Botox vs Sweat

by Dr. Scott Sattler

Whether it is due to exercise, outside temperatures, or work, sweating is the body’s natural “cooling” system when we get too warm. Of course, there are plenty of OTC products that reduce some of those natural effects, but did you know that Botox is FDA approved to treat excess sweating of the underarms, clinically known as hyperhidrosis? In this case, Botox works by temporarily blocking the chemical messengers that trigger the bodies sweat response, essentially “turning off” the sweat in areas that are treated. In fact, when used to treat this condition, the International Hyperhidrosis Society noted that there was an 82-87% decrease in sweating. If your sweating is causing you social discomfort, just know that you don’t have to suffer through the summer as temperatures rise!
