Hyperhidrosis - Treatment with the Botulinum Toxin - Efficiency length of the blocking action


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 symptoms.
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 symptoms.

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

The chemical effect and psycological effect of Toxin Botulinum gives a better quality of life

The transitory chemical suppression of the sweating with the Botulinum Toxin makes the patients feel more confident.
