Sweating treatment with botulinum toxin

Tired of sweating?
There is a solution – injections of botulinum toxin to reduce the sweating.

Sweating is a natural defensive skin reaction, although sometimes it becomes more intensive in some certain body areas for some little known reasons. You have probably shaken a „wet“ acquaintance‘s hand not once or seen sweaty armpits of colleague‘s clothes?

Usually people suffer from sweating in armpits, soles or palms that especially shows up in stressful situations or during exercises. There are a lot of ways that help to reduce the sweating. Usually antiperspirants are used but recently the injections of botulinum toxin are becoming more and more popular for the sweating treatment.

Botulinum toxin injected to the skin of armpits, palms and soles removes troubles of increased sweating for about 6-12 months.

What is botulinum toxin and what is it used for?
Botulinum toxin is a products of bacteria Clostridium botulinum. This material blocks neurotic impulses. In 1970 it was started to think about its usage in medicine. For the past two decades it has been effectively and safely used in neurology ( children‘s cerebral palsy, torticollis treatment), plastic surgery and dermatology ( for a cosmetic facial contour correction and the treatment of increased sweating).

How the treatment using botulinum toxin injections is performed?
The adulterated botulinum toxin is injected to the skin. To heavily sweating skin areas (armpits, palms and soles) the least effective doses of botulinum toxin are injected. Drug begins to work in 1-3 days and the maximum effect is reached within 7-10 days after the injection. The duration of the effect lasts about 6-12 months.

Is the procedure painful?
The procedure is well-tolerated in the area of armpits – drug is injected using the thin needle and the pain is similar to the one of vaccination. Painkilling methods are suggested for more sensitive patients or when performing the procedure in the areas of palms and soles.
