We all sweat. It’s only natural. But there is a difference between routine perspiration and excessive sweating around the armpits, known in the medical community as hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis affects more than a million people in the United States. People with this condition can sweat up to four times more than normal in order to maintain a normal body temperature, a burden far too taxing for an antiperspirant deodorant to handle. Hyperhidrosis can have seriously negative effects on a person’s quality of life, making social interactions needlessly awkward and even interfering with work activities.
BOTOX® injections for sweating offer relief from even the worst hyperhidrosis symptoms and will have you feeling fresh and comfortable in relatively no time at all. As opposed to more invasive surgical solutions, BOTOX® simply blocks the nerves from reaching the sweat glands. Patients who received BOTOX® injections for sweating reported up to a 75% reduction in armpit perspiration within 4 weeks of treatment.
With over 20 years of experience, Dr. David Whiteman is one the few Atlanta area physicians to have achieved “Platinum Level Status” as a BOTOX® injector! This exclusive status is only awarded to physicians with a high level of experience in safely using Allergan products so you know you’ll be receiving the best treatment possible.

Are there adverse side effects linked to BOTOX® for sweating treatment?
BOTOX® is FDA-approved and has a 95% patient satisfaction rate and is widely considered one of the safest and most predictable treatments on the market. Some patients have experienced slight bruising in the injected areas.
How long will the effects of my first BOTOX® for sweating treatment last?
You can normally expect the results to last between 3-6 months, so twice annual treatments are recommended, though results may vary from person to person.
