I Got Botox to Stop Excessive Sweating

Kristen consulted with her board-certified plastic surgeon and decided to have Botox injected into her armpits to reduce excessive sweating.

“It’s a problem I have had for years, so when I heard that Botox can reduce or stop my sweating problem, I had it done,” noted Kristen.

Botox (botulinum toxin type A) is approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, a medical condition marked by excessive sweating in the underarms. Botox stops the sweat gland from moving and pushing out the sweat. The procedure uses a lot more Botox than the traditional treatment on the face would use –almost an entire vile depending on the size of one’s armpit. Results last between 9-12 months.

“It doesn’t hurt. It takes a little more time because there are more injections. There is no follow up treatment needed until the sweating resumes,” explained Kristen. “It made a huge difference in the way I sweat. It stopped it. It is a feeling I’ve never had, so it was fabulous!”
