Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, usually begins in either childhood or adolescence. Sweating is one of the most important ways for the body to lose heat; however, people with hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their temperature.

Hyperhidrosis is caused by overactivity of one type of sweat gland, the eccrine gland. Sufferers find they sweat profusely from their armpits, hands or feet.

Fortunately, excessive sweating can quickly and effectively be resolved through hyperhidrosis treatment. This treatment works by administering an injectable protein called Botulinum Toxic, more commonly known by the world’s leading brand Botox™.

During the hyperhidrosis treatment, an extremely fine needle is used to inject small amounts of the toxin into the affected area in approximately 10 to 15 places. As the needle is so fine and the volume of toxin injected is very little, most people experience only very mild discomfort. Botox™blocks the nerve signals responsible for sweating, providing welcome relief for hyperhidrosis sufferers.

Hyperhidrosis treatment can last up to seven months with trials showing that sweat production may be reduced by up to 83% within the first week.
