Excessive Sweating is quite a common but embarrassing condition that affects many people in the UK. This can be treated effectively by using Botox (Botulinum Toxic Type A). Prior to having this procedure we will explain in full what can be achieved, but usually this is done using a series of injections made with a fine needle into the armpit area.
Hyperhidrosis treatment can take around 30 minutes and excess sweating will be stopped for around 4 to 6 months. Don’t worry about us being able to block the sweat from one or two small areas of the body – you have plenty of sweat glands to handle the job.
What is hyperhidrosis and why does it happen?
Hyperhidrosis is quite common and it affects a lot of people from all walks of life. It is a condition that can affect different parts of the body including armpits, face, feet, hands, groin and the chest.
When the body heats up or you get hot, it is normal to sweat, but hyperhidrosis occurs when sweating is excessive and when the body doesn’t need to cool down.
Unfortunately hyperhidrosis is not a short term condition and it can happen suddenly out of the blue. It can be caused perhaps by side effects of medications, or by a different health condition you might already have.
For those men and women that suffer with this terrible burden of hyperhidrosis, it can greatly affect the quality of a person’s life in many ways and not just socially.
