Everyone sweats to some extent. This is an important process to help the body to control its temperature and hydrate the skin. Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating far beyond what the body needs to regulate body temperature. For people suffering with excessive sweating, it causes problems with needing to wash more frequently and changing clothes, sometimes several times a day. It can occur on any part of your body but most often is found under your arms, on the palms of hands, soles of feet, forehead and upper lip and trunk of the body. This can have a serious effect on your working and social life. Hyperhidrosis tends to start in adolescence or childhood and it is most common in the armpits, groin, palms and soles of the feet.
If you are considering a sweat treatment to reduce the amount you sweat we can help. At everything skin we offer two treatments for excessive sweating, which if you are suffering can be life changing.

BOTOX TREATMENT FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING (HYPERHIDROSIS)
Botulinum toxin injections (Botox) is the recommended treatment for local hyperhidrosis such as the armpits, and by far the most effective, lasting 6-7 months on average. The Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic offers Botox® treatment for excessive sweating. This long-lasting treatment only takes around 30 minutes, and simply involves the Botox® being injected into the skin using very tiny needles.
Botox®, when injected into the skin in small doses, blocks the nerves that supply the eccrine glands which will reduce the activity of the sweat glands to minimise sweating. This is a treatment that needs to be repeated at regular intervals and during your consultation, the duration and frequency of treatment will be discussed with you.
