What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition in which a person sweats excessively, it has been estimated to affect between one and three in every 100 people which means there are likely to be hundreds of thousands of people living with it in the UK.

The sweating may affect the whole of your body, or it may only affect certain areas. Commonly affected areas include the:


  • underarms
  • palms of your hands
  • soles of your feet
  • face and chest


The sweating doesn’t usually pose a serious threat to your health, but it can be embarrassing, distressing and it can also have a negative impact on your quality of life.

‘Normal’ or heavy sweating can be controlled with shop bought anti-perspirants or aluminium chloride. Only when the amount of sweating is excessive and cannot be controlled by these measures, it is termed “hyperhidrosis”.



At AMP Clinic we offer Botox injections for the treatment of Hyperhidrosis, Botox is an effective drug used to block the the chemical at the end of the nerves so that it cannot work on the glands or muscles. In the case of sweat glands it turns them off to reduce sweating. It requires multiple small injections of the toxin a few centimetres apart in the armpit, the area is numbed ahead of treatment so that you feel minimal discomfort.
