Botox in the Armpits

In recent years, Botox has become increasingly popular as an aesthetic treatment. However, its uses extend far beyond facial rejuvenation and can be used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including severe underarm sweating. In this blog, we’ll explore the potential benefits of Botox in the armpits and answer questions such as: Is Botox good for armpits? How long does Botox last in the armpits? And does Botox in the armpits stop smelling?

Is Botox Good for Armpits?

Severe underarm sweating, also known as axillary hyperhidrosis, is a common condition that can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Fortunately, Botox injections may provide a solution for people who suffer from excessive sweating in their armpits. Botox works by blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which is responsible for activating sweat glands. By blocking the release of acetylcholine, Botox can reduce sweat production and relieve excessive sweating.

In addition to reducing sweat production, Botox can also help to improve the appearance of the skin in the armpit area. This is because Botox injections can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of ageing in the area.

How Long Does Botox Last in the Armpits?

When it comes to treating excessive underarm sweating, Botox injections typically last for about six months. After this period of time, patients may need to get another series of injections to continue to get the desired results. However, some patients may find that their results last longer than six months.

The duration of results may vary depending on the individual and how their body responds to the treatment. Additionally, patients should remember that results may not be seen immediately after treatment – it can take several weeks before they start to see a reduction in sweat production.

Does Botox in the Armpits Stop Smell?

Excessive sweating can lead to body odour, which can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Fortunately, Botox injections may help to reduce body odour caused by severe underarm sweating. This is because when sweat production is reduced, there is less opportunity for bacteria to grow and produce unpleasant smells. Additionally, after receiving Botox injections, antiperspirant products may help further reduce body odour.


Botox injections can effectively reduce sweat production and improve the appearance of skin in the armpit area for people with severe underarm sweating. These injections typically last for about six months and may also help to reduce body odour caused by excessive sweating. However, it is important to remember that results may vary from person to person and that it may take several weeks before any improvements are seen.

Botox in the armpits can be a great option for people seeking relief from severe underarm sweating. If you think that you might benefit from this treatment, please contact us to book an appointment with Dr Kieren Bong.
