Unwanted sweating

Known as Hyperhydrosis this can significantly undermine people's self confidence especially in company both socially and in the work place. People often only wear dark clothes or always wear two layers. Wearing two layers can excacerbate the problem by making them too hot and causing more sweating.

Hyperhydrosis can be very localised to particular areas such as the axillas the back, hands or groins. It affects both men and women and in my experience often affects peoples relationships.

Help is possible:

Botulinum Toxin can be injected beneath the skin to give temporary control. This can be good but needs repeating. Botulinum Toxin Injections

Miradry, uses radiofrequency energy to ablate the swaet glands. Done under local aneasthetic this can be permanent and is non invasive. It is less invasive than its laser equivalent with fewer side effects and complications. Miradry

Retrodermal curretage. This is a surgical procedure where I remove the sweat glands in a similar procedure to liposuction. It is minimally invasive and usually curative and probably permanent. Recovery takes approximately two weeks.

Sympathectomy. A surgical procedure which I rarely recommend given its side effects.
