Introduction to BOTOX for Sweating in Vernon Hills

Reinvigorate your skin.

Hyperhidrosis is when a person has excessive sweating, which comes from overactive sweat glands.

  • This condition can occur in different parts of the body, including under the arms and on the feet and palms of the hands. This condition can be a physiological condition or an inherited trait that prevents the body from being able to regulate its temperature.

    Excessive sweating can sometimes indicate an underlying medical condition, or a side effect from a medication. We encourage patients to see their PCP if they have concerns about excessive sweating.

Treatment overview

Hyperhidrosis, more commonly known as excessive sweating, can significantly affect a person’s quality of life.

In some cases, problematic sweating is limited to one area of the body, such as the underarms or feet, a condition called focal hyperhidrosis. Other cases are more generalized, with sweating over large areas of the body.

Botox injections can be an effective way to control excessive sweating. It works by blocking a chemical in the body that activates the sweat glands. The FDA have approved this treatment for underarm use only.

Botox is relatively costly compared with other treatments for excessive sweating. Some health insurance providers can cover the expense, but only if other treatments are not successful.


Aside from BOTOX Cosmetic, BOTOX can be effective for:

Axillary hyperhidrosis also known as underarm sweating

How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.

Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

A typical consultation lasts about 40 minutes and is free of charge for all aesthetic treatments, including BOTOX for sweating. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your first treatment session.

The Procedure

During your BOTOX for sweating appointment, we will ensure your total comfort in a clean, comfortable, and private treatment room.

Our experienced doctors injects very small amounts of Botox into the muscle in a pattern usually 1-2 centimeters apart. Both underarms can be injected in 10 minutes or less. Prior to injections, RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa doctors may numb the area with ice or topical anesthetic; this will help to ease any pain or discomfort.

The Recovery

Some patients may experience mild bruising at the injection sites, but in general, BOTOX does not require any downtime or recovery period.

If bruising occurs, it should go away in a matter of days.
