Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

Madrid | Zurich

Hyperhidrosis or abnormal excessive sweating, which is not necessarily caused by high temperatures or intense physical exercise, can affect any area of the body: groin, feet, hands or face. Most of these issues can be treated applying botulinum toxin which causes a temporary neural blockage, decreasing the release of acetylcholine by the sweat gland. It is a specialised procedure, highly effective reducing excessive sweating. Initial results are visible two weeks following the intervention and complete results, within one month.

Hyperhidrosis causes

Hyperhidrosis can have a genetic origin or be caused by an illness.

Primary hyperhidrosis: provoked by the sweat glands hyperfunction in the vegetative nervous system. Such glands are stimulated to produce an excess sweat; this is a genetic disorder that generates important levels of psychological distress to the patient.

Secondary hyperhidrosis: in this case, excess sweat is caused by disorders such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism, menopause, certain medical drugs or stress. Different body areas might be affected by secondary hyperhidrosis, although, the most common ones are: chest, back, hands, armpits, head and feet.

Effective hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) treatment

Botulinum toxin application is a highly effective procedure for treating areas such as feet, armpits and hands. After evenly applying botulinum toxin to the skin of the affected area, sweat glands nerve signals are blocked and, as a consequence, sweating stops.

Every area affected by hyperhidrosis, has to be repeatedly treated; duration of results depends on the treated area and the applied doses. Before botulinum toxin is injected, the skin is anaesthetised with a cream. This non-invasive treatment, is effective for a period of 4-7 months, depending on each patient and the treated area.
