never let them see you sweat
How BoNT can restore your cool
The botulinum neurotoxin in Xeomin and Botox (BoNT) has become a widely recognized treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), is FDA approved for treatment of underarms, and can safely and effectively be used for excessively sweaty hands and feet. To treat severe underarm, hands and feet sweating, BoNT works by blocking the secretion of the chemical that activates sweat glands.
What To Expect
During the procedure, doctors inject around 50 units of BoNT into each armpit and 10- 30 units in each hand or foot. The more units injected, the longer the drying effects tend to last. Overall, the procedure is relatively quick and painless taking about 30 minutes in the comfort of our KOI Wellbeing offices.
All treatments and therapies are inclusive of an initial evaluation and assessment by the doctor and, if appropriate, the doctor will treat you right away. At KOI Wellbeing nothing stands between you and feeling your best and a tenant of the KOI Wellbeing philosophy is that you have a right to take charge of your health and wellbeing without barriers like insurance company approval, surprise costs and bills, and the need for multiple appointments.
What It Costs
The cost is $12/unit for Xeomin and $14/unit for Botox. You’ll have an initial consultation with the doctor to determine whether this treatment is right for you. The consultation is free if the doctor recommends Xeomin or Botox treatment for your condition. If treatment is not recommended you’ll pay $125 for your consultation and assessment. Our doctors will not recommend treatment unless they believe it will provide you with the desired outcome.Schedule An Appointment
