Excessive underarm sweating is a medical condition that involves production of sweat in excess of what your body needs to maintain its temperature. The excessive sweating can occur even in cool temperatures and without physical exertion. People with the condition often change clothes frequently, put absorbent material under clothing, and have tried numerous topical anti­perspirants without success. Stress can aggravate the symptoms. This condition can cause anxiety and feelings of self-consciousness.

BOTOX® is FDA­ approved for severe underarm sweating when topical agents don’t work. BOTOX® treatment helps control this situation by temporarily inhibiting the sweat glands. During the procedure, a small amount of Botox is injected through a very fine needle into the affected underarm area. This procedure is a quick and very effective in office procedure with no downtime. Results typically last 7­-8 months and require repeat treatments for the effects to be maintained. Some insurance plans may cover this procedure.
