Excessive sweating can occur in the underarms, on the palms and the soles. Botox to resolve excessive sweating is an underrated treatment that reduces or eliminates hyperhidrosis, a common disorder of excessive sweating that causes a whole lot of unhappiness to those who suffer from it.

Believe it or not, you can inject Botox into your scalp to make your blowout last longer. Imagine going to the gym for a full cardiovascular workout and coming out of the gym with your curls dry.
