Hyperhidrosis is a common condition in which a person sweats excessively in certain areas of the body.
There are no guidelines to determine what "normal" sweating is, but if you feel you sweat too much and your sweating has started to interfere with your everyday daily life, you may have hyperhidrosis, then FACEmed's clinic in Essex has a treatment for your condition.
People with excessive sweating suffer from the condition known as severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis which affects one in twenty people worldwide. Some people are so embarrassed by this condition that they never seek help. FACEmed is a specialist clinic in Essex and our specialists can help you.
Excessive sweating can be challenging to treat and it may take a while to find a treatment right for you. Changing your lifestyle cannot cure primary hyperhidrosis (hyperhidrosis with no obvious cause), but it can improve your symptoms and help your confidence.
For example, you may have hyperhidrosis if:
Botulinum toxin can be injected into the skin in areas of the body affected by hyperhidrosis. This helps reduce sweating in these areas by blocking the signals from the brain to the sweat glands.
Around 15-20 injections are given in the affected areas of the body, such as the armpits, hands, feet or face.
The procedure usually takes about 30-45 minutes in total.
The effect of the injections usually lasts for several months, after which time the treatment can be repeated if necessary.
Since it is applied locally there are no widespread side effects. It works for almost every one. Each twenty minute injection session can stop sweating for approximately six month so, most people can get satisfactory relief with one or two Botox® sessions each year. For most people, this therapy is a delightful change, liberating them from daily worries of sweating in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Most of these side effects are short-lived or will resolve as the effect of the injections wears off.
In a few cases where hyperhidrosis is particularly severe and treatment hasn't been successful, surgery may be recommended.
