Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating.

Normally, the body produces sweat to regulate body temperature.

Sometimes, the nerves that control the sweat glands become overactive and excess sweat is produced.

It can have a significant impact on self-confidence and can affect your quality of life. Hyperhidrosis can be a consequence of other serious diseases – tuberculosis, diabetes, diseases of nervous system. Therefore, before the beginning of the course it is better to pass medical examination to exclude risks.

The most effective non-surgical method of treatment of local hyperhidrosis is botulinum therapy.

 

The injection of Botulinum toxin A drugs helps to:

    •    recover normal sweating

    •    eliminate an unpleasant odor

    •    improve overall skin condition

 

Botulinum therapy of Hyperhidrosis is carried out to men and women in the areas of armpits, palms, feet, forehead, and scalp.

 

Tiny injections are administered to the affected area, taking between 10-20 minutes to perform.

The reduction in sweating begins to take effect in the first few days, but it may take 7-14 days to reach full effectiveness.

Sweating is usually controlled for 6 to 12 months.

Repeat treatments can be administered as the effects begin to wane.
