Excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, is a common problem, affecting at least 1-3% of the population. Excessive sweating can happen without a known cause (primary hyperhidrosis). This type of sweating often starts around childhood, or during early teenage years. Commonly, excessive sweating affects places where sweat glands are most concentrated such as the palms, soles and armpits (localised). In some individuals, the problem can be more widespread (generalised).
The most common causes for excess sweating can be environmental, medical or even emotional. For example:
Small doses of Botox will be injected under the skin in areas that produce the most sweat, such as in the armpits and palms of the hands, will prevent the sweat glands from producing excessive amounts of sweat. The risks are minimal and the down time is non existent, but please be assured that within a few days of having treatment, the symptoms of your condition will be vastly improved, giving you a huge boost to your confidence.
