Underarm Sweating Treatment
Underarm sweating can be effectively treated using Botulinum toxin.
Commonly referred to as BOTOX, this product is successful in treating a variety of medical concerns through temporarily controlled paralysis of the muscles.
Sweating is a natural bodily function that secretes sebum from the sebaceous glands and is necessary for regulating the body’s temperature. When too much sebum is produced, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can occur and may result in causing some discomfort to the affected person. For the area under the arm this can mean noticeable damp patches appear, which could also be coupled with an odour, causing embarrassment.
Botulinum Toxin type A is a product most commonly known for use in treatments for facial wrinkle reduction. In the same way that the toxin can relax the muscles in the upper face area, a series of injections administered under the skin in the armpit will act to immobilise overactive nerves. These nerves become unable to send messages to the sebaceous glands and therefore, sweating doesn’t occur. For this reason this treatment is also found to be successful for excessive sweating on the hands and feet.
The full results from this procedure will develop over a two week period, when a dramatic reduction in sweat production can be experienced, having a profound impact on a person’s well-being. Regular treatment sessions may be required for the outcome to be enjoyed longer into the future, as Botulinum Toxin is a temporary product that will dissolve over time.Book a Consultation

Frequently asked questions
Am I suitable for underarm sweating treatment?
When you attend a consultation at Ambra Facial Aesthetics Clinic, your condition will be thoroughly assessed in order for a true recommendation to be made. This procedure is often found to benefit those who appear to sweat excessively under the arms and experience a negative impact on their emotional well-being.
Is underarm sweating treatment safe?
Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX) is a FDA approved product that requires a qualified and experienced injector for application. Ambra Facial Aesthetics Clinic takes the safety of all patients very seriously, adhering to strict policies and protocols, regarding the well-being of all who visit.
Is treatment for underarm sweating painful?
Some discomfort is to be expected when undergoing an injectable treatment, as there is a degree of trauma to the skin as a result. The needles that are used in these procedures are very small, and an expert injector can use effective techniques to minimise any sensitivity or pain. A numbing cream can be applied to the area before treatment, if desired.
Are there any side effects or risks associated with treatment for underarm sweating?
The treatment site may see some slight swelling, bruising and redness, which could last for around a few days, when the effects will settle. Ambra Facial Aesthetics Clinic will explain the rare effects that may occur from Botulinum Toxin and are always on hand to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
Is there any associated downtime?
Patients are often able to continue with their usual daily tasks, following treatment. However, in some cases the patient may want to take things easy while the swelling settles.
