Hyperhidrosis treatment in Estepona
What is the treatment of hyperhidrosis with botox?
Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is a problem that affects about 2 or 4 percent of the population, being more common in adolescents and young adults and not being strange that they may have a family history. This disorder usually begins in early childhood and is usually diagnosed in adolescence, persisting throughout life if left untreated.
The application of botulinum toxin or botox has proven useful in hyperhidrosis of the armpits and palms. Its mechanism of action consists of a blockage of nerve transmission in the neuromuscular junction, the production of sweat ceasing between the second and fourth day after infiltration.
However, it is a temporary block, with effect for approximately six months.
