The involuntary action of sweating helps us to cool our body down and stops it from overheating. But there are people who suffer from hyperhidrosis, which means they over-sweat and often sweat when the body doesn’t need cooling.

Many people who have hyperhidrosis suffer excessive sweating from under the arms, the palms of their hands and the soles of their feet. Excessive sweating of the palms can make using a computer or trying to turn a doorknob difficult. Underarm sweating soaks through our clothes and causes unsightly sweat marks.

But help is in hand because our London skin clinic offers a very effective hyperhidrosis treatment in the form of Botox injections. These Botox or neurotoxin injections can be used to treat excessive sweating under the arms, on the palms of the hands and on the soles of the feet. The excessive sweating treatment prevents the release of a chemical that signals the sweat glands to begin working. Most patients need several Botox injections and the results last for around 12 months.
