Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Do You Struggle with Excessive Sweating?

Many people think of Botox and only think of the wrinkles on their forehead. But what you may not know is Botox is a safe and FDA-approved form of treatment for those suffering from axillary hyperhidrosis.

Axillary Hyperhidrosis is also known as excessive underarm sweating. People suffering from this condition sweat up to four times more than the average person. This type of profuse sweating can interfere with their everyday lives and make it difficult to do simple tasks such as going to the grocery store, walking around a mall and even seeing a movie. Clothing choice can also become a very important variable as some fabrics and colors stain with the presence of persistent sweating. In general, it can become extremely unbearable and cause insecurity.

What causes axillary hyperhidrosis?

The cause of axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating) has to do with the sympathetic nervous system being overstimulated. This is in relation to the person’s emotional and mental state of being, their anxiety, and their environment. What situation that may only cause light-sweat secretion in the average person will cause overactive sweating in someone suffering from axillary hyperhidrosis.

Treatment for Excessive Under Arm Sweat in Beverly Hills

When preparing to undergo treatment for excessive underarm sweating you should shave your underarms and abstain from using any type of deodorant or antiperspirant 24 hours prior to treatment. Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mashhadian will perform what is called the “starch test” prior to beginning the under-arm injection. He will first dry the affected area using a tissue, and then using a Q-tip, paint the iodine solution onto the affected axillary area. Once it dries we will then lightly powder on cornstarch over the iodine.

After about 10 minutes, the sweat bleeding through the cornstarch will turn the corn starch a blue-blackish color and this will mark the affected area meant for treatment. Dr. Mashhadian will then use a surgical marker to place the dots where the Botox is to be injected. Once he injects the Botox, he will then wipe the area with alcohol and the treatment should start to take effect with a significant reduction in underarm sweating within 4 weeks. Results can last up to 6 to 12 months
