When our body’s internal temperature rises, the natural response is for our nervous system to produce sweat as a cooling mechanism. For some individuals, however, the nerves responsible for activating sweat glands can become overactive, leading to an overproduction of perspiration that may be uncomfortable or lead to feelings of self-consciousness in certain situations. Medically referred to as hyperhidrosis, this excessive sweating commonly occurs in the hands, feet, underarms, forehead, and various other regions of the body, and it affects about three percent of the population worldwide. Fortunately, our skincare practice offers an effective, non-surgical procedure designed to help prevent excessive sweating.
