Hyperhidrosis is typically an inherited problem that can add pressure and inconvenience to social situations and your work life
While sweating is needed for thermal regulation, some people suffer from sweating that occurs even when the body exceeds its need for physiological thermal regulation - it is thought that hyperhidrosis is a result of the overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system.
Where can people experience excessive sweating?
Hyperhidrosis can occur in the feet, underarms and face. Palmar hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms) is the most common form of hyperhidrosis and causes excessive sweating of the hands.
When you have hyperhidrosis it is common that over-the-counter solutions, such as strong antiperspirants, do not provide enough relief from the symptoms. This can be especially true when it comes to palm sweating as there are limited ways to manage it without proper intervention.
How do we treat excessive sweating?
Fortunately, with the recent advances in medicine, many forms of treatment are available to treat hyperhidrosis. At MBA Skin we offer an effective solution to hyperhidrosis using Botilium toxin (Botox).
Clinically proven to safely and effectively treat excessive sweating, Botox injections selectively block the treated area to prevent your nerves from signalling your sweat glands. The treatment is minimally invasive, requiring several injections to the area being treated, but you will be able to return to your normal day afterwards as there is no downtime.
