Summary: The purpose of this study is to determine whether a single treatment with administration of NT 201 (botulinum toxin) is superior to placebo (no medicine) for one-sided treatment of essential tremor in the arm (Unilateral Period). Participants will be assigned to the treatment groups by chance and neither the participants nor the research staff who interact with them will know the allocation. The following treatment cycle will investigate the safety and tolerability of two-sided treatment with NT 201 (botulinum toxin) (Open Label Bliaterial Period). All participants will receive NT 201 treatment.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Score of ≥ 2 (at least 1 cm tremor amplitude) in at least two out of three maneuvers of test item 4 (upper limb tremor) confirmed by an independent TETRAS expert by means of video assessment.

Exclusion Criteria:

- History or presence of day-to-day fluctuations in ET which would jeopardize meaningful tremor assessment over time, e.g. severe tremor on one day and minimal or no tremor on another day.

- Other neurological signs, such as dystonia, ataxia, or parkinsonism, which in the judgment of the investigator could interfere with the ET diagnosis and/or assessment of ET in ULs.

- Tremor types other than ET
