The causes of excessive sweating

On a daily basis, the sweat glands produce sweat to regulate the body’s temperature to 37°. This is a classic sweating mechanism.

In the case of hyperhidrosis, the body conditions itself in excessive sweating to regain its usual temperature. The sweat glands then produce a large amount of sweat and the body sweats a lot.

Primary hyperhidrosis can follow a stressful situation and intense emotions. Dietary habits and the consumption of caffeine, alcohol or spicy food also modify the correct body temperature. Extreme heat and intense physical exercise are also responsible.

Advanced, so-called excessive sweating can be explained by many factors:

  • genetic predisposition
  • Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy or menopause
  • Taking medications, such as antidepressants
  • Certain illnesses , such as hyperthyroidism, Parkinson’s disease, HIV/AIDS
  • A situation of overweight

Living with hyperhidrosis on a daily basis

Excessive sweating is restrictive and difficult to live with. It is perceived as a real handicap by the patients concerned.

It limits the affected person’s daily activities and social interactions . People feel embarrassed and prefer to isolate themselves , affecting their self-esteem and quality of life.

Hyperhidrosis also causes stress and anxiety, especially in social or work situations, where excessive sweating can be visible and embarrassing.

Itching, irritation and skin infections accompany patients who suffer from this condition.

The interest of Botox to fight against excessive sweating

BotoxⓇ is the ideal alternative to combat excessive sweating.

It is injected directly on the areas to be treated, either the armpits or hands. The product temporarily blocks the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that activates the sweat glands, thereby reducing sweat production.
