Botox is a highly effective and safe remedy for excessive sweating in the armpits, palms and soles. The botox used to treat facial dynamic lines is injected superficially in the skin of the armpits (needs no anesthesia) or the palms and soles (needs local anesthesia). Treatment results in reduction in sweating to normal limits within 10 days. The results may last up to 8 months or longer. This treatment results in a significant improvement in the patients’ quality of life.
