Botox is effective for hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, in the majority of patients. The treatment in the Polyclinic Bagatin takes about an hour and after that you can engage in all your usual daily activities. This preparation works in a way that it temporarily blocks conduction of the chemical nerve signals that stimulate sweat glands. It is important to emphasize that this treatment does not cure the problem of hyperhidrosis, but eliminates excessive sweating, on average over a six- month period. After a few months, one can expect a gradual return of symptoms, and if he/she wants, the treatment can be repeated. For most people it is enough to undergo this procedure twice a year.
Candidates for Botox treatment against sweating can be men and women who are being tormented by this problem. Despite the impact of excessive sweating on all daily activities, many people do not seek a solution or treatment. Unfortunately, this happens because they do not realize that their problem is of medical nature and can be treated.
This procedure does not require any preparation before the Botox treatment. Immediate preparation for the treatment will be provided by the nurse and doctor in the Polyclinic Bagatin.
Doctor begins the treatment by placing an anesthetic cream to the area which will be treated, and waits that it becomes effective (approx. 15 min) Thereafter, with sterile compresses and the sterile saline armpit area is wiped to remove the cream and clean the field where Botox will be injected. One dose of 100 i.j. is usually sufficient for both armpits. This is followed by approximately 10 stings on both sides, with a small insulin needle to dispose preparation evenly.
It is necessary to remain 4 hours after treatment in a horizontal position, and after that you can normally return to your usual activities. It is not recommended to put any cosmetics immediately after treatment.
Previous experience has shown that patients of Polyclinic Bagatin that are using Botox treatment against sweating approximately twice a year, have no any side effects. In health terms there are no harmful consequences, moreover, the experience has shown that the treatment is truly a lifeline for people who sweat excessively, and after six to nine months they repeat the procedure which is a guarantee for functioning without unnecessary signs of nervousness and discomfort.
The package at the Polyclinic Bagatin implies costs of the preparation, the preparation and the process of treatment and, if necessary, control after 2 weeks.
