BOTOX for Underarm Sweat Reduction

Do you wish to reduce sweating under your arms?

With BOTOX® Underarm Sweat Reduction at Hello Laser, it is possible! BOTOX® has been approved to treat underarm sweat since 2004. Research has shown that treating excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, feet, and face with BOTOX® is safe and effective.

BOTOX® is a natural, purified protein that temporarily blocks the secretion of the chemical responsible for “turning on” the body’s sweat glands. By blocking or interrupting this chemical messenger, botulinum toxin “turns off” sweating at the treatment area. While sweating is an essential body function for temperature control, the underarms house less than 2% of the body’s sweat glands. 

In one clinical study involving 322 patients with severe underarm sweating, 81% of the patients receiving botulinum toxin injections achieved a greater than 50% reduction in underarm sweat, and 50% of the patients had their excessive sweating relieved for at least 201 days (nearly seven months).


Before your BOTOX® treatment please avoid alcohol and caffeine for 48 hours to prevent bleeding and bruising. You may take arnica tablets before treatment should you be prone to bruising. 


Do not massage the treated area, and avoid exercise for 24 hours. Avoid the hot sun, saunas, or excessive heat for 72 hours. Avoid hats and tight headbands for 24 hours post treatment. To limit swelling, avoid alcohol and salty foods
