For the past 4 years, it has also been recognized that BOTOX® can dramatically reduce excessive sweating. If injected under the arms, it can often reduce sweating completely. People usually request re-injecting 6 - 9 months later, even though only some of the sweating has returned. A significant reduction in sweating can be achieved in the hands. Good improvement is usually seen that lasts up to 6 months. Many injections are often needed and anaesthetic, or freezing, may be required before hand treatment.

Botox® Therapeutic works to relieve excessive seating (Hyperhidosis) by blocking the release of a substance which activates the sweat glands. Hyperhidrosis is defined as excessive sweating that is not caused by physical activity. This type of Hyperhidrosis often appears symmetrically (hands, feet). Botox® therapeutic was indicated for Hyperhidrosis treatments under the arm in September 2001.
