Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Take control of your excessive underarm sweating today!

You may have thought Botox® was used only for cosmetic procedures, but in 2004 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the same formulation (Botulinum Toxin Type A) for treatment of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating) when antiperspirants fail.

Don't let sweat hold you back – explore a new level of confidence and comfort

Botox neurotoxin treatment helps control excessive underarm sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the excessive sweating stops.

Research has shown that treating the armpits with botulinum toxin is safe and effective. In one clinical study involving 322 patients with severe underarm sweating, 81% of the patients receiving botulinum toxin injections achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating. And, 50% of the patients had their excessive sweating relieved for at least 201 days (nearly 7 months).

At The Center For Excellence In Dermatology, we specialize in administering Botox injections to address Axillary Hyperhidrosis. Unlike Botox treatments for cosmetic enhancements, our Botox therapy for hyperhidrosis is frequently eligible for insurance coverage.
