Treatment of hyperhidrosis
Treatment of hyperhidrosis


Hyperhidrosis is a burdensome problem that has its source in excessively intense functioning of the sweat glands with regard to maintaining optimum body temperature. Most often it affects the armpits, hands and feet. From a medical point of view, hyperhidrosis is observed when persistent or repeated episodes significantly hinder the patient's normal functioning. It is also a problem when excessive sweating is not associated with external factors - high temperature, stress, etc.

Antiperspirants or medicinal products (blockers) prove to be effective in many patients. However, they require regular use and may cause irritation and itching of the skin. Hyperhidrosis requires a visit to a dermatologist.

Permanent effects in hyperhidrosis treatment may be obtained through aesthetic medicine treatments. One of them is Botox - botulinum toxin blocks the action of an important mediator in the process of sweating - acetylcholine. As a result, not only the unpleasant odour, but also an excessive amount of sweat, is eliminated.

Other treatments used to treat hyperhidrosis include permanent damage to sweat glands with microwaves, limiting their activity through ionophoresis or surgical excision of sweat glands.
