Hyperhidrosis, which means excessive sweating, might be disturbing situation for people. Hyperhidrosis shows itself with bad smell in armpits, palms and foot soles.
Non-surgical procedures like Botox® injection would rather be preferred than surgical procedures. Botox® blocks the nevre-muscle junction between sweat gland and nerve so it blocks excessive sweating. Botox® injection is usually applied to armpits, palms of hand and foot soles to block excessive sweating.
The duration of application shows varience depending on the largeness of areas and the effect lasts approximately 6 months. The effect of Botox® starts within 2-7 days. Sometimes starch-iodine test helps to decide which areas the injection will be applied to. Before the injection, local anesthetic creams or ice-pack applications could be done. Repeated injections increase the effect of Botox® duration. You can go back to your daily routine immediately after the injection.
