Miradry in Los Angeles for excessive sweating

Hyperhidrosis is a common problem and in the groin area, laser hair removal and Botox injections seem to provide some benefit.  In the axilla, we use the Miradry system for armpit sweating. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles

Treating Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) with Botox Injections

Excessive sweating in the arm pits, palms, and groin can be treated with Botox injections  and the effect of the injections usually last for 6 months or longer.  The cost will depend on the size of the area treated.  In most cases it will take 50 to 100 Units of Botox and most physicians charge from $10 to $15 per unit.  Most of my patients have been very pleased with the results.  Best wishes.

Botox works amazingly well for excessive perspiration in the groin and buttocks...

sweating in the personal areas leads to embarrassment and may even restrict pleasurable activities...with some local numbing cream applied for 5-10 minutes, the shots are basically painless...just like botox used for facial wrinkles...a single session provides durable results for 6-12 months or even longer...the costs are related to the extent of the problem...can range from 50 to 100+ units...something to discuss with your provider...this is one area where botox can truly be a life changer...

Botox for groin hyperhidrosis

This is something we do in our office as a center that provides comprehensive treatment for hyperhidrosis - A to Z treatments - but Botox seems to work very well if the anticholinergic medications are ineffective or effective but have associated side effects making them intolerable to take. Depending on the extent of the area, expect 40 needle sticks or more - they are very small and with anesthetic techniques that we utilize, very tolerable - so much so that patients return 3-6 months later for more ininjections - it will change the quality of your life.
