Botox Cosmetic is injected into the skin of the underarms and patients usually experience about 6 months of dryness.
This underarm sweating treatment with Botox takes about 20 minutes and is very comfortable. How Botox decreases sweating in the armpits is not well understood.
At your first Botox underarm treatment, 100 units, or 50 units per armpit is injected. About 70% of patients will need to increase to 150-200 units per treatment at subsequent visits.
Dr. Keefe has injected hundreds of patients with Botox for underarm sweating.
