Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

Sweating is the body's way of regulating heat. There are two types of sweat glands: One type of gland contributes to cooling by evaporation (sweating) and is found all over the body except the lips. The second type is called the "scent glands", gives off the smell of sweat and is found mainly in the armpits, in the abdomen and around the nipples.
In some people, the body produces more sweat than is necessary and it is called hyperhidrosis in the technical language. Excessive sweating is completely harmless, but can be annoying for those affected. The dermatologists at Dr.Dropin offer injection treatment in the armpits with toxins which is the most effective and long-lasting method for hyperhidrosis. It is a safe local treatment that only affects the area you are injecting into.

Consultation with a dermatologist

How is the consultation with a dermatologist?

The dermatologist will have an initial consultation where you get an overview of which type of treatment is suitable in your situation and will on that basis apply to have b.toxin covered on a blue prescription. When the prescription is ready, a new treatment appointment is arranged where the patient has botox taken out at the pharmacy. If you already have the medicine, you can book an appointment for an injection without prior consultation. The toxin is injected via a syringe into the armpit. If necessary, you get a local anesthetic cream against the needle sticks.

How does the treatment take place?

The toxin is injected via a very thin needle tip into the armpit. The nerve impulses to the sweat glands are blocked only in the area where the dermatologist makes the injection, not elsewhere in the body. This is set approx. 20-25 stitches in each armpit. Anesthetic cream is used as needed.

What can I expect in the days after treatment?

There are minimal side effects after treatment. You may experience some tenderness at the injection site. You can get small wounds where the stings are set, but there is little risk of infection as they close quickly. No wound washing is required, only normal hygiene. It may sting a little when applying soap and deodorant, but it is not dangerous. Everyday chores can be resumed immediately after treatment.

How long does the treatment last?

The effect of the treatment occurs after 4-10 days and lasts for 4-12 months. The effect is reversible and you can repeat the treatment if needed. The effect usually lasts longer after repeated injection.

The activity of the sweat glands will decrease after repeated treatments and in most people will lead to less sweating in the long run.

Who is the treatment not suitable for?

Pregnant women, breastfeeding women and those suffering from certain muscular and neurological diseases should not be treated with this method. The toxin has an unexplained effect on fetuses and infants receiving breast milk.
