Excessive Sweating | Winnipeg Hyperhidrosis Treatments
If you have experienced excessive sweating, you likely know how inconvenient and embarrassing it can be. Excessive sweating can affect your self-confidence and can even affect which clothing you wear. What you don’t know? It is a real medical condition known as hyperhidrosis. If your body produces more sweat than is needed to cool the body, you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis.
There are two types of hyperhidrosis.
Primary hyperhidrosis: Affects specific areas such as the underarms, palms, feet and face. Begins in childhood/adolescence and caused by malfunction in the sympathetic nervous system.
Secondary hyperhidrosis: Affects entire body, caused by medication or condition such as menopause, metabolic disorders, neurological disorders or infections.
If you live in Winnipeg and are ready to stop letting the sweat affect your life, Dr. Minuk SkinClinic and Laser Centre can help. Botox is an extremely successful treatment for hyperhidrosis that occurs in the armpits.
The injection fee is generally covered by Manitoba Health and most group insurance plans cover the prescription for Botox. Botox is injected with a thin needle and there is no need for anesthesia. Botox temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. This causes severe sweating to stop in the treated area.
