Botox Injection Treatment for Underarm Sweating

Botulinum Toxin Type A is Botox.  Widely known to rejuvenate face by reducing the wrinkles on the face, it is also used for other medical treatment purposes.  It is now commonly being used to treat excessive underarm sweating.  Repeated Botox injection treatment is usually recommended depending on each case.  It is said to be very effective for this purpose and can make one live a normal life without embarrassments related to sweating and body odor.

The medical term for excessive sweating is Hyperhidrosis.  It affects millions of people whether rich or poor.  This profuse perspiration causes discomfort, inconvenience, embarrassment and some form of  emotional stress.

Botox Information
Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a purified protein produced by Clostridium botulinum bacterium.  It  can reduce the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows.  It is a simple, nonsurgical treatment used to smoothen moderate to severe wrinkles in certain areas of the face on a temporary basis.  Patients who are between ages 18-65 can have this treatment. However, there are other conditions that can’t be treated with Botox.  Consult your physician and have your treatments done by a Licensed Doctor only.

It was in 2004 when FDA approved Botox to be used for underarm sweating.  Since then, it has become quite popular among celebrities for several reasons.  There is no downtime after the treatment as compared to surgery which would require the patient to be hospitalized or be in bed for several days.    If sweating problems could not be resolved using conventional remedies like creams and antiperspirants, Botox is a good treatment choice. Study shows that there was positive improvement on the patients after repeated treatments.
