Sweating is a very normal body function that regulates body temperature. Effectively, the body controls the internal temperature by producing sweating if the temperature goes up. The reason why some people do produce excessive sweeting more than needed, is because there are sometimes some medical pathologies such as hormonal disorder (such as menopause) or even reaction to some drugs (medication).
In some people, However, the excessive sweating is not associated to any medical condition. In that case the sweating is usually attributed to an overactivity of nerves that regulate sweating. This excessive sweating can be often embarrassing for many patients making them feel self-conscious all the time. This condition is called hyperhidrosis and usually seen in the underarms, hands, and feet. The ideal treatment to reduce or stop the hyperhidrosis is the BOTOX®. Effectively, BOTOX® can stop temporarily the nerve signals from activating the glands produce sweating. This treatment is at the Manchester Cosmetic Centre by Plastic Surgeon Dr. Abel Mounir. It is relatively an easy and quick treatment.

The non-surgical option involves using a device that generates electromagnetic energy to destroy permanently the sweat glands. The surgical option is called sympathectomy involves cutting the nerves that supply the sweat glands.
For patients who would rather have long-lasting results, there is also the TX laser treatment that might be an option. Usually there is a laser fiber that is inserted under the skin into the treatment area, delivering high laser energy just under the surface of skin into the sweat gland. The heat from the laser energy damages the underarm sweat glands located in the deeper tissue layers, and this will lead to reduction of the sweat.
