Botox treatment for excessive sweating

Not only does sweating create an uncomfortable feeling, but it is sometimes also very inconvenient for aesthetic reasons. The problem is not common, but excessive sweating may occur, regardless of the season, temperature and other weather conditions. While normal amounts of sweat excreted from the body resolve pollutants and regulate temperature, excessive sweating is not good for health.

About the procedure

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.

Am I a candidate?

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.

How do you prepare?

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.

During the procedure

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.
