What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis, also known as Excessive Sweating is the name of a condition for someone who sweats more than the average person and finds that their condition is not treatable by any antiperspirants on the market. 3% of the population, which is more than 95,0000 Canadians, experience this disorder. This disorder can have a large effect on one’s daily social activities and at work. It affects personal motivation, self-esteem, and lifestyle very deeply. This disorder is closely related to acne, rosacea, and psoriasis. Very few people who have the condition bring it up with their physicians and many are scared to seek help. They don’t understand that their sweating can be controlled with corrective medical treatments.

One of the treatments that Skinatomy specializes in is Botulinum Toxin Type A treatments. Botox is injected underneath your armpits by diminishing or preventing the body’s sweat glands. The injection is not continuous but it lasts for approximately 6 months from the procedure and the results are immediate. Hyperhidrosis, also known as HH, does have a few possible side effects so topical alternatives should always be considered first.
