Some Physicians use BOTOX® to reduce sweating and make a series of small injections that paralyze the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. Unfortunately, BOTOX® injections are a temporary solution - painful and expensive - and the effects only last from four to six months. You will need to have the injections about two or three times a year.
Patients with Palmar Hyperhidrosis who tried the BOTOX® injections were generally speaking unhappy with the treatment because of the pain and the cost involved. Some of them also had to be put under general anesthesia due to the intense pain caused by the injections into the palmar areas. Still if a patient wants to try BOTOX® injections then any dermatologist who is familiar with BOTOX® injections can do it.
Myobloc is another variant of the botulinum toxin. Basically it is the same as Botox but it comes in a different concentration and the final action is exactly the same as with Botox. There might be some differences in price but this information can be obtained from the treating physician.
