BOOK APPOINTMENT

Hyperhidrosis consists of excessive sweating in the regions of the armpits, forehead, palms of the hands or soles of the feet. It is a genetic condition that limits the social life of those who suffer from it, even affecting relationships between people. At De Felipe Dermatology Clinic we have proven experience in eradicating excessive sweating in London with the latest medical treatments.

What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that can be defined as abnormal and unpredictable sweating of certain areas of the body. This type of intense sweating can cause social anxiety and embarrassment as it disrupts normal daily activities. If you are experiencing excessive sweating, it is advisable to see a medical expert to rule out a serious medical condition.

Axillary hyperhidrosis or palmar hyperhidrosis can lead to social and occupational disability in some people. In addition, it is estimated that around 1% of the population suffers from excessive sweating due to genetic inheritance. Our medical staff eradicate sweating from the sebaceous glands with minimally invasive treatments.

Hyperhidrosis treatment London

The first line of treatment consists of the application of antiperspirant deodorants formulated mainly with aluminium chloride. When this option is ineffective, there are other therapeutic alternatives depending on each patient: oral medication, application of botulinum toxin, microwave treatment or even surgery.

What does botulinum toxin consist of?

The treatment starts with a small injection in several points of the area to be treated. The botulinum toxin will reduce the electrical signals from the nerves that produce sweat. After 7 to 10 days, the patient will notice a noticeable reduction in sweating. It is recommended to repeat this treatment once or twice a year and usually at the beginning of spring or summer.

It should be noted that sweat is a secretion that is produced at the same time as sweating. Thus, sweat that is not produced in the armpits or hands does not accumulate in the body. Botulinum toxin works like a medicine that reduces the production of sweat but instead of lasting for hours like common drugs, it lasts for months.
