Botulinum toxin

(Botox®, DySport® ou Xeomin®)

Clinical Dermatology > Perspiration

Botulinum toxin is the substance responsible for the major revolution in Cosmiatry treatments. With a recommendation for rejuvenation, it is also a highly effective and safe alternative for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. By blocking sweat stimulation near the glands, botulinum toxin temporarily reduces sweat production for a period ranging from 4 to 10 months. The transient chemical suppression of sweating with botulinum toxin creates safety, since the patient is aware of “being able to stop sweating when he wants”, simply reapplying the toxin, a privilege that was not previously possessed. This causes the vicious circle to break because the initial trigger for sweating is disabled. We use 3 brands of toxin to treat hyperhidrosis. They are: Botox® manufactured by the Allergan laboratory; Dysport® manufactured by Ipsen lab and Xeomin® manufactured by Merz lab.

This procedure is performed in the clinic, using anesthetic ointment. The application takes on average 20 minutes for the armpit and 40 minutes for the hands. The return to professional activities can be immediate, and the practice of physical exercises the day after the application.
