeveless shirt is preferred because you will need to expose the area for treatment.

Am I suitable for Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Individuals over the age of 18 years, experiencing severe hyperhidrosis symptoms are fit for this treatment. Such patients have mostly tried and tested other options such as antiperspirants claiming to absorb moisture and control sweating without any success.

There may be slight chest pain from your Botox treatment of hyperhidrosis. Nevertheless, all these side effects are temporary and usually subside on their own in a few days.

Is Botox in Armpit Safe?

Botox in armpit is a safe solution for excessive sweating, supported by millions of successful treatments worldwide.

Numerous medical studies support this treatment, available through the NHS in specific limited capacities due to funding constraints.

How does Botox for sweating work?

Botox works by temporarily blocking the chemical messages in nerves to sweat glands of the areas that sweat excessively. Therefore, the sweat glands never receive the command to produce perspiration.

How long does botox in armpit last?

Botox in armpit may last anywhere from 4-6 months.  The duration of treatment is dependent on the severity of your condition as well as metabolism

It is Okay to wax and shave after the Treatment?

You can wax, shave, or laser hair removal on the treated regions 24 hours after your treatment. Many patients generally remove the hair before botox for underarm sweating.

What is Sweat Rash?

Sweat rash is a skin irritation that happens when your skin is wet and subjected to rubbing.
Excess sweating can cause:

  • Rash under your armpits due to armpit sweat
  • Sweat rash under breasts or sweat rash between breasts
  • Groin sweat rash
  • Sweat rash on chest
  • Fungal sweat rash on feet

Sweat rash commonly appears in areas where the skin rubs together and has little to no airflow.

As a result, many patients with severe cases of perspiration complain of sweat rash with burns, stings or itches.
