Increased sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Increased sweating (hyperhidrosis) in various parts of the body can, in pronounced cases, considerably restrict the quality of life. The armpits, feet and hands are particularly affected. The increased tendency to sweat (hyperhidrosis) and the accompanying wet hands or sweat patches on your blouse or shirt can be stigmatising, restrictive and very annoying.
Treatment with botulinum toxin
Local application of botulinum toxin ("Botox") in the affected areas (armpits, hands, feet) with an increased tendency to sweat can be a very good treatment. Botulinum is injected into the superficial skin layers where the sweat glands are located. The effect sets in after 3-5 days and usually lasts up to 6 months. Then the procedure can be repeated, and with regular therapy the intervals from one treatment to the next become longer over time. The advantage of this therapy is that it is quick and has no complications.
Treatment by sweat gland suction of the armpits
In the case of hyperhidrosis (sweating) in the area of the armpits (axillae), a very effective and usually permanent surgical intervention can also be carried out. Here, under local anaesthesia with twilight sleep or, if desired, under general anaesthesia, the sweat glands are sucked out via small punctures. The puncture sites are finely sutured at the end of the procedure. It is advisable to wear special compression garments after this procedure, as well as physical rest, until the stitches are removed.
