Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is a medical condition.
Sweating is the body’s normal response to cool itself. However for some people the sweating is excessive and is more than required for the body to regulate temperature.
The cause of hyperhidrosis is largely unknown. However, we do know anxiety or excitement can play a part in worsening the condition as can certain foods and smells.
Excessive sweating can occur on parts of the body including the palms, soles of the feet, underarms and scalp.
Hyperhidrosis can cause embarrassment and can effect quality of life.
How is hyperhidrosis treated?
There are several options to treat this, however at ASFB we prefer a non- surgical approach and choose to use anti -wrinkle injections.
Larger doses than that used for wrinkle treatment are required. This procedure is often an effective treatment for sweaty palms, underarms etc, often lasting up to 9 months at a time. Check with us if you are eligible for Medicare rebates.
New treatments are available all the time. It’s best to see a skin care professional to ensure you are receiving the best and latest treatment for your condition.
