I wanted to share my experience with Botox treatment. For YEARS I have had to deal with underarm sweating. Socially it was devastating but I learned to just “deal” with it. Financially, it was a pain! Clothes were ruined rather quickly. It was almost like if you did not wash your shirts immediately after taking them off – they would inevitably stain. I tried multiple topical products but the sweat did not stop. Frustrated I finally decided to see a dermatologist in NYC (Cornell) and spoke to the doctor about it. He kindly advised me of what treatments were available. I already was set on doing the Botox treatment (did my research online) and advised him of this. He agreed and 1 month later I FINALLY got the injections done. It has been about 3 1/2 days now and let me tell you – I am SO HAPPY with the outcome so far. It has been the best decision. I don't recall when the last time I felt “dry” during the day. I really want to just lift my arms in joy. (figuratively speaking)
My insurance approved the injections (Aetna) and I simply had to pay a $30 co-pay for the medication and my specialist doctor co-pay of $40. $70 total to get about 4+ months of Dryness??? I'll take it any day. Per the doctor – it should last about 4 months and the 2nd round should last even longer. It should end up being a once a year process. I am thrilled with the results so far.
I'd love to connect with others who are experiencing the same thing.
