Hyperhidrosis treatment options
If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, Hemingway Medical Spa offers the most effective treatment option available: Therapeutic Botox. Hyperhidrosis is defined as sweating more than what is required to regulate body temperature. Primary focal hyperhidrosis commonly occurs in the palms of the hands, soles of the feet or axilla (arm pits). This condition affects between 1 and 3 per cent of the population. Before any treatment options are explored, a medical assessment is performed to identify or rule out underlying diseases that can manifest as generalized hyperhidrosis.
Therapeutic Botox often reduces sweating by up to 75%, while also improving physical and mental well-being. One treatment can reduce the effects of hyperhidrosis for 6-9 months. Most patients report being satisfied with the results and happy to recommend Hemingway Medical Spa’s Therapeutic Botox treatment to others. The treatment works by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter responsible for hyperstimulation of eccrine sweat glands.
