Sweating is completely normal and necessary for the body to reduce heat. Severe, or excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, is a phenomenon that can cause significant discomfort.
Small doses of muscle – relaxing injections are injected into the skin blocking nerve supply and preventing the sweat glands from producing sweat.
This treatment doesn’t cure hyperhidrosis but provides temporary relief for up to five to six months. Hyperhidrosis treatment is performed only by specialist doctors and surgeons who are fully trained and qualified in the particular procedure.
The skin in these areas is sensitive, and a local anaesthetic is applied before the treatment.
