Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a condition that affects the amount of perspiration produced by the body. The condition can leave the affected areas constantly damp making everyday activities difficult to carry out and inevitably causing embarrassment to the sufferer. There is a quick and simple treatment available using a product known as BOTOX® or Vistabel®. This product is normally used to treat facial frown lines and wrinkles but it can also be effectively used to prevent the sweat glands from producing excess levels of sweat.
