Excessive underarm sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is a very troubling condition for many individuals, one which can prove both embarrassing and uncomfortable. If you are bothered by excess sweating, you may be worried that people will notice your underarm stains and hesitant to raise your arms in social situations. You may limit your clothing choices and change your clothing frequently. If you have tried antiperspirants without success, there is another option.
The Sammamish Center offers treatment for excess sweating through injections of Botox® in the underarm area. This is a simple in-office procedure performed by Dr. Henri P. Gaboriau. The Botox® is injected in very small amounts into the affected underarm area using a very fine needle. The treatment takes just ten to fifteen minutes to complete. Botox® is FDA-approved for the treatment of severe underarm sweating and works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves responsible for stimulating the sweat glands.
There is little recovery or downtime following treatment with Botox®. Some patients experience minor bruising at the injection sites which resolves quickly. Patients can return to work and other normal activities immediately after treatment. Botox® reduces sweating by 90% and lasts for up to eight months. Insurance may cover treatment.
