Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is an intense condition characterized by abnormally excessive sweating that’s not necessarily related to heat or exercise. Hyperhidrosis can cause extreme and uncomfortable levels of sweating in the hands, feet, underarms or face, with sweating that leads to wet clothing and excessive perspiration on the sheets of beds.
Using botox injections into the armpits can result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating. Results start to be noticeable approximately 2 to 4 days after treatment with the full effects usually noted within 2 weeks. Dryness typically lasts 4 to 12 months and can last as long as 14 months.
