Understanding Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterised by excessive sweating beyond what is needed for regulating body temperature. While sweating is a natural and necessary bodily function, those with hyperhidrosis experience an overproduction of sweat, which can be debilitating. This condition is typically classified into two main types:

  1. Primary Hyperhidrosis: This form of primary hyperhidrosis usually begins during childhood or adolescence and often affects the armpits, hands, and feet. It typically has no underlying medical cause and is generally not associated with other health conditions.
  2. Secondary Hyperhidrosis: Secondary hyperhidrosis is linked to an underlying medical condition or a side effect of medications. It can affect larger areas of the body and may develop later in life.

 

Effects of Hyperhidrosis

Excess sweat can impact various aspects of daily life, from slight discomfort to psychological distress. People with severe hyperhidrosis often deal with:

  • Embarrassment and anxiety in social situations
  • The need to frequently change clothing due to sweat stains on clothing
  • Difficulty holding objects due to sweaty hands
  • Avoidance of physical activities or public speaking
  • Disruption of daily routines and work performance
  • Compromised quality of life

 

The Science Behind Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Our treatment addresses the root cause of hyperhidrosis, which is an overactive sweat gland. During the procedure, our experienced specialist Ness Griffiths will administer anti-wrinkle injections, at the Cumbria, Carlisle clinic, targeting the specific nerve impulses that trigger excess sweating. These injections temporarily block the nerve signals that stimulate the sweat glands. This results in a significant reduction in the production of sweat production in the treated areas.

The treatment is quick, virtually painless, and involves minimal side effects. There is no risk of muscle weakness, and it is an excellent non-invasive solution to combat the challenges of hyperhidrosis.
