HOW DOES BOTOX FOR SWEATING WORK?

Approved by the FDA for cosmetic use, BOTOX is a safe, effective treatment for the temporary smoothing of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and furrows between the brows — as well as the treatment of excessive sweating, a medical condition called hyperhidrosis.

When injected into areas that have excessive sweat, such as the underarms, BOTOX temporarily blocks the nerve’s chemical signals that stimulate the sweat glands — and therefore stops severe sweating.

Note that BOTOX injections are expected to temporarily stop the production of excessive sweat in the treated areas only, so you’ll continue to sweat normally in other areas of your body.
