Botulinum toxin for sweating (excessive perspiration)

Usually the cause of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) cannot be identified. The solution to the problem, however, is as simple as it is effective; botulinum toxin. Injecting this into the skin leads to a decrease in excessive sweat production by approximately 95%. This does not affect sweat production in other parts of the body. Excretion of waste products via perspiration also remains intact.

During the treatment, small, superficial injections are administered every centimetre. In consultation with the attending surgeon, the treated area can be numbed using a cream (Emla®) before the treatment starts. This will largely take away the sensation of the injections. On the other hand, most patients find the injections painless and undergo the treatment without any sedation.

Effect of botulinum toxin in the armpit

After about 2 days, the effect of botulinum toxin is already somewhat noticeable. After two weeks, sweat production is maximally reduced. This is the time to assess whether the treatment has been fully successful or, if necessary, to have a correction made by the doctor if a part of the treated area does not respond sufficiently to the injections.

The duration of the effect of the treatment differs for every individual, but it lasts from 6 to 12 months on average. After this period, the treatment can be repeated without any risks.

Alternatives of botulinum toxin in the armpit

An alternative to excessive sweating is the MiraDry treatment which we also offer at Aesthetic Center Jan Van Goyen. This treatment is more expensive but does not need to be repeated.
