Treatment of excessive sweating

Many people suffer from excessive sweating. This can be especially noticeable under the armpits. Excessive sweating, also known by the medical term hyperhidrosis, can have a huge effect on someone’s social life.

Treatment of excessive sweating

There often is no clear cause for excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis. The solution to the problem, however, is as simple as it is effective: Botuline Toxine (Botox®, Azzalure®). Injecting this substance into the skin leads to a reduction of the excessive sweat production with about 95%. It has no effect on the sweat production at other locations on the body. The 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.

The effect of Botox®/Azzalure® will already become noticeable after about 2 days. After two weeks, the production of sweat has been maximally reduced. This is the moment to assess whether the treatment has been completely successful or whether the surgeon needs to perform a corrective treatment when a certain area of the treated area responds insufficiently 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.
