Treatment for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
No one can avoid sweating – a physiological process, which is important for the self-regulation of our body’s temperature and protection from environmental pollutants. However, often sweating can become an unpleasant phenomenon, which can cause aesthetic problems. Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is a medical and social problem, during which the secretion of sweat and its regulatory systems increase. Hyperhidrosis occurs regardless of the season, body temperature or weather, and it has adverse health effects.
Despite the fact that hyperhidrosis can cause a lot of problems in daily life – most people do not seek for help and are not looking for cure. That often happens because a lot of people think that you can not cure this problem, but specialists at Sapiega clinic have a solution for you.
About the procedure
Botox is an effective agent when it comes to curing hyperhidrosis. The principle of this treatment is very simple – signal of nerve impulse, which stimulates the sweat glands, is temporarily blocked, so the perspiration is stopped. It is important to mention that treatment with the botox eliminates increased sweating for about 9 to 12 months. Usually there is no need for more than one treatment per year. The duration of the treatment is about 1 hour, and after the treatment you can immediately return to your normal activities.
Am I a suitable candidate?
A candidate for botulinum toxin treatment can be both women and men, which are suffering from increased sweating.

Injections are made using thin needles, approximately 10 pricks are needed on both sides.
You can go back to your normal activities right after the treatment, but it is important to stay in a vertical position for a few hours.
It is recommended not to use any cosmetics on treated areas right after the treatment.
