Treating severe underarm sweating effectively with muscle relaxant injections can be life-changing. If left untreated, this medical condition can have a negative impact on numerous aspects of a person’s life. Dr. David Pariser, the International Hyperhidrosis Society Co-founder, said, “Treating hyperhidrosis leads to a greater improvement of a patient’s quality of life than treatment of any other dermatological condition”.

Needs addressed

Muscle relaxant injections are proven to be safe and effective at reducing severe underarm sweating. All it takes is an appointment at Refresh MD and, in minutes, our experienced nurses will be able to treat your axillary hyperhidrosis condition.


Using muscle relaxant injections has proven to be one of the biggest advancements in the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis. This natural, purified protein works well at reducing severe sweating because it prevents the sweat glands from producing sweat at the site of the injection.

Research has shown that muscle relaxant injections for sweating are safe and effective. Clinical research shows that over 80% of patients with severe underarm sweating achieved a greater than 50% reduction in sweating following muscle relaxant treatments.

Course of treatment

The treatment itself is very simple. Refresh MD’s registered nurses will use a very fine needle to inject small amounts of muscle relaxant just under the underarm skin. The procedure only takes a few minutes and involves only minor discomfort.

Are underarm muscle relaxant injections painful?

Clients will feel some discomfort, but underarm injections are not usually painful.

Is there a recovery period following underarm muscle relaxant injections for axillary hyperhidrosis?

Clients are asked to avoid axillary laser hair removal, strenuous exercise and the use of a sauna on the day of the injections. Other than that, there are no limitations on what you can do following your treatment.

When will I see results after a hyperhidrosis treatment? How long will the effects last?

In general, muscle relaxants are fully effective one week following their injection. Your symptoms will gradually reappear over time. Follow-up injections are necessary to keep the excessive sweating from returning. These injections are needed every 7 to 16 months.

Will I sweat more in other areas after the procedure?

No. The underarm sweat glands—which only contain 2% of your body’s sweat glands—do very little to cool the body down, so your body doesn’t have to sweat more in other areas.

Will my body still be able to cool down?

Yes, sweating is very important because it helps regulate body temperature. For this reason, blocking the sweat glands in your underarms is not a concern as it has no effect on your body’s ability to regulate its temperature.
