The actual procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes and is relatively straightforward. A small amount of BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) solution is injected into the affected underarm area through a very fine needle. You receive about 15 injections during the session based on your doctor's assessment of the area that needs treated.
