Excessive Sweating

Condition Overview

What Is Excessive Sweating?

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is a condition characterised by abnormally high and uncontrollable perspiration that goes beyond what is necessary for regulating body temperature. While sweating is a natural physiological response to heat or exertion, individuals with hyperhidrosis experience an intensified and often disruptive form of sweating.

How Can Excessive Sweating Impact Me?

This condition can significantly impact overall well-being and daily life, both physically and emotionally. Physically, it can lead to discomfort, skin irritation, and an increased risk of fungal or bacterial infections, especially in areas prone to moisture accumulation. The constant dampness may affect clothing choices and contribute to social discomfort. Emotionally, hyperhidrosis can lead to self-consciousness, social anxiety, and a decreased quality of life. Individuals may avoid social situations, intimacy, or activities that trigger increased sweating, affecting their confidence and mental well-being.

What Factors Cause Excessive Sweating?

The causes of excessive sweating vary, with primary and secondary hyperhidrosis being the two main types.

Primary hyperhidrosis is often linked to genetic factors and typically affects specific body areas such as the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and underarms.

Secondary hyperhidrosis results from an underlying medical condition or medication side effects. Other causes may include hormonal imbalances, neurological disorders, infections, or certain medications.

Excessive sweating occurs as a result of overactive sweat glands, and understanding what triggers this response is crucial for effective management. Heat, stress, anxiety, and certain foods or beverages can exacerbate symptoms. Additionally, identifying any underlying medical conditions contributing to hyperhidrosis is essential for tailored treatment approaches.

Can I Stop Excessive Sweating?

Management of excessive sweating ranges from lifestyle modifications to medical or aesthetic interventions. NOVO can administer Botox® injections for excessive sweating, offering relief by regulating the amount of moisture produced by the sweat glands.

Our practitioners help patients to understand the causes, triggers, and available management options to address this condition effectively and improve their overall quality of life.

Blow Media have just launched our brand swanky new website and, excuse the pun, we are blown away. Scott, Ross and Rik nailed the brief we gave them and have gone above and beyond to produce a cracking website. It was also excellent value for money! The team were responsive throughout and were understanding and cool about last minute changes and design tweaking. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Best Website Design Agency in Berkshire in my view, perhaps the best in the UK. Have built 5 websites with them for clients in London, Leamington and Berkshire and every-time they knock it out the park.

This is an example of what our target clients are saying...“I have just looked at your new website….It does look amazing!!!! Very fresh, modern, vibrant and clear and simple to navigate. :)”. Exactly what we want - Scott and his team have delivered against the brief for our new website. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We have worked with Blowmedia closely to build two websites. I am not a very techy person and was daunted by the whole process, Scott explained everything to me in a way I could understand, always at the end of the phone or contactable by email and the whole process dealing with him and his team was easy and painless. The website is very professional and easy to navigate and has instantly from being launched started to attract new patients. I would highly recommend Scott and the Blowmedia's team to build any website.

I initially spoke to a member of Blow Media's team at a trade show and was very impressed with what they had to offer and with the websites they had already built which I was able to look at on my phone as I queued up to speak to somebody. The initial meeting was followed up very promptly that following week with an email and a fully detailed proposal of what they could offer which was very easy to follow, explaining fully all their services and a breakdown of their costs. I had already researched web designers thoroughly and soon realised that Blow Media, from my initial meeting and early correspondance, was the company I was going to use. From day one they were very proactive and led the whole process. Scott the MD came to see us and very quickly fully understood and visualised what we wanted to achieve perfectly. He also recommended a content writer, an SEO company, a company to do some filming in the clinic and a photographer. We used all his contacts other than the photographer which we decided to try and do ourselves but have since decided to use the photographer Blow Media initially recommended as my photography was the only thing I could criticise about my website. I would highly recommend Blow Media and their whole team, I have already instructed them to start work on our second website as our first website is already delivering and the clinic has never been busier.

Blow Media built our first website back in 2011. They worked closely with us and were able to deliver an outstanding, well presented website that enabled us to get found on search engines. After our business continued to grow we commissioned a second website in 2014 and then our third website was built in 2018. Our experience from start to finish has been fantastic With a special mention for Tracy and Scott who always make the process a joy. I would highly recommend the team and have many times already!
