How does it work?
Botox blocks the “trigger” to the sweat glands in the areas it has been injected, so there is much less sweat produced.
How quickly does it work?
It will take between two and seven days for you to stop sweating in the treated area. It can take two weeks for total dryness.
How long does it last?
The effects of Botox are temporary, which means you’ll need more injections in the future. For underarm sweating, dryness can last anywhere from four to twelve months.
Is it safe?
There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect away from the injection site when BOTOX® has been used at the recommended dose to treat severe underarm sweating. BOTOX® may cause loss of strength or general muscle weakness, vision problems, or dizziness within hours to weeks of taking BOTOX®. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities. Do not take BOTOX® if you: are allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX®, had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA); have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
