excessive sweating treatment
Sweating in excessive amounts refers to a larger amount of sweat that often soaks through your clothes or drips from your palms or soles. This type of excessive sweating is not necessarily related to heat or exercise, and can often affect a person’s normal daily activities and largely affect their self-confidence.
Overactive sweat glands is referred to as hyperhidrosis and can easily be treated with prescription-only injectables-the same used for anti wrinkle treatments- for the temporary reduction of underarm perspiration. The injectable will actively block the action of the nerves that activate the sweat glands thereby reducing the sweat produced.
