      Axillary Hyperhidrosis

      The Benefits of Neurotoxins for Axillary Hyperhidrosis

      Axillary Hyperhidrosis Tretment Murray HIll NYC

      Axillary hyperhidrosis, commonly known as excessive underarm sweating, can be an uncomfortable and socially challenging condition. Fortunately, neurotoxins have emerged as an effective treatment option, offering relief to those who suffer from this condition. In this blog, we will explore the benefits of neurotoxins for axillary hyperhidrosis, the mechanism of action, treatment frequency, expectations, and the types of neurotoxins utilized.

      Understanding Axillary Hyperhidrosis

      Axillary hyperhidrosis is characterized by excessive sweating in the underarm area, beyond what is necessary for temperature regulation. This condition can significantly impact the quality of life, causing physical discomfort and emotional distress. Traditional treatments include antiperspirants, medications, and in severe cases, surgery. However, neurotoxins have become a popular and effective alternative.

      Mechanism of Action

      Neurotoxins, such as botulinum toxin type A, work by blocking the signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. Here’s how they operate:

      1. Injection: The neurotoxin is injected into the skin of the underarm area using a fine needle.
      2. Nerve Signal Interruption: Once injected, the neurotoxin binds to the nerve endings near the sweat glands.
      3. Temporary Blockage: It prevents the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for activating the sweat glands.
      4. Reduced Sweating: As a result, the sweat glands are temporarily inactivated, leading to a significant reduction in sweating.

      Benefits of Neurotoxins for Axillary Hyperhidrosis

      • Effective Sweat Reduction: Neurotoxins can reduce sweating in the treated area by up to 90%, providing significant relief from excessive underarm sweating.
      • Non-Invasive: The procedure is minimally invasive, involving only a series of small injections, and does not require surgery or extensive downtime.
      • Quick Procedure: Treatment sessions are relatively quick, often taking less than an hour, making it convenient for individuals with busy schedules.
      • Improved Quality of Life: By reducing excessive sweating, neurotoxin treatments can enhance self-confidence and improve the quality of life, both socially and professionally.
      • Long-Lasting Results: The effects of the treatment can last for several months, providing prolonged relief from hyperhidrosis

      Frequency of Treatments

      The frequency of neurotoxin treatments for axillary hyperhidrosis varies depending on individual response and the specific neurotoxin used. Generally:

      • Initial Treatment: Most patients experience significant sweat reduction within a few days to a couple of weeks after the initial treatment.
      • Maintenance: The effects typically last between 4 to 6 months. Maintenance treatments are usually required 1-2 times per year to sustain the results.


      • During the Procedure: The treatment involves multiple small injections in each underarm. Some discomfort may be experienced, but it is usually well-tolerated. A topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize discomfort.
      • Post-Treatment: Patients can typically resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Mild bruising or swelling at the injection sites may occur but usually resolves quickly.
      • Results: Noticeable reduction in sweating can be observed within a few days, with full effects typically seen within two weeks. The skin remains dry, and the need for antiperspirants may be significantly reduced.

      Types of Neurotoxins Utilized

      Several types of neurotoxins are used for treating axillary hyperhidrosis, including:

      • Botox® (OnabotulinumtoxinA): The most well-known and widely used neurotoxin for hyperhidrosis. It has a long track record of safety and efficacy.
      • Dysport® (AbobotulinumtoxinA): Another effective option that may diffuse more widely, potentially requiring fewer injections.
      • Xeomin® (IncobotulinumtoxinA): A purified form of botulinum toxin that does not contain accessory proteins, which may reduce the risk of antibody formation over time.
      • Jeuveau® (PrabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs): Often referred to as "Newtox," and is also a highly effective solution for managing axillary hyperhidrosis.


      Neurotoxins offer a highly effective, minimally invasive solution for managing axillary hyperhidrosis. By blocking the nerve signals that stimulate sweat production, these treatments provide significant relief from excessive sweating, improving the quality of life for many individuals. With a quick procedure and long-lasting results, neurotoxins are an excellent option for those seeking to reduce underarm sweating and regain their confidence. If you suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis, consult with a qualified aesthetic professional to determine if neurotoxin treatments are right for you.
