Sweat Reduction Injections
(Anti-sweat injections/ Underarm Botox®)
How do sweat reduction injections work?
Sweat reduction treatment works by injecting Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) into the skin under the arms. Within the skin Botox® works to block signals sent to sweat glands that trigger them to release sweat. Studies have shown that on average Botox® injections reduce sweating by 82-87% and in some can temporarily stop underarm sweating completely.
What to expect
Sweat reduction treatment involves multiple small injections into the underarms, using a very fine needle. Topical numbing cream is applied prior to injections and most people report only minimal discomfort during the procedure.
The injections take 2 - 5 days to start working, and reach maximum efficacy 14 days after treatment. Treatment can be expected to last 6 - 12 months.
