Excessive sweat treatment with Botox

It is natural to sweat and the production is one of the body’s mechanisms for regulating body temperature. Sweating occurs from a chemical reaction between bacteria in the skin and the sweat itself is odorless. However, some people sweat a lot, which may be an irritant and inhibitory of everyday life. Often the customer’s sweat is located to the armpit, which we can significantly reduce with our new excessive sweat treatment. We use Botox to inhibit the sweat production.

Sweat treatment of the armpit

Excessive sweating can be of great genes for the individual in close contact with others and therefore we use Botox to treat people with increased sweating. Botox is a product that contains botulinum A toxin. Botox has been used since the 80’s to treat excessive sweating but it is probably best known for cosmetic wrinkle treatments. The doses used for precisely sweating are quite small and completely harmless.

The actual treatment and the product

Botox is injected with a thin needle in the skin areas where the excessive sweat appears. The result will show after a few days and lasts at least 7 months. Afterwards the treatment is typically repeated. It is clinically proven that 5% will not achieve full response. This means, for 5% the treatment only lasts for one month.

With a very thin needle, Botox is placed under the skin. The treatment takes about 15 minutes and is almost painless.
Botox is based on protein substances. The protein does not accumulate in the body as it is naturally excreted in the urine. Therefore, you can easily repeat the treatment as needed.

Sometimes you can see small marks around the stitches after treatment, but it is completely harmless and can be remedied with a little ice on the area. Any redness or swelling disappears quite fast, usually within an hour and maximum within a few days.
