Excessive sweating is also known by the term “Hyperhidrosis” and usually affects armpits, hands and feet. Causes may be unique or multifactorial, such as: Physiological (Exercise, High Temperatures), Phycological (stress, anxiety), Pathological (thyroid problems, diabetes), among others.
Treatments range from:
- Antiperspirants under prescription based on aluminium chloride
- Creams containing glycopyrrolate
- Nerve blocking medications
- Botulinum Toxin (Botox®, Dysport®, Mybloc®)
Dr. Adrián very often uses botulinum toxin to treat his patients, placing topical anaesthesia first and then applying the botulinum toxin to affected area. Treatment is quick, simple and long lasting (up to 12 months).
