Condition

Hyperhidrosis

The condition known as hyperhidrosis is commonly known as excessive sweating. Stress, anxiety and feeling nervous can trigger this concern that can occur on the hands, feet, under the arms or all over the body. Overactive sweat glands are most likely to cause hyperhidrosis, leading to embarrassment when visible damp patches can appear on clothing. We all naturally sweat as a method of cooling the body, such as when exercising or when in hot weather. Hyperhidrosis, however, does not need the body to feel warm in order to trigger.

Primary focal hyperhidrosis is the most common form of excessive sweating and is most likely to affect the hands, feet and under the arms. In ordinary circumstances the nerves will send a message to the sweat glands when the body requires them to. However, in the case of primary focal hyperhidrosis the nerves become overactive and send the messages even though they are not needed.
When excessive sweating affects the entire body this is called secondary hyperhidrosis and it is likely that an underlying medical condition is the cause, including: diabetes, thyroid problems, menopause, infections and low blood sugar.
At Light Touch Clinic, we understand that hyperhidrosis is a condition that can cause a great deal of embarrassment, leading people to take drastic measures to conceal the issue. These can include over the counter medical antiperspirants that cause rashes and soreness, disrupting the skin leading to discomfort in the affected area. It can also mean that you may lack confidence in wearing the clothes that truly reflect your style, sticking with black or dark clothing to hide the dampness that is more apparent in lighter clothing.

At Light Touch Clinic, Hyperhidrosis can easily be addressed through the application of wrinkle relaxing injections. Also known as BOTOX, this injectable treatment works to relax the muscles in the chosen area and stop the nerves from sending the messages that stimulate the sweat glands.
