The treatment of hyperhidrosis with botulinum toxin is approved by FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and is proven to safely facilitate reduction of sweating in the treated area. According to clinical studies, injection therapy with botulinum toxin successfully treats sweating in palms in 80% to 90% of all cases, and 75% of the cases, in which area of theface is treated. The duration of the results is about 6 months.
The process of treatment with botulinum toxin is quick and effective.
It starts with mapping an affected area, after which small doses of botulinum toxin are injected in different points of this area. Botulinum toxin acts locally by temporarily deactivating the nerves responsible for the activation of sweat glands.
Notably, the therapy influences the excretion of sweat but not the smell accompanying this process. The treatment does not have nay side effects or a recovery period and the patient can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure.
