Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can cause serious social problems and suffering for those affected by this very treatable condition. For those who are affected by excess sweat it can mean the need to change shirts every few hours. Botox is very safe and effective as a treatment for excessive sweating (also called botox hyperhidrosis sweat treatment).
Excessive sweat affects many people. An estimated 2-3% of the population suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start in late adolescence, while palm and sole sweating often begins earlier, around the average age of 13. If a person doesn’t undergo a form of sweat treatment then these problems can continue throughout life.
In severe cases excess sweating can have serious practical consequences as well, making it difficult for people to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands. These are amongst the reasons why hundreds of people in the UK undertake a hyperhydrosis sweat treatment each year, with only underarm sweat treatment.
What is the cause of hyperhidrosis and why would I need a sweat treatment?
Although neurologic, metabolic, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause excessive sweating, most cases of hyperhidrosis occur in people who are otherwise healthy.
Sufferers may sweat more at certain times of the day or after having alcohol, coffee, tea, hot or spicy food, or maybe when they are more stressed or anxious. Some people find that heat or emotions trigger their hyperhydrosis, whereas others sweat excessively regardless of what they eat or drink, their mood or their environment. Do you find yourself changing your clothes too often and avoiding wearing light colours? If you suffer from excessive sweating and feel that your quality of life is being affected then a hyperhidrosis sweat treatment may well help you.
