Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating – hyperhidrosis – is a common condition which is estimated to affect between 1 and 3% of the total population.

It can affect any site of the body although the most common locations are the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis), palms of the hands, soles of the feet and the forehead.

Non-surgical treatments for excessive sweating include:

Topical Solutions

There are a number of products that can be applied to the surface of the skin which aim to reduce the production of sweat. As a first step, speaking to your GP or pharmacist should be able to help guide you on the most appropriate product for your circumstances.

Filler Injections

This treatment works by injecting a drug which blocks the production of sweat. It is extremely effective, working for up to 95% of people who try it. The effects take a couple of weeks to develop and typically last between 3 and 9 months, before a repeat treatment is required. We sometimes find an alternative brand called Disport more effective in treating hyperhidrosis and so that is often the product we use for this treatment.

Depending on the site of the excessive sweating, there are a number of surgical procedures that be carried out to destroy the sweat glands or to destroy the nerves supplying the sweat glands.
