What is Botox for Underarm Sweating?

Doctor Injecting Botox For Under Arms To Female Patient

Botox for Underarm Sweating is a procedure known for its power to reduce armpit sweating. This injection therapy is approved by the FDA to treat underarm hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) as well as other areas of the body.

A Botox injection contains neurotoxins that assist the functions and structure of your nervous system. In other words, it can assist in modifying the functions of the neurotransmitters involved in excessive perspiration. Therefore, the injection will block the neurotransmitters that signal your sweat glands to activate. This will lead to a process of decreasing and regulating excessive sweating in the treated region.

Causes and Symptoms of Underarm Sweating

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweating, is an uncomfortable condition that goes beyond the normal perspiration caused by heat, activity, or emotions. In order to understand it better, you can find below the causes and recognize the main signs of underarm sweating.

Causes of Underarm Sweating:

  • Sweat Glands Hyperactivity: Even in a lack of heat or physical activity, the nerves that normally cause sweating may become hyperactive and activate the sweat glands.
  • Diabetes: Diabetes can negatively impact the body by overstimulating the sweat glands. As a result, it is more difficult to maintain a constant internal body temperature. 
  • Menopause: Hot flashes and night sweats are two of the most prevalent menopausal symptoms, both of which produce excessive sweating.
  • Primary Hyperhidrosis: Primary hyperhidrosis can be caused by wrong nerve impulses, which cause eccrine sweat glands to work excessively.
  • Secondary Hyperhidrosis: Axillary hyperhidrosis can be caused by sympathetic nerve overactivity. It’s called secondary because a secondary reason, such as a medical condition or medicine, might also contribute to it.
  • Use of Certain Drugs: Certain drugs like antidepressants and opioids can cause excessive underarm sweating.

  • Heavy Sweating: Heavy sweating is excessive sweating that can occur regardless of high temperature or high-intensity exercise.
