Excess Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) Treatments Vancouver

What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis, commonly known as excess sweating, can be an embarrassing problem to have. While sweating is usually associated with heat or exercise, people with hyperhidrosis often sweat uncontrollably.

There are two main types of excess sweating.

Primary hyperhidrosis is when faulty nerves signal your sweat glands to overproduce sweat. There’s no underlying medical reason, and the condition often runs in families. Usually, the areas most affected are the palms, armpits, soles of your feet, and face.

Secondary hyperhidrosis is more concerning, with the condition making you sweat all over your body, and it results from either a reaction to medication (including antidepressants) or a health condition like diabetes, menopause, thyroid problems and more.

Whatever the cause, excess sweating causes a lot of anxiety for those afflicted. They may sweat through their clothes or have sweaty palms that make shaking hands a nerve-wracking experience. However, at Skin Technique’s Vancouver Clinic, we have the solutions you need.

How do you prevent excess sweating?

While some people are predisposed to the condition, you can do some things to help prevent excess sweating. If the condition is caused by an underlying health issue such as diabetes, lifestyle changes can work wonders. Antiperspirants like simple underarm deodorant can also be highly effective.
