Dr. Solomon injects 50 units of Botox into each underarm or 100 units into each hand. A board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Solomon also injects an anesthetic into hands in a treatment he developed himself before using the Botox; anesthetic is not necessary for the underarm treatment because the doctor uses incredibly thin needles to keep that procedure pain-free as well. The Botox prevents excessive sweating in underarms for about seven to nine months, and in hands for about four to six months. Underarm treatments typically take about 30 minutes; both hands typically take about an hour. Read the FAQ here.

About [[m:####Bridges Medical Clinic
Since receiving his medical degree from Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, Dr. Perry Solomon has served as the medical director of various practices, published scientific articles, and drawn on his personal experience to open Bridges Medical Clinic. In a candid note to his patients, Dr. Solomon explains that he was thrilled when Botox first thwarted his own hyperhidrosis, a fancy term for excessive perspiration. For 11 years now he's been injecting the elixir into hands and underarms to prevent extreme sweating, helping patients feel more confident and preventing T-shirts made out of sugar from melting. Dr. Solomon’s site is full of information, replete with an FAQ, a detailed description of how Botox is used, and even a video of the hand-injection technique.:m]]
