The method involves the local injections of Neurotoxin, mainly type A but also type B. The treatment is painless, short and the effect lasts 4-6 months. Neurotoxin is injected intradermally under local anesthesia. Neurotoxin injections are particularly effective in treating both axillary sweating and feet hyperhidrosis. It is also applied by the experienced dermatologists of Cosmetic Derma Medicine in the treatment of forehead and upper lip hyperhidrosis. The advantages of using Neurotoxin injections for the treatment of hyperhidrosis are as follows:
- It can be applied to all forms of hyperhidrosis (armpits, palms, soles)
- It has an effectiveness of over 90-95% (complete remission of sweating)
- It is a non-invasive method, completely bloodless and with immediate return to daily activities.
- It is extremely safe and has no side effects.
The only disadvantage of the treatment of hyperhidrosis with Neurotoxin is its transient effect, as the effect lasts for about 6 months, after which the treatment must be repeated.
Also, the only side effect from the use of Neurotoxin in hand hyperhidrosis is the occurrence of slight muscle weakness in the hands (less than 10%) for a few days after treatment, but this does not affect the person’s activities and always subsides after a few days.
