Botox has been shown to be effective in the treatment of extreme sweating in the face, head, feet, hands, armpits, and other areas of the body (e.g., behind the knees, under breasts, or back). Further, Botox injections have been shown to be 80% to 90% effective in the treatment of excessive sweating in the hands.
