Botulinum for hyperhidrosis: what is it?

Sweating, we know, can be a cause of discomfort and embarrassment, and in some cases may require a medical solution: Botox for hyperhidrosis.

It can be a very frustrating and embarrassing problem for sufferers and can negatively affect their quality of life. Fortunately, there is a highly effective medical aesthetic treatment for hyperhidrosis: botulinum injection.




Before discussing the use of Botox for hyperhidrosis, let us proceed with an explanation of hyperhidrosis itself.

This is a medical condition where a person suffers from excessive sweating, even without being exposed to high temperatures or stressful conditions.

Sweating occurs in specific areas of the body, such as armpits and palms of both hands and feet.

It can also be aggravated by certain dietary elements such as excessive consumption of caffeine or capsaicin, as well as pharmacological elements such as the consumption of antipyretics and antidepressants, or purely physiological.




Botulinum for hyperhidrosis


Botulinum is a protein produced by botulinum battery that, when injected in small amounts, can block the nerve impulses responsible for excessive sweating.

Approved in 2004 by the FDA as safe for human health, botulinum has become an excellent solution for various needs, both medical and aesthetic.


Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis


Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis involves nothing more than injecting small amounts of botox via a needle into the areas that produce excessive sweating. This can include the armpits, palms, feet and other areas of the body where sweating is a problem.

After a Botox injection, patients may experience a noticeable improvement within a few days or weeks. In some cases, they may even notice a complete cessation of sweating in the treated areas.

Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis is considered very safe and non-invasive. It does not require general anaesthesia or sedation and most patients experience only minimal pain or discomfort during the procedure.

The advantages of this practice lie in a considerable, if not total, decrease in sweating, allowing those feelings of discomfort to be forgotten.
