Hyperdirosis Treatment in Vancouver

        If you’re sweating so heavily that it’s beginning to affect your physical and emotional well-being, it’s important to seek treatment. Hyperhidrosis is a treatable medical condition; treatment can restore your confidence and alleviate your discomfort.

        What Is Hyperhidrosis?

        Hyperhidrosis is a common condition in which a person produces an excessive amount of sweat. This may affect the whole of your body, or it may only affect certain areas. Commonly affected areas include the underarms, back of the neck, and hairline. Unlike normal sweating triggered by heat or exertion, hyperhidrosis throws your body's temperature control off balance. This results in excessive sweating no matter the circumstance (even when you're in a cool environment or at rest, for instance).

        What Are the Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis?

        The most common symptom of hyperhidrosis is uncontrollable sweating that occurs all over your body or in localized areas such as the underarms, hands/palms, lower back, face and even trunk and genitals. Excessive sweating can lead to body odour, discomfort, and even skin infections.

        What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

        Hyperhidrosis occurs when your nervous system essentially tells your sweat glands to begin regulating your body temperature. There are two types of hyperhidrosis: primary hyperhidrosis and secondary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis is caused by faulty nerve signals telling your sweat glands to become overactive, while secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by an underlying medical condition or a medication you’re taking.

        What Common Areas Are Treated for Hyperhidrosis?

        Areas commonly treated for hyperhidrosis include the underarms, palms, and face. Many patients seeking hyperhidrosis treatment in Vancouver have primary hyperhidrosis, which runs in families and tends to be localized. This is the most common type of hyperhidrosis.

        How Much Does a Hyperhidrosis Treatment Cost?

        The cost of your hyperhidrosis treatment will depend on what treatment method our doctors recommend for you. Botox injections need to be repeated to maintain results.

        What Treatments Are Available for Hyperhidrosis?

        Botox/Xeomin Injections

        Botox—often associated with cosmetic wrinkle reduction—is an effective treatment for focal hyperhidrosis. Botox injections use botulinum toxin to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Botox injections are ideal for sweating that occurs in the underarms, palms, and face.

        Are there any risks or side effects?

        Botox injections require minimal downtime and work well to reduce sweat in the treated area. As with any procedure, there are risks and side effects, which is why it’s imperative for you to tell your doctor if you have any muscle or nerve conditions or bleeding problems. Sharing your medication list and prior surgeries will also help reduce your risk of experiencing unwanted side effects.

        Can Hyperhidrosis come back after treatment?

        If you are receiving Botox injections for hyperhidrosis, keep in mind that your hyperhidrosis symptoms will gradually return. Follow-up injections are recommended once every six months to maintain dryness.
