Excessive sweating is a common condition that can affect both men and women.
It is most frequently seen in the armpits, but can also occur on the hands and feet. Also known as Hyperhidrosis, this concern is the result of overactive sweat glands and can often be associated with adolescence, stress and anxiety, polycystic ovaries and overactive thyroid glands.
Sweating occurs as a natural response to particular circumstances, including physical activity and exercise, warm weather conditions and feelings of nervousness, stress and anger. However, when affected by Hyperhidrosis you will sweat more than is usually expected and the noticeable wet patches on your clothing can cause feelings of embarrassment, impacting on daily life – work and relationships.
It is not uncommon for excessive sweating to begin in childhood, and the sweating can occur all over the body or in localised areas. There may be an underlying cause for your Hyperhidrosis, or it may happen for no apparent reason at all, a Doctor will be able to investigate this for you.
At Ambra Aesthetic Clinic, excessive sweating is treated with Botulinum Toxin. This injectable treatment, also known as BOTOX, is administered to the area of concern and acts to block the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. This in turn will reduce the amount of sebum that is secreted by the gland, thus producing less sweat.
Repeating the procedure more than once may be required, before the results become effective, when you can restore any social confidence that may have been lost.Book a Consultation
