Morbid sweating - hyperhidrosis - is a medical term for excessive sweating, a disease that begins at an early age and accompanies the affected person throughout life if not treated. Botulinum toxin (BOTOX) is a neurotoxin that binds the nerve endings of sweat glands. It blocks the production of acetylcholine, which mediates the production of sweat.

Areas of treatment
Course of treatment
The principle effect of botulinum toxin (BOTOX) is to prevent the transmission of impulses from a certain type of nerve fiber to muscle or sweat gland. Botulinum toxin injections result in a significant reduction in local hyperhidrosis. The botulinum toxin is applied with a thin needle in very small doses to the skin of the affected area. The procedure is time-saving and painless. The result is a significant reduction in sweat formation.
Information about treatment
The effect of botulinum toxin will take effect after 2-4 days after application and lasts for a relatively long period of time (4-12 months). It is not a permanent cure, but a significant reduction in sweating.
