Hyperhidrosis is an excessive secretion of sweat. Two types of hyperhidrosis can be distinguished: primary focal hyperhidrosis, the cause of which is unknown and occurs only in some areas, usually bilaterally, affecting the armpits, palm of the hand, the foot, the forehad, etc. Secondary hyperhidrosis that is a consequence of a pathology and is generalised.
Botulinum Toxin treatment finds its choice in primary hyperhidrosis. It acts by blocking the nervous impulse directed towards the gland preventing its operation, resulting in stopping sweating. Therapy is performed, following partial anaesthesia, by intradermal infiltration across the affected area. The first effects will take about 3-7 days and will last for about 6 months.
