Another very popular method to treat focal hyperhidrosis is the injection of Botox®. It is a well known chemical structure used a lot by plastic surgeons to treat wrinkles. Over the years more clinical indications were added to the list and now Botox® is used for different medical and surgical specialties. Botox® has some chemical activity that amongst others competes and blocks the transmitter which is secreted by nerve endings for the production of sweat.

It is also approved by the FDA for that purpose. On the other hand in cases of palmar (hands) and plantar (feet) hyperhidrosis, Botox® is not FDA approved.About this treatment
