Treatment of hyperhidrosis
To reduce excessive sweating

Book now online

Sweating is the body’s temperature-regulating mechanism. However, there is a condition known as axillary hyperhidrosis in which far more sweat is produced under the arms than is needed to regulate body temperature.

For many of those affected, excessive sweating, particularly under the arms, is stressful and unpleasant, especially during the summer months.

What causes excessive sweating?

Some medical conditions may lead to much more sweat being produced than is needed to cool the body, but underarm sweating can also be caused by stress or nervousness, or happen for no apparent reason.

What treatments are available for excessive sweating?

There are a number of methods for treating excessive sweating – ranging from special deodorants to surgical removal of the sweat glands. One very effective, long-lasting and only minimally invasive option is treatment with botulinum.

How does treatment of hyperhidrosis with botulinum work?

In this treatment, small amounts of botulinum are injected into the skin using a fine needle. This blocks nerve conduction to the sweat glands in the armpits, and the production of sweat in the treated region is either reduced substantially or stops entirely. The treatment also considerably reduces the formation of odors.

How long does the effect of treatment last?

The effect usually lasts 4-7 months.

Was muss ich nach einer Behandlung mit Botulinumtoxin beachten?

Innerhalb von 24h nach einer Schwitzbehandlung mit Botulinumtoxin sollten sie folgenden Aktivitäten NICHT nachgehen:

  • Keine Sauna oder Hammam
  • Keine übermässige sportliche Anstrengung
