What is Botox?
Botox is a purified protein, known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, which when injected into a muscle causes a temporary muscular relaxation. This produces an improvement in wrinkling on the face caused by the actions of the facial muscles. Botox has excellent effects on frown lines (between eyebrows), worry lines (forehead) and laughter lines (crows feet).
Botox can also help lift the corners of the mouth that sag due to age, smooth out the pin-cushion look in some chins, soften smoker's lines around the mouth, and soften vertical neck lines.
What Botox does it feel like?
The treatment involves a small number of painless injections of the Botox solution into the muscle groups that are causing the wrinkling. The full effect on the muscle develops in the following 3-10 days.

What is excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)?
People with excessive sweating sweat profusely, and some, in severe cases, will sweat almost constantly. Normal people tend to sweat under certain conditions for example when ill with a fever or those exposed to very warm environments.
People with Hyperhidrosis - the medical term for excessive sweating, tend to sweat all the time even without these trigger circumstances. Excessive sweating may affect the entire surface of the skin, but often it is limited to the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, armpits, or genital area.
Excessive Sweating is embarrassing, and can damage your self
confidence, it stains clothes, ruins romance, and complicates business and
social interactions. Severe cases can have serious practical consequences as
well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to do simple tasks like
holding a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands.
Hyperhidrosis presents an embarrassing problem to those
afflicted with it. Shaking hands becomes uncomfortable, making business and
day-to-day life a problem. Patients report that they are even embarrassed to
hold the hands of those they love.
Help is at hand to stop excessive sweating problems ruining your life.
Until recently, apart from risky surgery cutting nerves, most
excessive sweating treatments were often ineffective. For people identified as
suffering from Hyperhidrosis, Botox injections can help give new hope for a
normal life where their previous and more complicated therapies have failed.
Botox injections for excessive sweating work by blocking the
release of a chemical messenger called acetylcholine. When Botox blocks
acetylcholine the sweat glands reduce production of sweat - the required

sweating problems in 2001.
