How Can Botox® Stop Embarrassing Sweat?
Sweating is a fact of life. It’s our body’s natural response to cool our skin and regulate temperature. However, it can still impact your confidence, and if you have hyperhidrosis, the pit stains or sopping palms can be downright humiliating. Sadly, many people affected by the condition suffer in silence, unaware there is an effective, FDA-approved Botox® treatment for hyperhidrosis.
What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by chronic, excessive perspiration. Armpits, hands, and feet are the most commonly affected areas of the body. People with this condition sweat heavily even when the normal causes (e.g., high temperatures, physical exertion, stress) are not present. The cause of primary hyperhidrosis is not known. However, underlying medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers can cause what’s known as secondary hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis is different from someone just prone to heavy sweating. Symptoms may include:
- Noticeable sweating that soaks through clothing
- Dripping palms
- Sweating while at rest
- Night sweats
- Excessive body odor
- Itching and inflammation in affected areas
- Extreme flushing on the face
How does Botox® treat hyperhidrosis?
Botox® is more than just a cosmetic procedure used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. The injections are also an FDA-approved treatment for severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis.
It works by blocking chemical signals between the nerves and sweat glands. Exercise and anxiety are common triggers for the nervous system to activate sweat, but hyperhidrosis makes the glands overactive even in the absence of the usual outside stimuli.
Botox® injections directly into the area experiencing excessive perspiration work by essentially paralyzing those overactive nerves. The chemical messages get interrupted, so the sweat glands never receive the message to sweat!
The benefits of treating hyperhidrosis with Botox®:
- It’s effective: According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, underarm Botox® injections can reduce sweating by 82%-87%.
- It’s fast-acting: Only one treatment achieves results!
- It’s minimally invasive: The treatment doesn’t require surgery and is longer lasting than topical agents.
- It’s affordable: Health insurance providers may cover the cost of Botox® for excessive sweating.
What to expect during treatment
Botox® treatments for hyperhidrosis are quick and convenient. The injections are administered in the comfort of Elevé’s office and require no downtime after the appointment.
Results may vary, but most patients see a dramatic reduction in sweating in two weeks, with full results experienced within a month.
Treatments are usually required every four to twelve months because the nerves will regenerate. Over time, though, some patients report being able to go longer periods between injections.
Who is an ideal candidate for Botox® hyperhidrosis treatment?
Botox® treatment is highly recommended for healthy adults suffering from chronic, severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis. Patients at Elevé have often tried other treatments (prescription-strength antiperspirants, creams, pills) without success. The Botox® injections are also ideal for those who do not want to try more invasive procedures, like sweat gland removal or nerve surgery.

The days of being drenched in sweat can be over with the help of Elevé’s injection specialists. Now is the perfect time to take control and put your perspiration in the past because you can take $300 off Botox® treatment for hyperhidrosis at Elevé during the month of June.
