You may know BOTOX® as an FDA-approved anti-aging injection, but it turns out it’s also an effective excessive sweating treatment. Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that occurs when the body’s cooling mechanism is overactive. It can have serious physical, social, and emotional consequences.
BOTOX® is Health Canada approved and effectively reduces sweating by blocking the nerves that supply sweat glands. OnbabotulinumtoxinA (BOTOX) is a natural protein that temporarily blocks the secretion of chemicals that turns on the body’s sweat glands. BOTOX® has been shown to reduce sweating by 82%-87%.
Benefits of using BOTOX® as an excessive sweating treatment include:
You’re a good candidate for this excessive sweating treatment if you constantly have underarm sweat. Patients usually tell us that their excessive sweating is so bad that they can’t lift their arms or frequently have to change their shirts.

A typical treatment takes about 45 minutes to perform. A topical anesthetic is used prior to injections. Some patients feel mild discomfort but the procedure is mostly well-tolerated.
Results will become noticeable in 2-4 days after treatment with full effects in 10 to 14 days. The effect of BOTOX® on sweating typically lasts between 3 and 12 months.
There’s minimal or no downtime associated with your BOTOX® for hyperhidrosis treatment.
