Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Hyperhidrosis is the pathological excessive secretion of sweat by the secretory sweat glands, in addition to the amount required for normal thermoregulation. Hyperhidrosis is divided into primary and secondary. The first is usually focal, is due to dysfunction of the sympathetic nervous system and may have a genetic predisposition. It usually starts in childhood or adolescence. Secondary is due to endocrine, metabolic or other disorders.

The main locations of primary focal hyperhidrosis are the armpits, soles and face. Other localizations may include the lower back and chest. Hyperhidrosis has so far been treated with deodorants and antiperspirants without any significant effect. Its modern treatment is with an injection of botulinum toxin type A (bo-tox-dysport) and with treatment of hyperhidrosis.

Treatment of Hyperhidrosis with botox

Botox hyperhidrosis treatment has now been added to the dermatologist’s arsenal. It is the treatment of choice for palmar hyperhidrosis, as well as for hyperhidrosis of the armpits and soles. Botox (sausage toxin type A) inhibits the activation of sweat glands and reduces sweating.

Prior to treatment, the area is mapped with a starch-iodine test. Botox is then injected intradermally as painlessly as possible. Botox hyperhidrosis treatment is the treatment of choice for palmar hyperhidrosis, which afflicts many patients.

Duration of treatment

The effect lasts about 6 months, although a more prolonged effect has been observed after many applications. In palmar hyperhidrosis, its duration of action ranges from 5 to 8 months.
