In brief: Yes
Excessive sweating of underarms, hands, & feet (hyperhidrosis) is helped with use of botox.
The duration is variable, but typically around 4-6 months. In the underarm, placement is in a grid-like pattern in an effort to distribute the effects over a wide area. Some get improvement in sweating with Botox given is distant sites. Likely this is due to changes in the autonomic nervous system.

In brief: Yes
Botox can work but may take 100 units.
This may achieve 6 months of control.

In brief: Under arm sweating
Under arm sweating is a problem for the poor patients.
Botox is effective but, it has to be repeated every 4-6 months and so it is expensive problem. Laser treatment by experts proves to be effective and permanent.We are doing more of it nowadays.
