What is hyperhydrosis and how do we treat it?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition which present as excessive sweating - even without vigorous activity and so can leave people feeling uncomfortable and embarrassed. This condition is often localised to the under arm however it can be generalised to the whole body including the hands and scalp. The general cause is unknown, however it is thought to be exacerbated by anxiety.
At Klnik we have just the treatment to aid with your condition. For hyperhydrosis localised to the underarm, we can provide a treatment called Miradry. This works by destroying the sweat glands in this area therfefore reducing perspiration in this area.
Botulinum toxin can also be used to reduce sweating - this works by blocking the signalling between receptors and sweat glands. However, this gives temporary results in comparison to Miradry treatment.
