The most effective solution.
In most cases the origin of the excessive perspiration can not be found. The solution on the other hand is very simple and effective; injections of botulinum toxin (Botox) is a substance that reduces the overactive sweat glands fro approximately 95%. This treatment does not influence the perspiration in other parts of the body. Moreover, since the surface of the treatment is limited, excretion of sweat, as a normal bodily function to regulate body temperature and chemical balance, remains intact.
Treatment of hyperhydrosis with Botox.
During the treatment multiple injections are given every square 2 centimeter. In case of anxiousness or sensitivity the area can be numbed using a special cream. This cream reduces most of the feeling of the injections. Most patients do not require the cream when the treatment is limited to the arm pits.
Fast reduction of excessive sweating.
After two days the effect of the treatment is starting to get noticeable. After two weeks most of the excessive sweating is reduced. This is the right moment to have an check up consultation with your doctor in order to evaluate the outcome of the treatment. If needed a local touch up can be added at that time. We will not charge you for that.
The number of months that you can expect the treatment to work sufficiently differs from person to person. An average of four to nine months is considered normal. After that period the botulinum toxin injections can be repeated.
