What is Hyperhydrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating beyond the normal needs of body temperature control. It is particularly common in the armpits and palms of the hands. The cause is unknown although some medical researchers believe it is related to overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system.
Our medical consultants can advise you on various therapies including:
- Effective Antiperspirants
- Injections under the arms –
(this has excellent results lasting up to 6 months).
How does the injectable treatment work?
Injectable treatments in the underarms block the chemical the body releases to cause a sweat.
How long does the procedure take?
Generally the procedure takes about 15 minutes.
Is it very painful?
Usually only minor discomfort is felt.
