Botox® can be used in the underarms, palms or even feet to treat sweating. Whether you have excessive sweating or are simply sensitive to antiperspirants or deodorant, Botox can be used to give you the long lasting benefits of decreased sweating in the underarm areas.

Dr. Chiu will use an iodine test to see where your most hyperactive sweat glands are and concentrate treatment in that area. Typically sweating is significantly reduced for 1-1.5 years with this treatment.

Common Questions:

Is it safe?

Yes, treatment of excessive sweating with Botox is approved by the FDA. These are excess sweat glands that are often hyperactive in areas we do not want. Just as it is safe to use antiperspirant, Botox for sweating would just be a longer more convenient version of that. It is great if you do not want to get messy deodorant on clothing, cannot get enough control with just deodorant, or want to avoid the social embarrassment of wet underarms or damp palms.

How long does it last?

Botox for underarm sweating lasts 6-9 months, but with repeated sessions, it can reduce sweating for 1-1.5 years!

Does it hurt?

At The Derm Institute we apply a topical numbing cream which takes away almost all discomfort. This is a very, very easy and comfortable procedure for our patients.
