Botox® is often used to effectively treat axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the armpits).
Axillary hyperhidrosis is a condition in which the body sweats more than it has to in order to regulate body temperature.
If clinical-strength antiperspirants or topical medicines haven’t worked and you feel your underarm sweating is not being managed or it’s interfering with your daily life, then Botox® may be the right treatment.
We also treat hands for sweaty palms or palmar hyperhydrosis.
