Excessive sweating is a condition known as Hyperhidrosis. It is which the body sweats more than it needs to in order to achieve an optimal body temperature. It affects roughly 900,000 people in the Canadian population, where 300,000 people have a severe form of the disorder. People with this condition will sweat without any trigger such as exercise. It can also be caused by medical conditions such as menopause or hyperthyroidism. Hyperhidrosis mostly occurs in the areas of:
- feet, and face.
This condition can lead to a decrease in quality of life as it affects your productivity, confidence and social life. Not many people know that this is a treatable condition and therefore do not seek medical help for it. At Medical Spa Club in Richmond, B.C., one way to treat this problem is with the use of neuromodulators. Our doctor uses Botulinum Toxins to inject beneath the skin with a minute amount where it is then absorbed by nerve cells to block neurotransmitters that encourage sweating.
