The smell of sweat and sweat stains are not pleasant for anyone. Who isn’t familiar with them, the dark stains that tend to appear on white blouses or shirts in the armpit area? But not everyone sweats the same amount – and not everyone suffers equally.

Do you want to get rid of excessive perspiration?
Botulinum toxin (Botox) can help with excessive sweating – it inhibits sweat production. Injected into the armpit, it temporarily calms the muscles of our sweat glands. This has no effect on thermoregulation, as only 5% of sweat glands are located in the armpits. The effect wears off after a few months. You will be sweat-free after just 5-7 days, and the Botox treatment only takes a few minutes to leave you sweat-free for months.

from € 600

Increased sweating can have various causes. As sweating is often a symptom of illness or hormonal changes in the body, it is always advisable to first investigate the cause before focussing purely on treating the symptoms. If an otherwise healthy person is sweating profusely, this is referred to as “primary hyperhidrosis”. This can occur in various places, often on the soles of the feet (sweaty feet) or palms. Around 1 to 5 people out of 100 have primary hyperhidrosis.

This is absolutely harmless to the health of those affected. However, some people find it massively stressful, so that their lives and social interaction are severely restricted.

Sweat has an important excretory and detoxification function for the body and also serves to cool us down and regulate our temperature. However, sweat in the armpits only accounts for two per cent of total sweat secretion, which is why it is not a problem for the body to do without it.

Depending on the size of the treated area, around €600 – €700.

Admittedly, this is somewhat expensive, as a significantly larger amount of Botox is required than for a facial treatment, for example. Caution is advised with cheap providers: A significant price reduction can only be achieved by greatly diluting the active ingredient – and thereby “diluting” the effect just as much.
