Botox and Miradry
Botox and Miradry are two very effective treatments for underarm sweat. The downside with botox is that it lasts about 6 months and is not permanent. Miradry is the only FDA approved device to treat underarm sweat and odor. The results are permanent. 80% of patients require 1 treatment. The procedure is performed in the office while fully awake. It is painless with no downtime.

Treatments for Hyperhidrosis
Thank you for your question. There are two common treatments for hyperhidrosis--one is temporary and the other is permanent. Botox injections to the underarm is a temporary fix that requires treatment about every 6-9 months. MiraDry is FDA approved in the US and uses a type of heat energy that targets and destroys sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once the sweat glands are destroyed, they do not grow back. For patients with hyperhidrosis, it may require more than one treatment of MiraDry to get the desired reduction in sweat. Check out the MiraDry website to see if there is a provider in Karachi that can help you. Best of luck, Dr. Aldo :-)
