Treatments


There are two efficient treatments for Hyperhidrosis: the Botulinum Toxin and Sympathectomy.
Sympathectomy is a kind of surgery that has been used for a very long time, performed with an old technique, through a cut above the clavicle, or with a modern technique, through a small incision in the thorax and with the aid of video equipment. It is a very efficient technique, but SYMPATHECTOMY HAS COMPLICATIONS. These complications, although rare, are real, making the choice of that kind of treatment a very serious decision for both the doctor and the patient.


A new, modern and free of risk technique, the Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX® / Dysport), was added to the treatment of Hyperhidrosis. The injection of the Botulinum Toxin in the hand, in the armpit or in other parts of the body eliminates the sweating completely. The procedure is performed without the need of hospitalization. It can be carried out in a medical clinic and the patient can return to his normal activities on the same day. The treatment with the Botulinum Toxin is not definitive, but other injection applications can be made every 6/12 months, depending on the case. This procedure keeps the area being treated free of sweating.


The advantage of the Sympathectomy is that it is definitive. The disadvantage is that it is a surgery and complications can result from it. Some of them may be irreversible .
The advantage of the Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX® / Dysport) is that it does not present any risk and it is not a surgery. Its disadvantage is that it is not definitive. Therefore, the two techniques exist exactly because they are different.
Considering the absence of risks or complications and due to the fact that porocedure is quite simple, we prefer using the Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX® / Dysport) to Sympathectomy in our Clinic. The Botulinum Toxin has undeniable advantages to the surgical techniques. It can be applied in the hands and armpits, in the front area of the face, in areas of the neck and in small areas of the thorax, with risks that are practically inexistent. Naturale Clinic’s Medical group presented the first scientific work in Brazil, the fourth in the world, regarding the Botulinum Toxin and Hyperhidrosis.


In the past, other treatments were tried, but they did not show efficiency: The ointments and salves use, the psychological treatments, the medicines, the iontoforesis, the surgery to remove the glands were used with very limited efficiency.
