Excessive sweating, called hyperhidrosis, is a chronic condition that occurs in both men and women. Hyperhidrosis is not only a health problem, but also an aesthetic problem, because a person sweats more than usual, which in turn leads to a significant reduction in the quality of life.
When and under what circumstances does it arise
"Hyperhidrosis arises as a result of dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system. This disorder is manifested by hyperfunction of the eccrine sweat glands and thus overproduction of sweat in the areas of their greatest concentration such as the feet, palms and armpits." describes our doctor MUDr. Andelová. The cause of hyperhidrosis is not only genetic predisposition, but also some medications (salicylic acid, sertraline, and others). It can also be a manifestation of a serious disease, such as diabetes, oncological diseases, Parkinson's disease, as well as cardiovascular diseases.
What can help with Hyperhidrosis?
At Dermarevolt, we use Botulinum Toxin application to combat Hyperhidrosis. This non-invasive method is one of the most effective methods with a long-lasting effect that lasts 6 to 9 months.
Botulinum toxin is injected using fine needles through multiple tiny punctures into the palms, soles and armpits, where the nerve impulse transmission to the sweat gland is prevented, resulting in a reduction in sweat production. The procedure itself is only mildly painful and takes approximately 30 minutes. Of course, we also have an anaesthetic cream to numb the treatment area, or we can use cooling cryo-bags.
When can we expect positive results?
The resulting effect is visible from 2 to 14 days. However, for the first 8 hours after the procedure, it is necessary to limit excessive physical activity, UV exposure, avoid heat treatments (swimming pools, saunas) and alcohol consumption.
Repeat treatments are recommended every 5 to 8 months.
For whom is the treatment not suitable?
The application of botulinum toxin is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as for inflammatory skin diseases and allergies to botulinum toxin.
