Hyperhidrosis is the medical name for excessive sweating.
It’s a condition that may affect as many as three per cent of people, men and women, and can be embarrassing and debilitating and can have a serious impact not just on self-confidence but daily life, job opportunities and relationships.
The most common areas for hyperhidrosis are the armpits, face, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Excessive sweating can, though, occur in other parts of the body.
Hyperhidrosis is caused by over-activity in the sweat glands. These glands are triggered by the body’s normal response for regulating temperature – in a warm environment or after exercise, for example..
However, other factors may also be triggers, such as anxiety, physical or emotional stress, alcohol and hot or spicy food.
You may be able to avoid some of these factors. But if excessive sweating is affecting your life and your confidence, please talk to us here at KL Advanced Medical Cosmetics.
We can you offer a simple, effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, to help keep the condition under control.
Hyperhidrosis treatment at KL Cosmetic Clinics Doncaster
The treatment we offer for hyperhidrosis is using injections of Botulinum Toxin Type A (commonly known as Botox – also used in wrinkle-relaxing treatments).
Botox™ has been used to treat excessive sweating for many years. The injections temporarily inhibit the over-active sweat glands. This helps to stop the sweating completely, in some cases, or at the very least to significantly reduce it.
As with other injection treatments it may feel a little uncomfortable, but most of our clients find it relatively pain-free. We will explain the procedure to you in more detail, during your consultation for the treatment.
To maintain the results, we recommend you have the treatment once every 4 to 6 months.
