Information sweat treatments
The body’s sweating is controlled by the hypothalamus and the limbic system of the brain. Sweating is necessary to cool the body as well as to get a better grip with hands and feet.
Those who suffer from Hyperhidrosis, have an abnormal sweating-reaction from stress and effort.
Hyperhidrosis Primary, is divided into two groups: general and focal.
With general Hyperhidrosis the patient is sweating from the whole body, but most often from the torso and the head. The debut of this often comes late in life, after 50 years of age, and triggering factors are mainly heat and effort but also stress. In general hyperhidrosis the hypothalamus is involved.
Focal Hyperhidrosis involves sweating from certain places of the body, usually double-sided and symmetric. Common combinations are: feet-hands, axiller-hands-feet and axiller-groin.
Hyperhidrosis can debut already in childhood and then primarily through sweating from hands and feet.
Axillary hyperhidrosis usually appear during adolescence. The trigger is mainly stress, but also in this case, heat and effort can play a role. With this type of hyperhidrosos, the limbic system is involved.
Primary hyperhidrosen is hereditary.
Sweat treatments at Victoriakliniken
Botulinum toxin Typ A (Botox®)
We offer Botox ® treatments for sweating (and we also work very successfully with Botox-treatments for migraine and pain from teeth grinding (bruxism)).
Victoriakliniken was the first clinic in Scandinavia to offer sweat-treatments with a lasting result with miraDry ® for excessive underarm sweat.
miradry ® is a treatment that uses microwave technology, and safely and effectively removes the sweat glands in the armpit and provides permanent results without surgery.

Excessive sweating, or Hyperhidrosis, can be a severe handicap that restricts or inhibits, and thus negatively affect quality of life, especially in social settings and in the workplace.
Many patients experience a great relief after receiving a treatment that actually helps.
