Stress causes excessive underarm sweating. The sweat produced by glands, more particularly numerous in certain places like the armpits, the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet.
In some cases, and in some people, this system is deregulated, leading to an overproduction of sweat: we talk about excessive sweating that can severely handicap you.
Botulinum toxin once injected will act on the phenomenon of sweating by directly blocking the actions of the sweat producing glands.
The session lasts about 20 minutes during which after having identified the areas that sweat the most, I will inject thanks to a fine needle directly at the level of the responsible glands.
(The intervention is relatively painless, before the session an EMLA patch can be placed).
Slight edema or slight pain may occur for a few days.
The results come within two days of the session and are optimal within a month. It is however necessary to proceed to another session at the end of approximately 9-10 months.
