- Treatment with the Botulinum Toxin - Efficiency length of the
In Naturale Clinic’s researches, we observed that the suppression of
Hyperhidrosis does not last the same for all patients. In the case of the armpit,
the chemical blocking action is efficient for an average of 7,33 months, varying
from 4 to 12 months. With the evolution of the technique, the efficiency of
this substance is going to be increased.
There is also another very important effect of the Botulinum Toxin called Psychological
Residual " Positive Effect ". What happens is that, once applied,
the Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX® / Dysport) will cause the suppression of the sweating
for the length of time mentioned above. However, we have noticed that although
the chemical effect disappears after this period of time, the patients take
longer to return for new injections. Even taking longer to re-inject the substance,
92% refer an improvement in their quality of life. Another important fact is
that 61% of the patients, refer that Hyperhidrosis reappeared in smaller amounts
than the initial phase.
Almost all the patients present “The Trigger for Hyperhidrosis Syndrome”,
a condition we have already described. That means that when they notice they
are going to start sweating, they sweat even more. That is a result of an anxiety
process generated by the patient’s conscience.
Recent reports associate Hyperhidrosis to genetic basis. However, psychological
alterations are easily perceptible in the patients who suffer from hyperhidrosis.
In old times, these psychological alterations motivated the use of medicines
and psychological treatment, with no uniform results.
We believed that the psychological alterations are consequences and not the
cause of Hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is observed even in children of very
young age who haven’t been submitted to the psychological processes of
life. This is a strong argument against the psychological causes of the problem.
However, many patient refer that Hyperhidrosis appear or is worsened when they
are submitted to pressures of life , like professional responsibility when
they are young adults or in the adolescence. We repeat, because it is important,
that almost all the patients present what we called “The Trigger for
Hyperhidrosis Syndrome”; they explain that when they notice they are
going to start sweating, they sweat even more. That causes an anxiety process
which results in an even more intense sweating condition.
That happens because Hyperhidrosis causes psychological alterations that generate
a vicious circle: Hyperhidrosis, of genetic origin, provokes psychological
alterations that provoke more Hyperhidrosis and, consequently, more psychological
alterations. That feeds the vicious circle and causes " The Trigger for
Hyperhidrosis Syndrome" .
The transitory chemical suppression of the sweating with the Botulinum Toxin
makes the patients feel more confident. The patients understand they control
the sweating, re-injecting the toxin when necessary. The patients did not have
this capacity before. In other words, the vicious circle is broken; the trigger
is disarmed with the positive psychological action of the toxin. This positive
psychological action of the toxin is responsible for smaller sweat volumes
observed in many patients after its chemical effects are finished.
The psychological alterations of Hyperhidrosis are consequences and not the
cause of the problem. The suppression of the sweating with Botulinum Toxin
has an immediate chemical effect and a positive psychological late effect,
what results in better quality of life for the patients. “The Trigger
for Hyperhidrosis Syndrome” is the group of psychological reactions resulting
from the Genetic Hyperhidrosis, that causes anxiety and worsens the signs and
As the Botulinum Toxin injection (BOTOX® / Dysport) is a very simple procedure,
it can be performed at the clinic. In our opinion, it is the best alternative
to control most of the cases of Hyperhidrosis.
The Trigger of Hyperhidrosis Syndrome
The “The Trigger of Hyperhidrosis Syndrome ”,
described by Naturale Clinic's doctors is the group
of current psychological reactions of genetic Hyperhidrosis,
that generates anxiety and worsening of the signs and
Hyperhidrosis has a genetics causes. But the presence of the
Hyperhidrosis bothering their sufferers , that end up
generating anxiety a process that feeds the own
hyperhidrosis. We called this situation of "The Trigger
of Hyperhidrosis Syndrome ".
The genetic hyperhidrosis, worsened by the
psychological problems by her generated, end up provoking
a vicious circle that feeds Hyperhidrosis
The Trigger of Hyperhidrosis
Syndrome is broken by toxin botulinum
