Botulinum toxin works to stop excessive sweating by injecting a purified protein, which blocks nerve transmissions that cause sweating to occur in the first place. When sweat glands are treated with botulinum toxin, the brain no longer receives the messages from the nerve endings telling them to sweat. As a result, they stop producing sweat.


Therapeutic botulinum toxin is used most frequently with sweating under the arms (axillae), with each armpit administered around fifteen injections which are completed relatively quickly. Treatment for the hands and feet is a bit different in that injections can be rather painful and the treatment will take longer.

Never worry again about sweat patches...
