BOTOX Therapeutic can be an effective treatment to prevent excessive sweating. BOTOX® is approved to treat the symptoms of severe sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough.
BOTOX Therapeutic is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
When you experience muscle spasms, it is because your nerve cells are sending signals directly to your muscles. BOTOX® works by blocking these signals causing your muscles to become overactive and tense up.
You may also experience neck pain and BOTOX® is believed to work in a similar way to block the nerve signals that cause neck pain, resulting in relief. BOTOX® Therapeutic can also be used in the treatment of back pain and headaches.
