Anti sweating is a hot topic, even when the weather outside is chilly. At The Cosmetic Medicine Centre in Toowong, people from throughout Queensland come to us to address excessive sweating. We’re delighted to be able to share this statistic from the clinical psychology practice Shyness & Social Anxiety Australia,
“97% of excessive perspiration cases can be treated, no matter how severe.”
Everybody sweats. Sweat is a normal physical process by which the body cools itself. Some people, however, sweat constantly and profusely even when they are not exerting any energy. These people are suffering from a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis is characterised by excessive sweating most frequently on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and the armpits. Although it is does not present a challenge to good physical health, it can interfere with healthy social interaction. Some people with hyperhidrosis are so ashamed of their perspiration problem that rather than deal with the embarrassment of excess sweating they become reclusive.
Antiperspirants help most people control underarm wetness. For some, however, antiperspirants can’t stop a flow of perspiration that is both embarrassing and debilitating.
For these people, the following anti-sweating therapies can be life changing.
If you or someone you know is troubled by excessive perspiration and you live in the Brisbane area, we invite you to contact The Cosmetic Medicine Centre today and learn more about anti-sweating therapy solutions.
