Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, 02/27/2012
Gulec AT – Botulinum toxin A diluted in lidocaine causes significantly less pain than Botulinum toxin A (BTX–A) diluted in saline, whereas it is is equally effective and safe as the latter one in treating axillary hyperhidrosis. Therefore, the authors suggest that lidocaine–diluted BTX–A may be a better treatment option for the patients with primary axillary hyperhidrosis.
