Specifically the Botulinum Toxin is injected into the skin where it targets the nerve cells of the affected eccrine glands. The Botox works by blocking neuronal signal transmissions. Private clinics will offer the treatment in the following regions:

  • Underarms
  • Palms of hands
  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Scalp

Currently it is not licensed in Britain or America for Botox to be injected into the hands, feet or other less commonly effected areas such as the face in order to treat Hyperhidrosis although private clinics can still perform the procedure. Most commonly it is injected into the underarms which is licensed within the UK.  The injections are usually injected over a small span of the infected area leaving about 2cm between every injection. Sometimes the Botox may spread to other local regions near to the site of the injections causing a slight loss of sensation as a side effect.
