Why do we get excessive sweating?
Excessive sweating affects nearly 5% of the global population, and can impact different parts of our body. There are numerous medical causes include hyperthyroidism, obesity, menopause, anxiety and pregnancy, but when no cause has been identified, this is known as primary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis can start in our youth or after puberty, and can significantly impact our lives, particularly profuse armpit sweating. At Your Skin Doctors, many of our patients find great relief in our treatments, which are safe and clinically proven.
How can we treat hyperhidrosis?
At Your Skin Doctors, our medical experts use precise amounts of Botulinum Toxin type A at specific points to temporarily stop local small muscles in our sweat glands from producing sweat from the pores. Our expert doctors are highly experienced in treating hyperhidrosis and always conduct an initial consultation to determine the type of hyperhidrosis you have and learn how sweating is affecting you. After a thorough analysis to understand your requirements, we can begin to plan a personalised treatment tailored to your needs. To find out more, book here for a free consultation.
