Many patients experience hyperhidrosis in Victoria, BC. Also known as excessive sweating, this condition may occur on the underarms, hands, feet, face, or even the entire body. Hyperhidrosis is caused by overactive sweat glands and may have a negative impact on one's quality of life – including social embarrassment, staining of clothes, activities of daily living, physical discomfort, and even employment. Early identification and proper management of hyperhidrosis are crucial to lessen the emotional, social, and physical impact of this condition.
There are a number of treatment options available for excessive sweating, ranging from topical antiperspirants to surgical procedures.
At Cosmedica, one of the most popular treatments for hyperhidrosis is BOTOX® Therapeutic. Treatments take as little as 10 minutes, and the results last many months. For those who feel that surgery may be too invasive, BOTOX treatment may be worth considering.
