L’hyperhidrose, considérée comme un handicap, concerne près de 2,8 % de la population. Elle est liée à une production excessive de sueur permanente et symétrique, correspondant à une hyperactivité des glandes sudorales, indépendante du processus de la thermorégulation.

Le traitement par la TB a complètement changé la prise en charge des patients atteints d’hyperhidrose axillaire. C’est un traitement simple, précis, rapide, efficace qui améliore la qualité de vie du patient aussi bien dans l’hyperhidrose vraie que celle de confort. Les hyperhydroses palmo-plantaires peuvent aussi être traitées par la TB, mais nécessitent des techniques anesthésiques tronculaires qui réservent cet acte aux centres hospitaliers.
