Facial sweating otherwise known as Hyperhidrosis is a common condition causing individuals to sweat excessively, much more than the body needs in order to regulate its temperature. Facial sweating is often uncontrollable and can cause social embarrassment, severely affecting confidence and quality of life.
The sweating can often happen without warning or reason. This can cause anxiety which leads to a vicious cycle, as the anxiety of getting sweaty, often leads to increased sweat production.
Many people with the condition are too embarrassed to seek medical help or believe that nothing can be done to improve their symptoms. However, there is help available.
The most common areas of concern are:
- Top lip & chin
- Sides of nose
Hyperhidrsis can be treated by injecting Botox into the sweat glands around the nerve endings, inhibiting the sweat gland, so less sweat is produced. We commonly treat the forehead, top lip, under arm area as well as palms and the soles of the feet and achieve results that last between 6 to 12 months.
