Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

  • excessive sweating (or hyperhidrosis) can be treated at the Cooden Medical Centre
  • excessive sweating can be reduced with Botox

Anyone who suffers the issue of excessive sweating will understand how it can interfere with many daily activities, cause embarrassment and can generally be an inconvenience. Although harmless, excessive sweating can be a warning sign of thyroid problems, diabetes or infection and is also more common in people who are overweight or physically out of shape.

Hyperhidrosis can either be generalised, or localised to specific parts of the body. Armpits, hands, feet and the groin area are the most active regions of excessive perspiration as there are a higher number of sweat glands located in these areas.

If you are worried about how much you sweat, there are a number of treatments for hyperhidrosis which include prescription strength antiperspirants, oral medications, non-surgery and surgery routes.

Using Botox for excessive sweating can be life changing. No more worry about the tell-tale signs of stress, ruined clothes and you can throw away that extra strong antiperspirant too!

Recommended treatments for Excessive Sweating:

Here at The Cooden Medical Group we recommend Botox® muscle relaxing injections due to their long-lasting effects and no downtime.


Using Botox to prevent excessive sweating is a simple, non-invasive procedure that involves injecting the problematic to relax the activity of the sweat glands and thus reducing excessive perspiration.

The treatment is highly effective and will reduce symptoms by around 90%, meaning you can function normally and not have to worry about changing shirts, odour and making all those excuses, even on a hot sunny day.
