Hyperhidrosis is the excessive perspiration that affects armpits, hand palms and soles. Botox is currently one of the most advanced solutions to treat it. Botox blocks the parasympathetic fibres that contain the sweat glands paralyzing them temporarily. It is performed by injecting the toxin with a very fine needle; the number of punctures depends on the area being treated. It lasts from eight to ten weeks. The advantage of this technique over others is that no anaesthesia is required and it is possible to return to normal life from the very first moment.
