Sweaty Armpits, Sweaty Feet, Sweaty Palms – Hyperhydrosis: Is Botox Right for You?

Posted by Dr. Perry in Fillers and Botox, Sacramento Plastic Surgery

If this is you or someone you know you may want to consider Botox or Dysport. It is amazing to see the difference after Botox treatment of hyperhidrosis.

No more sweaty palms and hand – shakes in the gym or the board room, no longer will you have to keep your arms to your sides. Botox as well as Dysport work well at decreasing the excessive sweat production found for affected individuals in the palms of the hands, armpits or axilla as well as the forehead or soles of the feet.
