What is it
The botulinum toxin, known worldwide as Botox®, is FDA-approved for people who sweat excessively from their armpits. It is also used “off-label” to reduce sweating in other areas of the body, such as the hands and feet.is an injection product that can be used to prevent the stimulation of sweat glands in the treatment of excessive sweating.
How it works/technology
Botulinum toxin is a natural, purified protein with the ability to temporarily block the secretion of the chemical in the nervous system that is responsible for “turning on” the body’s sweat glands.

As the effects of botox are temporary, booster injections are generally needed every 7 to 16 months depending on the area treated.
