Yes, Botox Can Stop Your Underarms from Sweating

By Steph Esguerra-Olarte for Belo Medical Group on April 14, 2021

If there’s one thing that’s not just downright embarrassing but also gives you that icky feeling, it’s having sweaty underarms. It leaves unsightly stains on our sleeves, can promote susceptibility to body odor, plus, it feels absolutely uncomfortable. Pair all these with the country’s summer heat, and it can be a disaster.

Scientifically referred to as hyperhidrosis, or the abnormal excessive sweating not caused by exercise or heat, sweaty underarms have tormented many suffering from the condition. Both men and women have been known to suffer from it, and while some of them are able to keep the sweat at bay with antiperspirants, a lot of them have also had to deal with the stress of battling it daily and having it disrupt their everyday life. Some even have to resort to using armpit shields which are inserted into clothes to absorb the sweat. Hyperhidrosis can affect not only the underarms but the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet, and the face as well. 

Thankfully, there’s a way to treat it and it’s available at Belo. Called Botox Hyperhidrosis, the procedure involves first doing a sweat test, which involves coating the underarm with a powder that turns dark when wet. This helps identify where the hyperactive sweat glands are located. Anesthesia is applied to numb the area, and then tiny injections of Botox are administered to stop the sweat glands from secreting sweat. In case you’re wondering, yes, it’s the same Botox used on the face to help combat signs of aging. 

When treating sweaty underarms, Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscle around the sweat glands which squeeze these and release the perspiration. The whole process, which is totally tolerable, lasts for about an hour. You can expect results within five to seven days and the effects last up to six months! Because you don’t sweat as much, you also end up decreasing the need to apply deodorant, which rubs against the skin and causes darkening. Those who lead active lifestyles can also do their activities without stressing about the sweat or the smell. They can also raise their arms confidently, so they can wear any kind of top with ease.
