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 given in the area every centimeter. In consultation with the doctor it may be decided to anesthetize the area to be treated beforehand with cream (Emla®). This largely takes away the feeling of the jabs. However, most patients do not experience the injections as painful and undergo the treatment without anesthesia.

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.
