Sweating is a natural process in the body. We sweat to keep our body temperature constant. If you are too hot, our sweat glands release moisture that evaporates. Thus, our skin cools down and our body itself maintains a normal temperature of about 37 degrees.
If the sweat glands are more active than necessary, your body may be producing excessive sweat. This can be very hindering in daily life. This phenomenon is also known as Hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis can lead to annoying symptoms such as constantly wet armpits and a sweaty smell. Fortunately, there is a way to treat excessive sweating under the armpits – with Botulinum Toxin.
What exactly is botox?
Botulinum Toxin, also known as botox, is a natural protein that causes muscles to temporarily relax. This is because Botox paralyzes the nerves that control the muscles. Thus, the signal between them is blocked, which causes the muscles to tighten less.
Botox is administered through a quick and painless injection. It is also called a lunchtime treatment because you can walk right back out the door and get on with your day.
Botox is best known as a solution to wrinkles and fine lines. However, Botox has multiple uses. So what do sweating and botox have to do with each other? Read on soon for all the information.

How does a botox against sweating treatment work?
A frequently asked question is exactly how botox against sweating works. As we wrote earlier, this treatment is very quick and effective. We start every treatment with a consultation where we discuss all aspects of treatment with you. The doctor will tell you all about the course of treatment and what to expect. After completing the necessary paperwork, treatment can begin immediately.
The area to be treated is then cleaned and disinfected. After this, you will receive several punctures in the armpits. These injections block the action of the nerves that excite the sweat glands. Thus, you will sweat less.
Results treatment botox sweating
The results of a botox treatment always take some time to appear. This is because the substance must take effect before it will have any effect. After about two weeks, you will notice effects. You will produce less to no sweat under your armpits. Since you sweat a lot less, you will find that there are no more weird smells and no sweat patches under the armpits either.
It is possible to visit us for a follow-up checkup so we can see if the treatment has had the desired effect. With a botox sweating treatment, this is only occasionally necessary because almost all of our clients notice the results well for themselves.

- Do not lie down for 4 hours after treatment
- Not exercising for the first two days
- Do not massage the treated area
- No tanning bed or sauna visits in the first week
Are you experiencing redness, bruising or slight swelling? These are normal side effects that go away on their own.
