Botox® can be used to reduce excessive sweating of the palms of the hands and soles of the feet by 80-90 % . The benefit lasts about 6 months.
It involves series of tiny injections over the entire surface of the palm and soles of the feet. Numbing cream is applied beforehand to help reduce discomfort and ice pack later.
Although once underway the injections are done quickly in minutes but a one hour time slot is allowed for the procedure.
The treatment takes effect in about a week and lasts about 6 months.
