For many years, people have suffered from excessive perspiration under their arms, and on the palms and soles. Many treatments were only partially effective and time consuming. Anxiety and social situations often provoke profuse perspiration in many individuals. Now Dr. Bellman is using BOTOX to safely and effectively stop excessive perspiration for up to 6 months in these affected areas. A topical anesthetic numbing cream is placed on the treatment site for several hours prior to the procedure. Often, insurance companies will reimburse patients for this medically necessary treatment.
