Say goodbye to embarrassing perspiration with a simple non-surgical procedure
When was the last time you felt conscious about feeling wet or sticky after a workout at the gym? It goes with the territory that you’ll have a glow after exerting your body but what would it be like to constantly be sweating; even when you’re not doing any physical activity? Excessive Sweating is a common condition that makes sufferers feel embarrassed, ashamed and unhappy. For the majority, it’s an acute condition that comes on only when they are feeling stressed or anxious – times when they may face important meetings, work deadlines, or when they feel conscious in front of others.
Excessive Sweating, medically known as axillary hyperhidrosis is caused by the body’s inability to regulate temperature and over activity caused by eccrine glands. It’s an issue faced by many men in particular, and therefore grooms, who have to shake a lot of congratulatory hands on their Big Day, is something they shy away from as they are embarrassed about their wet palms. But Excessive Sweating doesn’t just affect palms, it can originate from glands all over your body, leading to overly sweaty armpits and soles of your feet.
Thankfully though, it isn’t a problem you need to live with. A simple application of injections by a trained nurse or surgeon is all it takes to put this issue behind you, helping you have a normal life where the fear of sweating doesn’t even come into the equation. Cedars Dermatology are experts in treating Excessive Sweating and offer a quick, safe, affordable treatment that can be fit into a lunch break, well ahead of your Big Day.
