The good news is that most cases of excessive sweating – known as hyperhidrosis – are harmless. However, some can be a sign of other more complicated medical conditions, such as diabetes or thyroid problems. Your doctor will be able to help you to find out more.
Sometimes it’s just a case of being out of shape or overweight?
If you’re embarassed to remove your jacket during a business meeting or leave the gym equipment wet, you may just sweat more than others but did you know there is a treatment to help?
We use anti-wrinkle injections to treat hyperhidrosis of the armpits, although this treatment can also be used on other areas of the body to relieve sweating. Anti-wrinkle injections have been used medically for several decades to alleviate muscle conditions affecting our body, although they are more commonly known as a wrinkle smoothing & muscle relaxant in non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
Small doses of anti-wrinkle injection are injected into the skin sending a message to the brain to block the nerves and prevent the glands from producing sweat. It is highly effective although only temporary and may need to be repeated every 3-6 months.
