Botox for Armpit Sweating
Excessive armpit sweating can be a disorder (Axillary hyperhidrosis). This can occasionally be successfully treated with topical agents including extra-strength antiperspirants. Unfortunately, many patients are resistant to such therapies and suffer severe saturation of their clothes and social embarassment.
Botox®, botulinum toxin type A, has been successfully used to prevent this abnormal sweating for many patients.At the Zannis Center, we can inject your armpits with this medication and help you to sweat more normally.The effect usually lasts for 9 months (much longer than in wrinkle reduction applications) and is frequently covered by insurance.
