Excessive Sweating - Hyperhidrosis

Sweating is a natural process with which the body controls the increase in heat and eliminates toxins. When sweating is excessive, it turns out to be bad and causes discomfort to the people who suffer from it. With sweating treatment with Botulinum Toxin (Botox), the sweating of the underarm area, hands, and feet is reduced.

Excessive sweating treatment reduces excessive sweating located in the armpits, hands, and feet. To achieve this, Botox is injected into the most sweaty areas to achieve excessive perspiration relaxation. By introducing the botulinum toxin, the activity of the sweat gland is reduced and the feeling of excessive sweat in the area is relieved.

Reduction of sweating in the armpit area, hands or feet.

The session lasts for 1 hour.

The result is appreciable after 48 hours of treatment and lasts approximately 6 - 8 months.

After treatment, the patient should avoid doing sports for 48 hours.

What does the treatment consist of?

The treatment that is carried out is minimally invasive. In the case of the armpit, starch is first applied to check which areas cause the most sweating. Once the areas with excess perspiration have been located, the Botox® is injected through various punctures to treat the most affected areas.

What is hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating?

This excess sweat is caused by an over-activity of the sweat glands in those areas of the body that produce more sweat than is necessary to control the body's normal temperature. This alteration usually begins in childhood or puberty and usually lasts a lifetime.

This can, in many cases, cause an alteration in social life, making it even uncomfortable to shake hands to greet someone, or to raise an arm, since clothes may be soaked in sweat.


Hyperhidrosis in hands, feet and armpits can be mitigated by applying Botulinum Toxin (Botox). This toxin blocks the messages coming from the sympathetic nerves that order the sweat glands to produce sweat, achieving normalization of axillary, palmar and plantar sweat. The duration of treatment is usually about six months.

Patient satisfaction is very high, since it not only solves the problem, but in many cases removes a social obstacle.
