Botox injections are highly effective for reduction of sweating and the benefit lasts an average of 6 months. Botox is injected using small needles for minimal discomfort and the treatment is completed in less than 15 minutes. The area is mildly red and swollen for a few minutes. Benefit is seen within a few days, but is temporary and repeat treatments are needed over time.

We learned how to do this procedure by practicing on one another. Three providers felt they would benefit from this procedure and were treated by each other. The result is that we have perfected how to do this very beneficial treatment. Prior to your visit you will need to shave all of your underarm hairs. Hair follicles are not destroyed by Genius, so your hair will regrow. Arrive well hydrated for the best results. We clean the underarm and perform local anesthesia using a series of injections into the area to be treated. Numbing this way is very important and a vital step to ensure patient comfort as you will receive a total of six passes with the Genius (two passes at three different needle depths) and the power setting to destroy sweat glands is also higher than used on the face. With local numbing the procedure is very comfortable. If needed we also have the Zimmer chiller which can blow cold air over the skin for additional comfort. The entire procedure takes 1 hour. Your underarm will be red and slightly swollen for several days. There will be mild soreness and some bruising that goes away in 4-5 days. Tylenol or ibuprofen may be taken for pain. You might also consider icing for 5 minutes per underarm every hour for the first few hours after you get home. The exciting news is that you will experience an immediate reduction in sweating! Even one treatment will lead to long term results. For maximal sweat reduction we suggest up to 3 treatments (one or more months apart). There is no maintenance after that, as the sweat glands will not return. They are permanently destroyed. We have been very pleased with the results obtained.
Genius is the most cost effective treatment option for underarm sweating.
An alternative to Genius treatment is MiraDry. MiraDry uses microwave energy to destroy sweat glands. Two treatments are recommended. We do not offer MiraDry as patients report that it is very uncomfortable and the recovery time is marked by considerable pain and swelling of the underarms. We believe that our Genius treatment offers a better long term solution.
