It used to be the case that excessive sweating - or 'hyperhidrosis' - could only be treated by surgery. But now all it takes is a simple injection...

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition in which the patient sweats excessively.

For some people, the excessive sweating can affect the whole body, whereas for others it only affects a certain part of the body

The most common areas affected by Hyperhidrosis include:

  • armpits
  • palms of your hands
  • soles of your feet
  • face and chest
  • groin

In most cases, both parts of the body are affected i.e. both armpits or both feet.

Although Hyperhidrosis doesn't usually affect a persons health, it can have a negative impact on the quality of life - leading to embarrassment and a general lack of confidence. In some cases it can even lead to depression and anxiety.

What constitutes 'excessive' sweating?

There are no exact guidelines on what 'normal' or 'excessive' sweating is, but if you feel you sweat more than the average person and that it interferes with your everyday life then you may have Hyperhidrosis.

If you are unsure, read the below examples. If any of them sound familiar then your sweating may be excessive and is affecting your everyday life:

  • you feel self-conscious about your sweating and so avoid physical contact like shaking hands or hugging
  • you don't take part in activities or exercise, as you worry your sweating will be worse
  • excessive sweating makes your job harder e.g. you struggle to hold tools/implements
  • normal daily activities like driving are affected because of your sweating
  • you spend a significant amount of time each day thinking about and dealing with your sweating e.g. regularly showering and changing your clothes
  • you become socially withdrawn and self-conscious

I have visited Helena several times over the years and the service and results have been first class. Helena is always welcoming and friendly, but above all a highly skilled practitioner. The new salon in Chorlton is beautiful, spotless, and very discreet! Highly recommended.

Don't just take our word for it

See what our clients say about our dermal filler treatments

I had a 'tear trough' under eye filler treatment done by Helena on Saturday, and the results are absolutely amazing, I look and feel about 10 years younger. I wish I'd had this done years ago. Helena was fantastic, completely professional and put me totally at ease. I can't recommend this treatment highly enough.
