Elimination of armpit sweating


What is the elimination of sweating

Excessive sweating is a very unpleasant phenomenon that is eliminated by means of botulinum toxin.

Who is a good candidate for the treatment

The method is suitable for everyone who struggles unsuccessfully to eliminate excessive sweating of their armpits, feet or palms.

Before the Procedure

If you consider the elimination of sweating, it is always necessary to undergo an initial consultation with a physician, unless you are a regular client of the GHC Dermatology Department. The dermatologist will examine you, evaluate the indication, hear your expectations and recommend the most suitable course of action.

How is the treatment performed

The procedure is conducted in the doctor's office. After the application of a numbing cream (if it is applied) and certain time before its onset (usually 30 minutes), the physician performs the disinfection of the treated site and then administers small doses of the drug solution into the skin. The total number of injections is directly proportional to the size of the treated area but may also depend on the drug dilution method. 

After the procedure

The result is a temporary reduction of sweating in the treated area (e.g. the armpits, palms, etc.). This reduction lasts for about 3 – 6 months. After the application, it is advisable to reduce friction and pressure on the treated site for 24 hours. The applied botulinum toxin could affect the muscles of the given site, cause their temporary weakening, in addition to the desired influence on the sweat glands. For 24 hours after the application, exercising, sauna or the swimming pool are not recommended.
