Botox treatments from $13/unit.
Dysport treatments from $5/unit.
Treatments with Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved to effectively reduce or completely halt local sweat production, offering socially important benefits in treatment of hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) with treatment available for underarm areas, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. The treatments are often effective for a year or more, especially under the arms.
These medications help control sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don't receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within four weeks of your first treatment.
Dysport is a newly approved medication in the same class as Botox. It offers the advantage of a slightly faster onset of muscle relaxation and often has a longer-lasting effect as well - up to 4 months. Although it requires 2 1/2 times as many units as Botox for the same degree of relaxation, each unit costs less so that the overall cost is usually slightly lower than Botox.
