Although it is normal to sweat, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is a condition that affects 220 million people worldwide. It’s embarrassing as it causes unwanted wetness and unpleasant odours, but it is also very easily treated. The most commonly affected area is the underarms. However, excessive sweating may be also present in many parts of the your body, including hands, feet, face and head. Sweating is generally harmless and happens to both men and women.

What Is Hyperhidrosis / Excessive Sweating?

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:

  • Sudden changes in body temperature
  • Stress
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Menopause
  • Alcoholism
  • Obesity
  • Medication side effects
  • Infectious diseases

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.

Treatment Options

Commonly known as Botox, will block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Retreatment is typically needed in four to six months, as the nerves regenerate. Over time, however, clients can go longer between treatments.
