Sweat glands that are located in the underarms, palms, soles or other body sites require a nerve impulse for
activation. Without this nerve stimulation, the sweat glands are not able to secrete sweat. Botox stops the
nerve impulse from reaching the sweat gland, effectively stopping sweat production. The results are apparent
in 2 - 4 days and usually last 6 - 8 months. When the sweating returns, re-treatment is necessary.
involves injecting small quantities of Botox into the affected areas. The area is anesthetized with a topical
anesthetic 30 minutes before the procedure so that the injections are virtually painless. Botox has been used
for various applications for over 25 years and is completely safe and effective.
