Excessive sweating is an embarrassing condition that can impair your self-esteem and limit social interactions. When even the strongest antiperspirants can’t keep you dry, Dr. Farzaneh will commonly recommend BOTOX injections to control severe sweating and improve your quality of life.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis is the term for excessive sweating beyond what is necessary to regulate the body’s temperature.
While we need to sweat to stay healthy and regulate our body temperature, some individuals sweat excessively – to the point where they need to change their clothes frequently and avoid certain fabrics and clothing styles because of their condition. When sweating interferes with your quality of life due to no underlying medical cause, it becomes excessive and is considered hyperhidrosis.

What is hyperhidrosis treatment?
There are a number of treatment options available for hyperhidrosis – including herbal remedies, acupuncture, antiperspirants and invasive surgery. For patients who don’t want to undergo surgery but cannot control their hyperhidrosis with conservative remedies, BOTOX injections are a safe and effective treatment option.
How does BOTOX work to prevent excessive sweating?
BOTOX Cosmetic is FDA-approved for the treatment of severe underarm sweating. It works by blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive the chemical signals, severe sweating is reduced.
After receiving BOTOX Cosmetic injections to control your hyperhidrosis, you can expect to experience a substantial reduction in sweat. While results vary, some individuals experience up to 201 days of drier underarms after just one treatment, and the vast majority of patients achieve more than a 50% reduction in sweating after BOTOX injections.
Are you a candidate for hyperhidrosis treatment with BOTOX?
As with all of his procedures, Dr. Farzaneh determines hyperhidrosis treatment candidacy on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of the patient’s goals, concerns and desires. With that said, ideal candidates for this treatment are generally:
- Diagnosed with severe, excessive sweating that interferes with their quality of life.
- In good overall health with realistic expectations of what the treatment can accomplish.
- Over 18 years old.
- Not currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
While these general guidelines can help to give you an idea of who can benefit from BOTOX hyperhidrosis treatments, please note that the only way to know for sure if you are a candidate is to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Farzaneh today.
