Question: I am a 26 year old male. I have lived my life with a terrible perspiration problem, my underarms are the worst! I have read that Botox injections can help reduce the sweating in this area. How much would I need to have injected, and how often?

Answer: Botox is an excellent treatment option to control excessive under arm perspiration or hyperhidrosis. It is injected more superficially than for frown lines or forehead lines. For most patients, a vial of Botox or 100 units for both underarms will be enough. It should last 6-8 months with great effectiveness.
