Sweating is a perfectly normal process that plays an important health role by helping to maintain body temperature. However, there are a few occasions where our body will produce more sweat (excessive sweating) than is necessary, and this is known as ‘hyperhidrosis’. As well as being a practical problem, hyperhidrosis can also be an embarrassing one.
There are a range of solutions for this, depending on its root cause, which our practitioners will be able to take you through. However, a common, non-surgical treatment for hyperhidrosis is to inject the area with Botox. This treatment is so effective; it can reduce excessive sweating by up to 80%.
