Hyperhidrosis or Excessive Sweating

Sweating is a natural and healthy part of life, as a mechanism for the body to cool down. However, excessive sweating is an uncomfortable experience, and is often a cause of embarrassment for sufferers. This condition is called hyperhidrosis, and is estimated to affect around 2-3% of the population. At Aatman Wellness & Medispa, we offer professional hyperhidrosis treatments that will have your problems solved in no time.

Hyperhidrosis can occur for a number of reasons, depending on the individual. The various causes can be divided into two categories: primary and secondary. Primary causes usually refer to those that are congenital in nature, such as one’s genetics, and also sweating caused by the sufferer’s mental and emotional state as well, like feelings of stress and anxiety. Secondary causes are acquired, with excessive sweating caused by changed medical conditions such as the sufferer developing diabetes, menopause or becoming pregnant. Whatever the cause, all people with hyperhidrosis have one thing in common — they know that it’s not an enjoyable experience.

What’s involved with hyperhidrosis treatments?

Sweat glands live in the dermis layer of the skin and are controlled by the sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system tells the sweat glands to begin to produce sweat when a stimulus, such as stress, causes temperatures to rise. Hyperhidrosis occurs when the body begins producing sweat in excess of that which is required.

The aestheticians at Aatman Wellness & Medispa alleviate hyperhidrosis by administering anti-wrinkle injections that disrupts the messages being sent between the nerve endings and the sweat glands, with the result being that sweating is stopped in the designated area. Treatments usually last for around 6 months. Visit our sweat clinics today to begin your treatment.
