Types of operation
Step by step
Before the procedure (both surgical and injection), the doctor will conduct The Minor test (starch-iodine test). During this procedure degreasing of the sweating area is performed with the alcohol. Then the skin is dried and starch is applied. When sweating, the problem area of the skin becomes blue and thus it is determined where the treatment should be carried out. With the injection treatment procedure is possible immediately after consultation.
Since the treatment of the hyperhidrosis is carried out under local anesthesia, then, in addition to consulting a plastic surgeon, there is no need for an additional medical tests.
Choosing the day of operation
If you choose a surgical method for treating sweating, you can choose a convenient day for you during the consultation.
Surgical treatment of hyperhidrosis: the surgeon removes sweat glands in the axillary zone through a puncture of 0.3-0.4 mm using ultrasound equipment. This technique is developed and patented by the doctors of ANA-COSMO. The doctor performs the operation using additive endoscopic video surveillance. This allows the surgeon to control ultrasound as much as possible.
For injection treatment, the drug (Dysport or Botex) is introducted into the axillary zone and palm zone. This procedure is performed by a doctor who passed special training for working with botulinum toxin. The duration of the procedure is up to 60 min.
After the end of the injection treatment, you can immediately be back to your lifestyle. When the duration of the botulinum toxin effect is over, the procedure must be repeated.
In the case of a surgical method of treatment 7 days after the operation, hot bath should be avoided, as well as physical exertion.
There is a surgical method for treating hyperhidrosis - sympathectomy. However, this is an unpredictable operation. That's why it was banned in a number of countries. Doctors of the ANA-COSMO clinic also abandoned it and developed their own unique, safe and more effective method of surgical treatment of hyperhidrosis - "curettage of the sweating zone in the axillary zone".
