Sweating is just something that happens to us when it’s hot or we’re exercising, right? For a lot of people, it’s just a normal bodily function that is to be expected, but it doesn’t hinder their everyday life. For another large portion of people, however, excessive sweating has become a real problem for them. Excessive sweating is known as hyperhidrosis, and it occurs for seemingly no reason with no trigger, making it incredibly difficult for those that suffer with it to predict or control it.
Hyperhidrosis comes in two camps: triggered, and ever-present. For some people, hyperhidrosis occurs in localised areas when they are anxious, hot, or exercising. These are periods where sweat production naturally spikes, but for those who suffer with excessive sweating then they produce far more than is necessary in these situations. On the other hand, hyperhidrosis commonly occurs for no apparent reason, with no apparent cause, which can be particularly hard for those affected by it. When it becomes a part of everyday life, it’s difficult to avoid or sweep to one side. Both of these cases, when experiencing excessive sweating in localised areas, can be treated by Falmouth Faces.
This is how to treat hyperhidrosis
Trying to control your excessive sweating may feel fruitless and disheartening, but we’re here to offer a solution. When you’ve tried every deodorant, every diet change, and every try-this-at-home trick you can find and still aren’t seeing results, there is one treatment that will help you. We use anti-wrinkle injections where there are no wrinkles – in your localised treatment area. They work much the same as they do with muscles in the face, though this time targeting the glands. We relax these over-active sweat glands so that they don’t produce as much sweat, reducing it for up to 6 months at a time. Common and effective treatment areas include the hands, feet, back, and under-arms.
Does hyperhidrosis affect my health?
Excessive sweating isn’t a dangerous condition in itself and when experiencing it without any other health concerns or symptoms, you need not worry. However, it may be a sign of a condition a little more sinister, so if you are experiencing any of the following then we would recommend seeking a medical professional:
- Excessive sweating and weight loss
- Excessive sweating that occurs mainly during your sleep
- Excessive sweating and feeling pressure or pain in your chest
- Excessive sweating accompanied by a fever, chest pain, shortness of breath, and a rapid heartbeat
We understand that seeking help and talking about your excessive sweating can be embarrassing, almost as embarrassing as experiencing it. We know it may be difficult to talk about and make you feel uncomfortable, which is why we endeavour to make you feel comfortable and confident at your consultation. Whether you are experiencing hyperhidrosis during exercise or high temperatures, or it has just unwillingly become a part of your life, then our treatments in Falmouth can help.
