Botox® (Treatment for Severe Underarm Sweating)

We offer treatment for excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis)!

Botox is now FDA-approved for excessive sweating. This is an effective treatment that works by blocking the stimulation of sweat glands, The treatment lasts over 6 months, and patients should notice improvement within 4 weeks. It requires about 15 injections in each underarm with a tiny needle. The treatment takes about 15 minutes, but you will be in the office for about 45 minutes. The clinical studies on Botox for excessive sweating found that 80% of patients reported a 50% reduction in underarm sweating at 4 weeks after the treatment.
