Botulinum toxin in the upper floor, underarms, palms

Botulinum toxin is a natural and purified protein that temporarily blocks the secretion of chemicals in the nervous system responsible for “starting” the sweat glands. By blocking or interrupting this chemical transmitter, botulinum toxin “stops” the sweat glands in the skin where it is injected.


Botulinum toxin has been approved for hyperhidrosis of the palms, feet and underarms.

Botulinum toxin is administered only by a dermatologist who has been trained and has experience with such a procedure. The injection is done in the medical practice, in about 20 minutes and does not require further restriction of professional or recreational activities.


During the procedure, with the help of a fine needle, small volumes of botulinum toxin are injected intradermally, into the sweat glands that cause excessive sweating.


The physician is the one approximating the number of injections depending on the area to be treated. Injection at the level of the palms or feet may be more painful. In this case, various local anaesthesia techniques can be used.


The effect sets in 2-14 days and lasts 6-8 months. Botulinum toxin does not permanently cure hyperhidrosis, so the symptoms will gradually return. Subsequent injections, repeated every 6-16 months, will be needed.



What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which sweating is excessive and occurs without these triggers. Most likely, hyperhidrosis is due to excessive stimulation of the sweat glands by the nervous system. It can be said that people suffering from this condition have their sweat glands blocked in the “ON” position.


When excessive sweating occurs without any cause, it is called primary hyperhidrosis and is more common than the secondary form, which occurs as a result of another medical condition or as an adverse effect of some medicines.


Primary hyperhidrosis is usually located on a certain part of the body, often the hands, feet, underarms or face, and is symmetrical. It often begins in childhood or adolescence, frequently in the hands and feet, and persists throughout life. Interestingly, although people with localized primary hyperhidrosis have episodes of excessive sweating at least once a week, they usually do not sweat during sleep.


Who can benefit from botulinum toxin treatment?

Botulinum toxin injections are dedicated to both ladies and gentlemen who face the problem of excessive sweating in the upper floor, underarms and palms.


The beneficiaries of such treatment are those who have tried alternative methods to stop excessive sweating, but have not achieved the desired results, which is why botulinum toxin is seen as a guaranteed solution to the embarrassing situations in which they find themselves because of this.


At the time of treatment, the specialist will approve or reject the procedure for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.


When should the procedure be repeated?

Botulinum toxin treatment sessions are repeated every 4-6 months, or even once a year, depending on the quality of the botulinum toxin.


A more often injection with botulinum toxin is forbidden, as a single session provides results lasting up to eight months, during which time the areas where the injection was given will be protected from excessive sweating.


The repetition of the procedure follows the same principle, but the specialist may refuse to inject botulinum toxin if, in the meantime, the patient becomes pregnant or follows a treatment that is not compatible with botulinum toxin.
