Thank you for your question. If you are referring to hyperhidrosis of the axillae, or underarms, the best options are Botox injections, which last for approximately 4-6 months and need to be repeated several times a year, or the MiraDry, which is a more permanent solution. Once in awhile, patients can get the Botox covered by insurance, but that would have to be discussed with your physician and your insurance company.
The MiraDry uses microwave technology to permanently reduce sweating and also has the great side effect of getting rid of the hair in the armpits! Seek a board certified dermatologist near you that has a MiraDry and offers Botox, and discuss your concerns with them. Best of luck!
