WELDING GLANDS TREATMENT IN THE DENTAL PRAXIS IN BERLIN

Severe, excessive sweating of the armpits (Hyperhidrosis axillaris) can be treated very well in two ways:

* With botulinum toxin, the sweat gland secretion can be stopped highly effectively for a few months by injections into the axillary sweat gland fields.

* For a permanent, long-term reduction of sweating, surgical sweat gland retage is recommended.

The procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and, if desired, in twilight sleep anesthesia (analgosedation).
