(excessive sweating)

Hyperhidrosis is defined as excessive sweating, which puts an enormous strain on many patients and leads to a reduced quality of life. This is uncontrollable sweating due to dysregulation of the sweat glands. Commonly affected areas of the body are the armpits, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Depending on the severity, hyperhidrosis can be treated with different therapy options. This includes surgical measures such as excision, curettage, and liposuction as well as non-invasive therapy with Botox.

The method of choice is the use of Botox.

The procedure is minimally invasive and 100% effective. For a lasting effect, the treatment is carried out once or twice a year. An iodine-starch sweat test is carried out to precisely define the area to be needled. This leads to blackening of the areas where there is increased sweating. This method can also be used to check the success of the treatment.
