Excessive Sweating & Hyperhidrosis - Treatment In Calgary
If you suffer from excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, you’re not alone. It’s one of the most common problems, affecting millions of other people.
The appearance of sweating
It can show up in your underarms—no matter how much antiperspirant or deodorant you use—as wetness or staining on your clothing. Some people suffer from excessively wet palms or feet, or it appears on your brow or scalp.
The problem with sweating
Overactive sweat glands can result in wetness (sometimes severe sweating on the face and head area, and underarms) and can produce odour. It can cause embarrassment and affect your self-confidence, resulting in withdrawal from the activities you normally pursue.
Some people resort to a permanent solution—surgical sweat gland removal. In other cases, over-the-counter, therapeutic antiperspirants can also help on a daily basis to manage excessive sweating.
At Body By Q, we can treat hyperhidrosis with botox injections. The botox is injected into the underarms. The botox interrupts signals from the nerves that cause glands to produce sweat which reduces perspiration.
