I sweat a lot under my arms, so I went to my dermatologist for Botox injections. Fortunately my insurance covered the procedure so I didn't have to pay a penny. I received the injections in March 2012, and loved how it limited the amount of perspiration in my armpits. I understand Botox wears off in about 6 months, however... now 7 months later, after it wore off, I'm experiencing strange side effects. I shower daily and apply anti-perspirant on regularly, Botox or not, but lately my armpits have been giving off really horrible body odor... so much that it overpowers (?) the anti-perspirant. I don't know if this happened as a result of the Botox, but I certainly didn't have this problem before.
I've already scheduled another appointment for injections and am also considering Miradry. My opinion: Botox definitely works, IF you can afford it.
Dr. Takeguchi is hands down, the BEST doctor I've ever had. He and his staff are not only extremely accommodating, but also very knowledgable. Unfortunately, appointments need to be scheduled far in advance, but that's because he's a great doctor and very popular with his patients! I highly recommend him.
