What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. Although primarily a physical burden, hyperhidrosis can deteriorate quality of life from a psychological, emotional, and social perspective. It has been called by some ‘the silent handicap’.
We are pleased to offer treatment of Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
When injected into the sweat glands, the treatment blocks neural controls which cause the body to produce sweat. The effects can last from 3-9 months depending on the site of injections.
How does the treatment work?
The treatment works by blocking the chemical at the end of the nerves so that it cannot work on the glands or muscles. In the case of the sweat glands, it turns then off to reduce sweating.
How long will the effects of the treatment last?
