> See Botox





An excess of localized perspiration including the axilla (armpits) can be socially very embarrassing. Botulinum toxin, injected very superficially, blocks the release of acetyl-choline vesicles in the muscle cells of the excretory ducts of eccrine glands. This treatment can modulate or even block perspiration secretion.

Regions concerned

Treatment gives results with a satisfaction rate of nearly 85% for palmar and axillary regions. (armpit and hands).
The technique,already used for many years is totally safe. It can advantageously replace all other means often implemented by patients with chronic hyperhidrosis:

  • Deodorants
  • antiperspirant with aluminum saltbase
  • Iontophoresis
  • Anti-perspirants central atropine
  • Surgical methods (thoracic or lumbar sympathectomy)


Axillary hyperhidrosis

One vial of botulinum toxin (Vistabel, or Bocouture, Azalure) per axilla is necessary to obtain an excellent result. This product is injected very superficially into 15 to 20 points per axilla. This injection is painless and totally safe.
It is recommended to carry out a Minor’s test (iodine and starchsolution) to define with certainty, the areas of hypersecretion therefore the area needing treatment.


Outcome and duration

Results are excellent and usually last between six and nine months. It is advisable to perform the injections at the end of winter, for protection during the spring, summer and autumn.
