What is the treatment?
Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a result of excessive activity of sweat glands located on human skin. The most common problems of hyperhidrosis concern armpits, hands, feet, face, or scalp. Excessive sweating is embarrassing and significantly reduces the comfort of life for patients affected by this condition. There are many recognized methods of hyperhidrosis treatment currently, but the treatment with botulinum toxin is one of the most effective and simplest solutions, without any doubt. The aim of hyperhidrosis treatment with botulinum toxin is to block the nerve fibers that affect the sweat glands, which in effect leads to complete suppression of sweat secretion. Excessive sweating is stopped a few days after the first treatment.
People who feel uncomfortable because of excessive sweating, especially armpits, hands, feet, face or other places on the body.
What does the treatment look like?
After interviewing and ruling out any contraindications, botox is injected into specific areas of the body, depending on the treatment area. For the treatment we use a local anesthetic in the form of a cream, so the patient does not feel any pain. The procedure takes a short time – about 20 minutes, does not require convalescence, and the injection sites are almost invisible. On the day of the treatment you should not drink alcohol or exercise intensively.
Inhibition of sweating for up to 6 months after the procedure.
- pregnancy and breastfeeding
- skin infections in places where the toxin is injected
