Neuromodulators (like botox) have been proven to treat excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, feet, and other small body parts. Botox has been shown to decrease sweating up to 87% in underarms. Patients notice results approximately 7 days after treatment with full results within 2 weeks. Results last up to 12 months.
Some patients are worried about blocking sweat glands because they believe it might affect the body’s natural process of thermoregulation. Even though sweating is a necessary body function for temperature-control, localized body areas only account for a small percentage of the body’s sweat glands. The temporary deactivation of the sweat glands will have little to do with body thermoregulation.
