Sweating is a natural way of the human body to avoid overheating, it performs a thermoregulatory function. Increased sweating during high temperature, stress or sports is also a normal reaction, but some sweat more profusely not only in these conditions, but also in a state of rest. In this case, hyperhidrosis, or increased sweating, may be diagnosed. Treatment of sweating with botulinum injections is one of the most effective treatments. Botulinum stops the functioning of the nerve cell endings that act on the eccrine (sweat) glands, thus stopping sweating.

Sweating is a natural reaction of the body to regulate the body's internal temperature. Sweat released on the skin cools the body. Sweat is produced by millions of sweat glands located on the surface of the skin almost all over the body. It is normal to sweat when it is warm, when we are exercising, when we have a fever, when we are angry or scared.

Profuse sweating (hyperhidrosis) becomes a problem when you sweat a lot while resting, in the absence of high ambient temperature, when you have to wipe the sweat from your palm before a congratulatory handshake, you often wipe sweat from your forehead during the day, sweating causes inconvenience at work - you need to choose dark-colored clothes or wear jackets only to hide sweat stains.

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin synthesized by anaerobic bacteria (Clostridium botulinum), which disrupts the transmission of nerve impulses. Botulinum suppresses the nerve impulses transmitted to the sweat gland, so the sweat glands stop functioning and do not produce sweat. After the botulinum effect ends, the activity of the sweat glands is fully restored. Clinical studies have proven that the treatment of excessive sweating of the armpits, palms, and feet with botulinum toxin is effective and efficient. Botulinum injection reduces underarm sweating by 82-87%. You will notice the first results 2-4 days after the treatment. Sweating is stopped for about 6-8 months, although depending on the physiological characteristics of the organism, it can last up to 12-14 months. According to published clinical studies, after this period, botulinum injections to stop sweating can be repeated.

You should not be afraid that botulinum toxin can cause harm, because the procedure is performed by a qualified doctor. In addition, botulinum toxin is injected only into the subcutaneous layer where the sweat glands are located, and works only in that area. During the procedure, the toxin does not enter the bloodstream or the digestive tract, so it does not cause any negative side effects that disturb the normal functions of the body.

First of all, you should start with a doctor's consultation, because sweating can be caused by various reasons. So-called primary sweating is caused by overactive sweat glands. A woman can suffer from profuse sweating during the climacteric period. It can also occur in nervous, sensitive, constantly stressed people of all ages. In this case, such a modern treatment method as botulinum injections can be very effective.
