Hyperhidrosis treatment Tunisia:Cheap price hyper-sweating treatment
The term hyperhidrosis indicates an excessive secretion of sweat compared to the norm in the palmar (hands), plantar (feet) and axillary (underarm) areas. Sweating is a physiological phenomenon, especially during the summer months. Under normal conditions, our body produces about half a litre of sweat per day.

Course of treatment for hyperhidrosisThe treatment of hyperhidrosis can be achieved by several different therapeutic approaches. The main ones are: iontophoresis, drug treatment, surgery and treatment of hyperhidrosis with botulinum toxin.
Iontophoresis is a technique that involves passing a low-intensity current through the skin of the body part affected by hyperhidrosis. It is a non-invasive method used for people who have not been able to obtain a satisfactory result with antiperspirants. The current causes a microscopic thickening of the surface layer that blocks the ducts of the sweat glands and interfere with the sensitivity of the receptors that react to the gland's nerve stimuli. The treatment is carried out with the hands and/or feet immersed in basins partially filled with water and connected by electrodes to the generator. For the armpits, special electrodes are inserted into special, well-wetted absorbent sponge bags. The treatment takes between 20 and 30 minutes. In the treatment of hyperhidrosis, doctors may resort to surgery. The procedure involves the removal of the sweat glands in the armpits. This is an operation to treat underarm hyperhidrosis. If the sweating extends beyond the hairline, a more extensive operation is required, requiring multiple incisions, which in some cases may result in hypertrophic scars. The destruction, denervation and/or removal of sweat glands from the axillary cavity can also be achieved by a technique similar to liposuction, preferably combined with curettage. The procedure can be performed under local anaesthesia. Finally, botulinum toxin is the therapy of choice for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. Botulinum toxin is able to block the secretion of sweat by the sweat gland. This effect is due to the inhibition of the release of a neurotransmitter from nerve endings, which stops the nerve impulse responsible for the stimulation of the sweat gland. It is only after several months that the nerve endings regain the ability to release the neurotransmitter again with a gradual resumption of sweating. The treatment consists of multiple subcutaneous injections of small amounts of the toxin in order to evenly cover the surface affected by excessive sweating.
