Is your life aggravated by constantly sweaty palms, streams of sweat on your forehead or sweat stains on your armpits? It is probably so-called local hyperhidrosis, which is the excessive activity of the sweat glands in a certain area that we can solve at Asklepion with the application of botulinum toxin or even permanently eliminate in the underarms with the MiraDry technology.
APPLICATION OF BOTULINUM TOXIN
The application of botulinum toxin will help from sweating within 6-10 months. We can treat the armpits, palms, feet, forehead or virtually any part of the body with botulinum toxin.
HOW BOTULINUM TOXIN WORKS AGAINST SWEATING
Botulinum toxin prevents the transfer of the excitation of nerve fibres to the sweat glands causing you to stop sweating in the treated area after a few days.
PERMANENT REMOVAL OF SWEATING WITH MIRADRY
MiraDry is a system which operates on the principle of microwave energy. It is applied to the subcutaneous tissue, where it eliminates most of the sweat glands and removes up to 82 % of your sweating once and for all. The MiraDry treatment is designated for the armpit area.
WON'T I SWEAT MORE ELSEWHERE?
The 82 % of the removed sweating is only 1 % of the total sweat that our body produces. So even after MiraDry treatment, thermoregulation continues without problems, and you won't start sweating more somewhere else.
ELIMINATION OF SWEATING - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
For whom is Botulinum toxin against sweating suitable?
Especially for people who sweat during stressful situations. During stress, the body gives off signals or commands to activate sweat substances. However, the connection is broken by the botulinum toxin, the glands do not respond and we do not sweat.
How does the elimination of sweating using botulotoxin work?
Botulinum toxin is inserted into the sub cutis in the affected area with a very thin needle. It surrounds the sweat glands so that they become inactive for some time. They are dramatically limited until sweating in the treated site stops. The effect takes 2-5 days. The duration of the effect is individual, approximately one year and more. It is then appropriate to repeat the application.
Who is MiraDry intended for?
For all who suffer from excessive sweating in the armpit area. It is the ideal solution for people resistant to botulinum toxin application against sweating or those allergic to antiperspirants.
How does the MiraDry treatment take place ?
MiraDry treatment can only be done by a doctor. He/she will first administer a local anaesthesia. The device head subsequently sucks the skin in your armpit by vacuum. At the same time, microwave energy is released in the subcutaneous tissue and cooling of the upper layers of the skin occurs. The entire procedure takes 60 minutes.
