Is excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) getting you into embarrassing situations every once in a while? Wet circles under the armpits, wet palms or sweaty socks will not improve anyone’s self-confidence. Although sweating is a natural and healthy process of the human organism, it can be efficiently eliminated in the areas of increased activity of the sweat glands. Dermatology uses botulinum toxin for this.

WHAT TO START WITH BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
When antiperspirants fail
If you have experienced years of testing “reliable” antiperspirants and none has come with the relief you were seeking, the time has come to choose a different approach. Not to mention the fact that if you suffer from excessive palm sweating, there is no suitable antiperspirant for you.
Medical science has revealed botulinum toxin (botox for short) as a strong ally in the fight against excessive sweating. You may rather associate it with removing wrinkles. Yes, this is the same substance.
How botox works to stop sweating
Botulinum toxin is applied to a specific location – armpits, palms, feet – places where excessive sweating happens. It is bound to the nerve endings of sweat glands and temporarily blocks the production of acetylcholine which causes sweating.
For whom is the procedure unsuitable
Contraindications of botulinum toxin application are pregnancy, lactation, neuromuscular disease called myasthenia gravis, coagulation disorders, inflammation in the area of application, treatment by antibiotics or drugs for arrhythmia. The application must be preceded by a consultation with a doctor.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A DERMATOLOGIST
The progress of the procedure
The doctor will smear anaesthetic cream on the sensitive areas, for example the feet, for the maximum comfort for the client. Botox is applied under the skin using thin needles. The whole procedure is very fast and takes approximately 10 minutes.
Thanks to the thin needles you do not need to worry about any pain. The procedure is gentle so you can go home immediately afterwards.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Any skin irritation disappears quickly
Although botox is usually well tolerated, some patients may experience slight redness, itching and mild swelling after the procedure. These side effects disappear within a few hours after the procedure. In certain cases some bruises may appear in the application area but will fade in the next few days. Then you will only enjoy the unusual and pleasant feeling of dry skin without annoying sweating.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
How long botox works
The effects of botulinum toxin will appear gradually during 2 to 10 days. Under its influence, the sweat glands interrupt their activity but there is no increase of sweat production in other areas. How long the effects of the procedure last depends on the quantity of the substance and it can be from 7 up to 10 months.
The price of the procedure is final, everything necessary is already calculated. It specifically includes the following:
- A consultation with the plastic surgeon
- The procedure itself
