Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterised by excessive sweating, usually in areas where there is a high concentration of sweat glands such as the hands, feet, armpits and the groin area. Excessive sweating can even occur when temperatures are cooler or at rest. It is estimated that 2 - 3% of the population suffers from hyperhidrosis, with less than 40% of those affected seeking medical advice. Excess sweating is a common problem that can be solved easily, leaving you with dry, soft skin regardless of the heat.
At the Skincodes Clinic our preferred treatment method is to avoid invasive surgery and to treat the affected areas with Botox® as we believe these to be the most effective and safe.
The administration of Botox® to the overactive sweat glands. The protein acts by blocking excess nerve signals to the sweat glands, thus reducing the amount of sweat the body releases. With Botox® you will notice a significant reduction in sweating, which can last for a period of 3 –6 months, after which many patients return for further treatment.
