Excessive Sweating Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Excessive sweating – known as severe axillary hyperhidrosis – is a permanent condition that causes discomfort and distress to men and to women.

What causes excessive sweating?

It is completely normal to sweat when you exercise, or if it is too hot. It is the natural way for your body to cool you down. But if you are sweating excessively, then it can cause a lot of discomfort and can affect your overall sense of wellbeing. While there is often no obvious cause, it is frequently associated genetics (primary hyperhidrosis), or with underlying medical conditions like fevers (secondary hyperhidrosis). It can also be a side effect of the menopause or when patients take certain medications like beta-blockers.

What causes excessive sweating of the head and face?

If you are sweating excessively from the head and face, then you may have a condition called craniofacial hyperhidrosis. This condition can leave patients with damp and dripping faces even when they are stationary or not exercising.

How to stop excessive sweating

Due to the embarrassing nature of the condition, some people may want to opt for extreme measures like choosing plastic surgery to remove sweat glands. This has become a popular procedure for people who want to minimise excessive sweating in their hands, feet and armpits for example, or profuse sweating all over the body. However, there is a non-surgical treatment that prevents heavy sweating from interfering with work or daily life. Read more about this condition on our “How To Treat Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)” Q&A blog.

Botulinum Toxin Injections for Excessive Sweating

At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we offer a quick and effective treatment to minimise the process of heavy sweating with a simple injection. Hyperhidrosis can be treated with injections of botulinum toxin: an FDA-approved medicine that is a muscle relaxant used by doctors in the UK for years to help patients suffering from excessive sweating.

At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we only use wrinkle injections to target excessive sweating in the armpits. Due to the downtime, discomfort and potential side effects that can be brought on, we do not offer treatment for excessive sweating of the hands and feet.  This clinically proven procedure works wonders at stopping excessive sweating in its tracks, giving patients dramatic and life-changing results without any pain or surgical recovery time.
