What is it? Excessive sweating beyond the physiologic need for thermoregulation; is present in 1% of men and 1% of women.

What causes it? Genetic predisposition and emotional and physical stress can worsen it and it's usually in the armpits. 


Why is it a problem? It is embarrassing, interferes with dating and intimacy, and limits the texture, color, and style of your clothing. 


What is the treatment?

Our approach...

  1. Step 1: Topical Aluminum Chloride 20-25% (such as Drysol)

  2. Step 2: Botulinum Toxin A (such as Botox or Jeuveau)

    1. May start at step 2 in severe cases.

    2. 100 units per armpit; currently $10/unit. Results should last at least 4 months.
