botox therapeutic for hyperhidrosis
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, and can be used to treat excessive sweating, not caused by physical activity, on the hands, feet, wrists, back and underarms. It can dramatically reduce Hyperhidrosis by blocking the release of substances that activate the sweat glands.
The reduction in sweating begins to take effect directly after the first treatment, but it can take 14 days to become fully effective. With this procedure, excessive sweating is usually controlled for 7 to 9 months. If desired, treatments can be repeated after that time.
