Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

Sweating is one of the most important and natural ways in which the body cools down and regulates temperature – we all do it. However, if you experience regular excessive sweating, which is more than normal for the environment, then you may suffer from hyperhidrosis.
 
Hyperhidrosis is a physiological problem that has nothing to do with cleanliness. It is not known why some people are affected and others are not. However, studies show that 1/3 to 1/2 of people with hyperhidrosis have a relative with a similar problem, suggesting that there may be a genetic cause.
 
Excessive sweating can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, making you feel self-conscious in work and social situations. The good news is that we can help reduce the problem with Botox® treatments.
