Sweaty hands or armpits is a relatively common problem causing discomfort among patients and people surrounding them. Botulinum toxin injected in the place of sweating influences the sweat glands to stop the production of sweat.
The effect lasts for about 6 months.
A local anaesthesia is available before the treatment (on patient's demand).

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) concerns about 2% of society. It is a disorder of the autonomic nervous system which produces an excessive amount of sweat. This system controls about 5 million sweat glands spread all over our skin. The most common sweating places are, face, hands and feet. It is hard to define a physiological norm of the sweat we produce, so the recognition of the disease is often a matter of subjective feeling of the patient. Excessive sweating appears in inadequate situations to physiological reactions caused by environmental factors. The basic diagnostics is based on proper evaluation and the exclusion of other organic reasons for excessive sweating (e.g. hyperthyroidism, diabetes, acromegaly, adrenal tumors)
