Hyperhidrosis is a condition where elevated perspiration can happen across the entire body or locally – palms, feet, underarms, forehead and back. Normal sweating is a physiological process that regulates body temperature, which should be in the range of 36.5-37°C. However, some people sweat excessively, which is a pathological condition, i.e. it is not required by the body for thermal regulation purposes. Hyperhidrosis occurs for different reasons (genetic, neurogenic, etc.) and brings shame and discomfort, affecting quality of life. The degree of hyperhidrosis is determined by tests in high perspiration areas. By injecting a muscle relaxant in those areas, excessive sweat production is reduced to normal levels.

More information

Hyperhidrosis affects people of different ages. The condition is accompanied by a strong, unpleasant smell, which affects the sufferer’s self-confidence and comfort in everyday life. The reasons for its appearance are generally genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalances, infections, stress, spicy food and synthetic clothing. Studies confirm that the condition can be controlled by injecting muscle relaxants.

Administration

The procedure is preceded by the conduct of a so-called iodine test, which is completely safe and painless. This test involves applying iodine solution to the designated areas of dried skin. A special mixture is then placed that causes the glands that produce excess sweat to turn purple. This enables us to determine precisely where muscle relaxant should be injected. For at least 24 hours after the procedure, the treated areas should not be washed to avoid risk of infection.

Frequently asked questions:

The dermatologist determines where the filler should be inserted, taking into account the patient’s anatomical features. The procedure lasts around 20-30 minutes.

The filler is spread evenly in the cheekbone area, with the results visible immediately.

No recovery period is required for this procedure. Redness or swelling may appear at the injection site, but the discomfort passes quickly (a few hours to a few days).

The effect is visible immediately and lasts around a year.

The procedure can be repeated again after the filler’s full or partial degradation.

  • Hypersensitivity to various types of fillers;
  • Skin injury at the injection site.
