Sweating can cause embarrassment and stress and may interfere with your daily life. If topical agents have not helped, you may be a candidate for treatments we have available at epiclinic®.

What is severe sweating?

Severe sweating is a medical condition caused by overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your bodys temperature regulator; however, in some cases, it can significantly exceed the bodys normal requirement for cooling.

If you sweat at a high level that you find embarrassing or hindering to everyday actions such as shaking hands, an introductory hug or having a conversation in close quarters treatment might be something to consider. It is important that this sweating is at a higher level than average rather than standard levels of sweating that you are simply uncomfortable with.

How does treatment work?

Our treatment can help temporarily manage excessive sweating by closing off the chemical signals from the nerves that activate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands are unable to receive these signals, excessive sweating stops.

What do you use for treatment?

epiclinic® treats severe sweating with small injections of a prescription-only product that is also used for cerebral palsy, cervical dystonia and anti-wrinkle injections. We strongly advise that this procedure is conducted only by a doctor or cosmetic medicine professional.

What results can I expect from treatment?

Treatment for severe sweating or excessive perspiration is highly successful and effective. The results can take a couple of days to take effect and will allow your body to produce a normal sweating pattern. It is important to note that this treatment will not stop sweating altogether. A previous study conducted by epiclinic® of 33 people showed results last between 7-12 months which is a very welcome period for many patients.

Does this treatment hurt?

Treatment can be delivered to a number of locations including armpits and the face. The treatment involves very mild discomfort only and takes approximately ten minutes.
