What is excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)?
Excessive sweating is medically termed as hyperhidrosis and can affect the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) and the palms and soles (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). It’s a common problem which can cause embarrassment through staining clothes and significant social and psychological issues, such as poor self-esteem and social avoidance.
When our body loses heat, we sweat naturally to regulate our core temperature and therefore sweat more when it’s humid or warm. Because our sweat glands are concentrated in certain places, such as the armpits, sweating is more pronounced in these areas. Botulinum Toxin A injections are a safe, effective treatment to help reduce the problem of excessive sweating, especially for sweaty armpits, and are available at the Urban Aesthetix Clinic.
