EXCESIVE PERSIPRATION (BOTOX)
Intensive perspiration, mainly in the armpit area, but also on the palm of hand and feet can be a serious problem, mainly from the psychological point of view. You have perhaps tried all types of antiperspirants, even specialist ones from the pharmacy, you have asked for advice from your GP but none of the guidance given has been effective? We have a potential solution with long lasting effect.
Excessive perspiration, (hyperhidrosis) is condition which usually begins in youth and without treatment will affect the patient for the rest of his or her life. Hyperhidrosis can be localised or generalised if perspiration affects larger areas of the body.
If perspiration is localised in areas such as the armpits, palms, face or feet the condition is called primary hyperhidrosis.
HYPERHIDROSIS TREATMENT USING BUTULOTOXIN (BOTOX)
One way of treating excessive perspiration is the application of botulotoxin. This effective chemical is well known in its treatment of wrinkle reduction, however, not many people are aware of its benefit in excessive perspiration treatment. It blocks the nerve transfer to the eccrine gland, and thus significantly reducing moisture production. 9/10 patients consider this treatment so effective that they would recommend it. This treatment is used for hyperhidrosis in:
- Palms of hand
Botulotoxin treatment is a relatively short outpatient treatment which is virtually pain free. Botulotoxin is injected using a thin needle and the number of injections depends on the size of the affected area. The results can be seen in 2-3 days and full benefits will be seen between 2-3 weeks. Repeat use of botulotoxin treatment will extend the effects up to 9-12 months.
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Autoimmune disease
