The Pit Stain Princess. Sweaty Sweetheart. Drippy Lou.
Thanks to years of embarrassing moments (office meltdowns, dating disasters, etc.), you’ve been stuck with some less-than-stellar nicknames.
Luckily, you don’t have to suffer in sweaty silence. BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines do not work well enough. One treatment takes about ten to fifteen minutes and can last up to six and a half months. In many cases, your insurance may help you out.
If you’ve tried every antiperspirant and they just don’t work for you, click here to find a dermatologist who may help you.
Want to hear from women who battle severe underarm sweating on a daily basis? Check out “Ready, Sweat, Go,” the new talk show hosted by Vanessa Branch that discusses a variety of sticky situations. Yes, they can happen.
Don’t sweat it.

These symptoms can happen hours to weeks after you receive an injection of BOTOX®.
These problems could make it unsafe for you to drive a car or do other dangerous activities. See “What should I avoid while receiving BOTOX®” in Medication Guide.
There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect away from the injection site when BOTOX® has been used at the recommended dose to treat severe underarm sweating, blepharospasm, or strabismus, or when BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used at the recommended dose to treat frown lines.
