What is Hyperhidrosis?

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is a common problem affecting two to three percent of the Australian population. This condition sees a person produce more sweat than needed, and is either generalised or localised to specific parts of the body such as the hands, feet, armpits, face or the body overall.

Those who suffer from hyperhidrosis can find the condition embarrassing, negatively impacting on daily activities, work and social life, emotional well-being, and relationships. There are general measures a person can take to lessen the effect of hyperhidrosis, such as wearing garments designed to absorb sweat and reduce odour or using antiperspirants, but most frequently fail to improve the condition.

Treatment for excessive sweating

A specialised injection has now been approved to treat hyperhidrosis, and has been found to be both safe and effective. At Verve Cosmetic Clinic, we use Botulinum Toxin Type A, better known as ‘Botox’. This is injected into the skin to prevent symptoms of extreme sweating, providing temporary relief for 6-12 months.
