Adjustment of hyperhidrosis with botulinum toxin

Sweating is completely natural and serves a very important function in our body - it adjusts to maintain optimal body temperature. We sweat when we exercise, when we do physical activities and when we are hot. Every human being has about 2-3 million sweat glands on their body of which 2/3 are located on the hands and feet. Sometimes we can even eject a few liters per day and this is completely normal. Excessive sweating occurs when we see damp hands, feet, armpits all the time - this phenomenon is not only embarrassing, but also makes interpersonal relationships difficult as well as daily functioning. Excessive sweating can also lead to lower self-esteem, undervaluing ourselves, withdrawal from social life and depression. Excessive sweating (hiperhydrolisis) occurs when the body produces sweat in an amount that is not necessary to cool the body.

Hyperhidrosis treatment using botulinum toxin


Treatment can be carried out in the area of the armpits, hands, feet and face. After local anaesthesia, prior to treatment, the area is injected with botulinum toxin which causes neuromuscular blockade, thereby inhibiting perspiration. Botox hyperhidrosis treatment is classified as a little painful treatment. Of course, it all depends on how we tolerate pain. Remember that this is only a thin needle puncture and is in addition to the area that had previously been anesthetized, so that we do not have to worry. You have to wait for about two weeks for the effects of botulinum toxin.
