It has been reported that Botox has relieved sweating by up to 90% in some cases and is thought to be one of the most effective methods for treating Hyperhidrosis.

Furthermore in one research study involving over 300 participants all of which had reported with severe perspiration of their arm pits, 81% who had been in the trial where they received botulinum toxin injections achieved a “greater than 50% reduction in sweating”. It was also found that 50% of the total participants within the study had excessive perspiring reduced for at least 6 months.  

However it is also important to note that the treatment works by blocking the nerve endings which cause glands to produce sweat, these nerve endings will eventually grow back meaning that the procedure is not permanent. Nerve ending re growth usually takes about 6 weeks after which repeat treatment is required. At most the treatment can last for up to eight months. Effects of treatment are not fully observed until approximately a week after treatment. There is also a chance that the Botox wont reach all targeted areas.
