Botox therapy for excessive sweating

Hyperhidrosis is autonomic disorder that manifests in excessive sweating under the armpits, palms and/or on soles.

The effect usually becomes noticeable 1-3 days after the treatment although in some patients it takes a longer period of time (7-12 days) for treatment to take effect. On average, desired effect gradually starts to diminish after 3 to 6 months and optionally the treatment should be repeated.
