Sweating is a problem that can occur at any time of the year. Sweating profusely can lower people’s self-confidence and interfere with free communication, careers and personal life.
The intensity of sweating is influenced by many factors: the number of sweat glands in the skin, heredity, diet, use of certain medications, hormone imbalances, etc.
One of the most effective ways to avoid this problem is botulinum toxin injections. These can be used in cases of increased sweating in the armpits, soles and palms.
Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum bacteria that blocks the transmission of nerve impulses from the peripheral nervous system to the sweat glands.
The procedure is very simple and the effects are obvious: after a few days, deodorants are forgotten, palms stop sweating and wet feet stop smelling unpleasant. Best results up to six months. As the effect of botulinum toxin starts to fade, sweating slowly returns. When to repeat the treatment is an individual decision. Co-morbid conditions, adherence to the specialist’s recommendations, and the individual body’s response to the treatment have a significant impact on the outcome of treatment.
The procedure is simple and safe and takes about 15-20 minutes. Botulinum toxin is injected approximately every one centimetre into areas of the skin that sweat profusely, such as the armpits, palms or soles. 10-15 injections are administered into the armpit. The maximum effect is seen 7-10 days after the injection. The procedure is painless and the person can immediately go about his/her daily activities.
