Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating, beyond what is necessary to smoothly regulate body temperature. It may be generalised or localised to specific body parts, such as the hands, legs, face and armpits, which is the most common spot on the body.
The causes of primary hyperhidrosis are rather unknown, although some doctors claim it is caused by overactive sympathetic nervous system while stress can aggravate the condition of some patients. Other factors that can play a role include some foods and drinks, nicotine, caffeine as well as various scents.

Traditional anti-hyperhidrosis treatments usually involve creams containing aluminum chloride, as well as the use of aluminum salts and various homeopathic substances. These methods, although they can slightly improve the situation, have temporary effects and need constant repetition.
At Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab, we suggest the most modern and painless methods for treating hyperhidrosis, a problem that can deteriorate the mood of the patient.
Hyperhidrosis: Laser Treatment
At Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab we make use of one of the most modern and sophisticated methods against hyperhidrosis, ND-YAG laser, which emits a focused beam of light, 1064 nm wavelength. ND-YAG has the capacity to directly target the sweat glands without affecting other skin structures or damaging blood vessels or nerves. 
The technique is very simple and it is done with local sedation. It does not require any hospitalisation or recovery time, only a small restriction of some activities for 2 to 3 days.

For this reason, ND-YAG laser is considered ideal for those suffering from axillary hyperhidrosis, and for cases of hyperhidrosis in the legs or hands, botox treatment is recommended because the skin in these areas is thicker.

Axillary Hyperhidrosis: Laser Treatment
In Greece, at least 100,000 people suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis, most of whom are affected socially and psychologically.
ND-YAG laser is the ideal method for treating hyperhidrosis in both men and women with a success rate of 90%. The method is applied after mapping of the area and local anesthesia. Sometimes it may take two sessions to dramatically reduce axillary hyperhidrosis.
The whole procedure takes place at Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab and takes about 45 minutes. Then the patient can return to everyday life and activities unhindered.

Hyperhidrosis: Botox Treatment
In recent years, Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab has added botox among treatments. In addition to many applications in other areas, botox also helps in hyperhidrosis. Botox is generally a drug that stops the nervous stimulus. In this particular application against hyperhidrosis, botox stops the nervous stimulus that reaches up to the sweat glands and gives them the command to produce sweat. It should be noted that botox application in such conditions prevents excessive sweating rather than normal sweat production.

Why Should I Proceed with Botox Treatment?
Botox treatment against hyperhidrosis is the ideal treatment for areas such as the armpits, legs and arms where the first signs of hyperhidrosis appear. It is also very effective against facial hyperhidrosis, where most combine it with wrinkle treatment, which is also the main reason why botox is used, Botulinum toxin type A.

How Long Does Botox Treatment Take?
Treating hyperhidrosis through the use of botox in areas such as the palms, armpits, forehead, feet, etc. is a process considered safe and with very satisfactory results. We notice the phenomenon that many people start mistrusting the first application of the botox, not believing that the problem they have been dealing with for so many years can be corrected. After the first application, these individuals become the most cordial supporters of this treatment. Especially those who have experienced a great deal of therapies are surprised to see that with such a short process they have managed to solve the problem that has troubled them in their whole life.
The effects of the treatment are usually apparent within a week and last for about six months, so treatment should be resumed as new nerve endings begin to develop as a replacement for the old ones. The side effects are minimal and recede immediately, except for the possible local weakness of certain muscles, which, if occuring, subsides within about two weeks.
