Botox® or botulinum toxin type A (Botox Cosmetic) is often used for fine lines and wrinkles. It has also been used widely for excessive sweating which can lead to self consciousness and difficulty with day-to-day activities. By use of Botox® in areas of excessive sweating, we can block the sweat glands which produce sweat. Each appointment takes approximately 15-30 minutes depending on the treatment area. Most people will see the effects of Botox within a few days with the results lasting 6 to 12 months.
