Under Arm Sweating

Excessive sweating doesn't usually pose a serious threat to a person’s health, but it can be embarrassing and distressing. The inconvenience of it can also have a negative impact on your quality of life. Everybody sweats, it's a normal part of how our bodies regulate temperature. However, people with hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their temperature. For Under arm sweating we use Botox. Botox is a Prescription only drug and is a powerful protein that can be used safely in minute doses. Around 12-20 injections of botulinum toxin are given in the affected area. The toxin works by blocking the signals from the brain to the sweat glands, reducing the amount of sweat that is produced. We see the effects lasting from 6 to 12 months. 

Botox works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. In people with hyperhidrosis, however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.

When you receive Botox® injections directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, your overactive nerves are essentially paralysed. When your nerves cannot signal your sweat glands, you do not sweat. However, Botox only prevents sweating in the specific area where it is injected.
