Answer: Medical BOTOX® is FDA-approved for excessive underarm sweating (Hyperhidrosis) when perspiration is inadequately managed with topical agents. Used in more than 20 countries worldwide for Hyperhidrosis, Medical BOTOX® has been used for over a decade to treat more than 1 million patients with various medical conditions. It has the unique ability to temporarily block signals from the nervous system that is responsible for “turning on” the body’s sweat glands. The best part about Medical BOTOX® is that we can select exactly where we want to turn these sweat glands off by injections in that area. The small amount of Medical BOTOX® injected does not travel very far (about 1cm in diameter), so we can be even more selective in determining exactly which areas need to be treated.
