Severe underarm sweating is a medical condition known as axillary hyperhidrosis. It is caused by overactive sweat glands. Severe sweating can be quite bothersome and embarrassing. It can interfere with daily activities by making it necessary to change clothes frequently. It also makes people afraid to raise their arms in normal situations due to large underarm sweat stains. Most people have tried many different antiperspirants, even prescription strength Drysol (aluminum chloride) or Certain Dri. Many have placed absorbent materials underneath their clothing as a last resort.
Excessive sweating affects both men and women. Despite its impact on certain daily activities, many people don't seek treatment. Sadly, this is because they don’t realize that their excessive underarm sweating can be treated with Botox. Botox injections temporarily block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don't receive chemical signals, the production of excessive sweat stops in the treated areas. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere on the body.
Botox is injected with a special technique very superficially in the armpit area, when this is the bothersome area. Within a few days after treatment, the sweating is significantly reduced. The treatments last an average of 6-7 months after injection.
Our newest treatment for underarm sweating is miraDry. miraDry is a permanent solution for underarm sweating and body odor. miradry uses energy to kill the underarm sweat and odor glands. miraDry is non-surgical and performed in our office procedure room. Each treatment takes about 1 hour to perform. We now recommend miraDry instead of Botox for underarm sweating since the results are permanent and patients get about 80-90% sweat reduction in as little as one treatment.
If you have excessive underarm sweating and desire treatment with Botox or miradry, come visit our plastic surgery office in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Call 203-374-0310 to set up an appointment with Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Shareef Jandali. We look forward to seeing you!
