Hyperhydrosis (Excess Sweating)

Experience the life-changing benefits of antiwrinkle injections in managing excessive sweating under the armpit

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating beyond what is necessary for thermoregulation. It is a chronic condition that can significantly impact a person’s quality of life, causing physical discomfort, emotional distress, and social embarrassment.

Usually begins during adolescence or early adulthood and tends to affect specific areas of the body, such as the underarms, face, palms, and soles of the feet,

Hyperhidrosis can have a significant impact on a person’s daily activities, self-confidence, and emotional well-being. It can lead to discomfort, skin irritation, difficulty gripping objects, and social withdrawal due bad odour (Bromhidrosis)
