Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition described as: sweating beyond what is necessary to cool the body. The most common areas affected are the hands, feet, groin, face and underarms.
Hyperhidrosis can have a serious impact on self-confidence, personal relationships and even career success. But today’s treatments offer hope. Innovative non-surgical approaches allow you to specifically treat the affected area painlessly and easily.
There are two types of hyperhidrosis
- Focal Hyperhidrosis or Primary Hyperhidrosis affects local areas such as the underarms, palms, feet and face. It is caused by a malfunction within the sympathetic nervous system that causes an over-stimulation of the nerve to release a chemical called acetylcholine which over-activates the eccrine gland (sweat gland) to produce more sweat. This is where Botox injections can help.
- Generalized Hyperhidrosis or Secondary Hyperhidrosis usually affects the entire body. It is caused by other conditions such as menopause, metabolic disorders, neurological disorders, infections, etc. The use of Botox injections for Generalized or Secondary Hyperhidrosis is not practical or effective.
