Botox for Sweating Problems
Botox is a non-surgical application designed to remove wrinkles on skin. Botox is also the name of a bacterially derived protein called Clostridium Botulinum. This protein has long been used for eye treatments and neurological disorders. Botox treatment that is among the well-known aesthetic treatments is also a little-known sweating treatment. Botox treatment is particularly popular in summer time to prevent excessive palmar (hand) and armpit sweating (hyperhidrosis). Botox treatment is a temporary application and ensures successful results with flexible solutions especially for excessive sweating problems. In terms of health, it is suitable to periodically control sweating that is among the basic functions of the body.
Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) Treatments
The basic principle of botox applications is to temporarily stop the nerve communication in the application area. Based on this principle, botox application applied to the sweating area stops the communication the cholinergic nerves that cause excessive sweating in the application area. With this application, the application area stops sweating function. Botox application can be performed to the areas with excessive sweating before the summer months. Application dose is determined based on the test results. Because botox application is painless, it can be preferred very easily. After the botox treatments applied to armpit, palms or feet, pain relief creams can be used according to the patient’s condition. There is no healing process after the treatment. No dressing is required and the patient can continue his/her routine life after the application.

The effect of armpit treatment lasts for 6-8 months. For the people who have facial sweating problems, botox treatment is applied through the scalp area. This treatment takes about 20 minutes.
