Treatment of excessive sweating with botulinum toxin (popularly known as Botox) is a simple and quick procedure performed to reduce the amount of secreted sweat, mainly on the hands and feet, and sometimes also in the armpits and forehead area. The goal of injecting a preparation with botulinum toxin is to block the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands to work, thus “turning off” their activity.

Indications for the procedure:

  • Excessive sweating of the hands, feet, armpits and forehead.

The course of the procedure

Before the procedure, a thorough medical consultation is required, during which Minor’s starch iodine test is usually performed. It involves applying potassium iodide and potato starch to areas with increased sweating. After a few minutes, the places with increased sweating darken and on this basis it is possible to determine the areas where botulinum toxin should be injected.

The effects appear after 7 days and last up to 6 to 8 months.

Post-treatment recommendations

The patient can return to their daily activities almost immediately after the procedure.

After the procedure, small injection marks may appear, which disappear within 24 hours after the procedure. There may occur temporary tingling sensation and slight swelling.
