How to Get Rid of Underarm Sweating Using Botox and Dysport Neurotoxins

Getting Sweaty is Okay – Except When it Is not!

If you are at the beach or out for a run, getting sweaty is very much expected and normal. You might feel a little different about getting super sweaty at a summer wedding or a party. Your antiperspirant can help you to stay dry for a while but not forever. Neurotoxins can stop the sweating long term, so you will not have to worry about soaking the sides of your dress with sweaty drips.

Causes of Underarm Sweating

Most people sweat under their arms, but some people sweat a lot more than the average individual. Some causes of underarm sweating include:

  • Hyperhidrosis - heavier than normal sweating occurring in random situations. Hyperhidrosis sweating usually begins on the forehead, feet, or groin area. Starts in the teens and continues into the 30’s and simply worrying about sweating will cause the brain to send a signal to begin heavy sweating.
  • Excess Weight – Larger, unconditioned people sweat more than thinner individuals
  • Menopause – If you are going through menopause, this is no surprise to you
  • Other Medical Conditions – heart disease, cancer, etc. can all cause sweating

Botox, Daxxify and Dysport are Neurotoxins. What is a Neurotoxin?

Neurotoxins are naturally occurring of synthetic substances which alter the structure or function of the central nervous system. While the word “toxin” is something we try to avoid, scientists and clinicians have found an amazing array of positive uses for neurotoxins.

There are many common neurotoxins other than the Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, Daxxify, and Xeomin varieties you will often find at medical spas like Forever Slender MedSpa in Wayland, Massachusetts and Norton, Massachusetts.

Neurotoxins you have not thought about before:

  • Ethanol (Your Friday night margarita)
  • Lead (Lead poisoning from paint and old gas)
  • Glutamate (Important for brain functions but bad when too much)
  • Nitric Oxide (Essential for overall health but can cause migraines)
  • Tetanus Toxin (Remember your tetanus shot? It prevents nervous system disease)
  • Tetrodotoxin (Puffer fish)

Botox Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA)

The industry standard, Botox first received FDA approval in 1989. All neurotoxins work to stop muscular contraction. When used to stop forehead wrinkles, Botox will be injected into the frontalis muscle. Since 2002, over 100 million vials of Botox have been sold in the United States and it is approved for moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles.

The amazing medical team at Forever Slender MedSpa has used Botox for years to eliminate wrinkles forehead lines, crow’s feet (around the eyes) and frown lines. Botox is more potent than other neurotoxins, making it great for crow’s feet and other small areas.

Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA)

A comparatively newer kid on the neurotoxin block, Dysport also has had a ton of clinical usage. While it received FDA approval in 2009, Dysport had been approved for treatment usage in Europe years earlier. Now Dysport has been approved in at least 69 countries with 26 years of clinical experience around the world.

Dysport is different from Botox, with a slightly lower viscosity formulation, enabling it to spread more evenly over larger areas. This formulation makes it an ideal alternative for the larger forehead wrinkle areas, ensuring a smooth finish. Dysport results appear in 2-3 days, a bit faster than Botox results. While results always vary amongst individuals, Dysport wrinkle reduction results can remain up to five months, longer than the three months typical while using Botox.


Daxxify is the newest of all - and because it is based upon peptide technology many people find it provides longer lasting and more natural results than Botox. Forever Slender MedSpa has moved to this treatment along with RHA fillers in order to give our patients the latest technology for best possible results. 

How Neurotoxins Stop Underarm Sweating

The International Hyperhidrosis Society has published study results which have demonstrated fantastic sweat reduction results from neurotoxin injections to the underarm region. Their report showed an average sweat reduction rate of 82 - 87%, so if sweating is an issue for you, getting neurotoxins administered at Forever Slender MedSpa can be a game changer for your sweating concerns.

Neurotoxins alter the function of certain neurotransmitters which instruct the body to react in a certain way. Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport work to block neurotransmitters which would signal the activation of sweat glands and thus controlling injection region sweating.

Neurotoxins for sweat reduction work a little differently than for wrinkles. Generally the results will last anywhere from 4 – 14 months before the treatment will need to be repeated to maintain those desired results.
