For some people, sweating can go into overdrive. This is a medical condition, called Hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis commonly affects the underarms (axilla) or the palms.
Severe underarm sweating, also known as primary axillary hyperhidrosis, is a condition in which the body sweats more than it has to in order to regulate body temperature. Often there is no underlying cause of heavy sweating. In hyperhidrosis the nerves responsible for triggering your sweat glands become overactive and trigger more perspiration even if it's not needed.
With stress or nervousness, the problem becomes even worse.
Here at Complete Skin we can treat Hyperhidrosis of either the palms or the axilla using - Anti-Wrinkle injections. These are a successful way of treating this problem. Unlike injections for lines and wrinkles, injections for excess sweating begin to work within 24hrs.
Treatment can last up to four months and in some cases longer depending on the dose administered.
