Treatment of excessive sweating
Sweating is one of the most important ways of losing heat by our body. People who suffer fromexcessive sweating produce much more sweat than it is necessary to control their body temperature. They may secrete a large volume of sweat. This means that their hands, feet, chest or armpits (depending on the body part affected by excessive sweating) are constantly moist. Such condition may definitely make daily life more difficult and may lead to uncomfortable mood.
Botulinum toxin commonly used in facial plastic surgery brings very good results in treatment of excessive sweating. The procedure consists in making injections in the areas which produce sweat in excessive amounts. After injecting the skin with small amount of the preparation with botulinum toxin, nerves that stimulate exocrine glands become blocked. This prevents them from secreting of sweat.
