Excessive sweating treatment in Lisburn.



Excessive sweating is known as hyperhidrosis and it is more common than you might realise. Sweating may affect the whole of your body, or it may only affect some areas.


Although not a serious threat to your health, excessive sweating can be embarrassing and distressing. There is no normal amount of sweating.  If you feel you sweat too much it may impact your quality of life and even lead to feelings of depression and anxiety.


Some people even feel they have to avoid physical contact with other people such as shaking hands.  They might avoid social situations to conceal their condition.  This reminds me of gentleman I treated who concealed his condition from his partner by always insisting he drove his car on a night out.  The reason he did this was so he could keep a second shirt in his car and change his clothes when he felt he needed to.  Every time he bought a shirt, he bought a second exact same shirt.  He has been doing this for years.


Excessive sweating that has an identifiable cause is known as secondary hyperhidrosis, and could be related to a medical condition.  If excessive sweating is new for you, your first point of contact should be your GP.


One solution to deal with excessive sweating is Botulinum toxin. The Botulinum toxin can be injected into the skin in areas of the body affected by hyperhidrosis.  This helps reduce sweating in these areas by blocking the signals from the brain to the sweat glands.


The effect of the injections usually lasts for 3-4 months, after which time the treatment can be repeated if necessary. It is a quick, painless and relatively non invasive treatment.
