What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which an individual sweats excessively and often without reason. Sweating is the body’s natural reaction to keeping cool, however individuals with this medical condition will sweat even when the body is cool or at rest. Often times the excessive sweating is not triggered by anything. The individual that suffers with hyperhidrosis has very active sweat glands that can effect the hands, armpits and the feet. This is known as primary or focal hyperhidrosis. Sweating due to primary hyperhidrosis is divided into four categories: Axillary (underarm or armpit sweating), Palmar (hands and palms), Plantar (feet), and Truncal (trunk or upper body). If excessive sweating occurs due to a medical condition, this is referred to as secondary hyperhidrosis. Medical conditions that can cause secondary hyperhidrosis include anxiety, cancer, heart and lung disease, stroke, spinal cord injuries and others. Men are effected more than woman, and it generally runs in families. Causes of hyperhidrosis include certain medications, metabolic disorder, abnormally large sweat glands, or a lesion that affects any portion of the sympathetic lymph nodes. Spicy foods, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and excessive alcohol may also cause hyperhidrosis, which can start at any age in any individual.
Hyperhidrosis can be treated with a simple injection (regulatory requirements prevent the advertising of injectable brand names. To find out further information we are more than happy to discuss the differences in brand, dosage and pricing during a complimentary consultation). These anti-sweat injections will create a barrier for the sweat glands and signal to the brain that it does not need to sweat excessively. Sweat will not be produced in the areas that have been treated with the anti-sweat injections.

An individual may wish to have Anti-Sweat Injections to treat hyperhidrosis if excessive sweating is out of control.
