About Excessive Sweating Treatment

Excessive Sweating Treatment

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterised by excessive sweating that surpasses the body's necessary regulation of temperature. If you're experiencing hyperhidrosis, you may sweat profusely even when the body doesn't require cooling, or it can become more noticeable if you become self-conscious about sweating. Hyperhidrosis can be socially embarrassing and interfere with daily activities. This condition can affect various parts of the body, including the hands, feet, armpits, face, and scalp.


Most common signs of hyperhidrosis include: 

  1. Experiencing excessive sweating without an obvious trigger, irrespective of the temperature. 

  2. Noticing that you sweat more heavily compared to those in your surroundings.

  3. Feeling self-conscious during social interactions due to excessive sweating, which might diminish your confidence when meeting friends or participating in activities.

  4. Sweating predominantly in specific areas like the face, scalp, hands, feet, or underarms. Multiple areas can be affected simultaneously. 

  5. Sensation of sweating worsens when you think about it, leading to increased perspiration. 

  6. Hyperhidrosis isn't restricted to summer months; it persists year-round, though it may intensify during warmer weather.

If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms but you are not sure how to treat it, Book a Free Consultation and Patch Test Now!


During the consultation we will do a Starch-iodine test or other known patch test for excessive sweating. This test involves the application of an iodine solution to the sweaty area and sprinkles starch/powder over the iodine solution. Your clinician will then pinpoint these marked areas, indicating the sweat glands requiring treatment. This precise identification guides our targeted approach to address your concerns effectively.


We administer precise injections of botulinum toxin on the areas marked during your starch-iodine test, targeting directly the sweat gland. If you suffer from hyperhidrosis then your sweat glands are being overstimulated by a chemical in your body. Botulinum toxin injections block the signals from the nervous system that supply the sweat glands; this stops them working so hard and prevents them from producing so much sweat. 

Patient's Journey

All Your Questions Answered
  • What is Gastric Sleeve Surgery?
    Gastric sleeve surgery is a surgical procedure that reduces your stomach size. By limiting the amount, a person could eat, it is perfect for people who are extremely overweight and neither diet or training is not effective. A person should be extremely careful when deciding to take this procedure as it is irreversible and will greatly affect their lifestyle.
  • How does it work?
    The surgery removes a part of the stomach, reducing its size by 75% thus leaving the left side in a long sleeve shape. While three-quarters of the stomach is removed it retains all its previous functions resulting in a smaller efficient stomach that limits your food intake because of its size. Furthermore, the stomach produces hormones such as gastrin and ghrelin which are associated with the feeling of hunger, so removing a part of the stomach would decrease the level of these hormones as well as your appetite. The rest of the pouch is closed using medical staples and manual stitching to prevent any legates from occurring (doctors could perform a fluid test while operating to validate). During this period of time the patient will be under the effect of general aesthetics and the operation could last between 1-2 hours.
  • What are the benefits?

  • Risks and Complications
    Risks are lowered considerably if a patient doesn’t smoke and sticks to a healthy lifestyle. Possible risks are : Acid reflux – gastric juice leaks into oesophagus damaging the mucosal layer ( to deal with this antacid medication must be taken up until 3 months after the surgery Blood clots – form due to a lower blood flow in the veins ( to prevent this there should be exercise wherever it is possible, smoking is also damaging and it creates blood clots) Vomiting and nausea – they get better with time Dumping syndrome – occurs when food enters the small intestine too quickly, causing diarrhoea, sweating and bloating (refrain from eating and drinking at the same time or rushing when having a meal) Infections
  • Recovery
    After your stay at the hospital (normally 2 days) it is normal to feel tired the first few days. When a week has passed, you may return to work, though it is recommended to rest 2-3 weeks until your body stabilises. Everyday activities should be comfortable to perform within 4-6 weeks but from 3-6 months some symptoms might develop for this short period of time such as mood changes, tiredness, thinning hair or dry skin (due to the excessive weight loss). However, the ongoing treatment will include our doctors continuously consulting with you helping in creating an exercise plan and a controlled diet. Blood tests might be required to check the progress of the individual. A healthy lifestyle maximises results and reduces risks to a great extent so a patient should exercise, stay hydrated and change their diet and eating habits
