Excessive underarm sweating
If you suffer from excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis as it is medically known, you can have it successfully treated by injection of a specific protein into the sweat glands to temporarily block its function. This has been used as a standard treatment for the condition for many years. According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, 5% of the World’s population (365 Million people) suffer from this condition so you are not alone.
The commonest area for excessive sweating is the underarm area although some individuals experience excessive sweating in the palms of hands, the soles of feet and the face. The cause is often unknown.
If you suffer from this condition, please make an appointment for a consultation to discuss your concerns, assess suitability and consider treatment options.
