Hyperhidrosis is the pathologic and excessive secretion of sweat. It occurs mainly in the armpits and rarely on the palms and soles of your feet. Its main characteristic is that with the slightest activity, even in absolute tranquility or in the cold, there is a strong secretion of sweat. Hyperhidrosis can be idiopathic or secondary - due to circumstances such as hyperthyroidism, metabolic diseases, medication, menopause, etc.
How is the treatment applied?
The injectable treatment of hyperhidrosis is based on the blocking of acetylcholine, which is essential for the secretion of sweat through neurotransmission. Treatment is by intradermal injections throughout the desired surface area after the use of local anesthesia.
The treatment may cause bruising at the injection sites. The results can be seen after about one week, and last 6-12 months. Avoid during pregnancy, breastfeeding, neurological diseases, myasthenia gravis, and known hypersensitivity to neurotoxin.
