Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition where there is abnormal and excessive sweating/perspiration taking place in an individual. People with this condition produce large volumes of sweat which means that hands, feet, armpits or chest may be constantly damp. This can make normal activities difficult to carry out and can cause embarrassment in everyday life.

The best treatment for hyperhidrosis is injections of Botulinum Toxin A. Also used in the prevention of wrinkles. This can be used for treating excessive sweating of the underarms but can also be used on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet.

The treatment includes small superficial doses into the skin on the area affected. It blocks the actions of the nerve that supply the glands producing sweat, this prevents the glands from producing sweat. This treatment lasts between 9 – 19 months but will wear off.

More than 1% of all people suffer from excessive sweating and it can affect the hands, feet and face. This condition can be socially debilitating and could even cause social withdrawal and depression. A relatively simple and painless procedure, Botulinum Toxin Injection treatments can provide long lasting (12 months) relief. This treatment is very safe and does not cause any long-term side effects. At Dr Heyns, this treatment can take between 30 and 45 minutes with no down time.
