Put an end to underarm sweat


Severe or excessive sweating is a medical condition known as severe primary hyperhidrosis and is caused by overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body’s temperature regulator, and in severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements for cooling.

Excessive sweating due to hyperhidrosis forces men and women to change their clothes every few hours, limits personal style, ruins fabrics, and impacts self-confidence. Our Practitioners can provide injectable treatments for excessive sweating, and have considerable experience in dealing with hyperhidrosis from the most common areas of the underarms, palms, forehead to even more complicated areas such as upper lip, nose, cheeks and feet.
