Excessive sweating (which is medically referred to as hyperhidrosis) is a condition that can affect men and women at any age and really can be an embarrassing and socially debilitating for those that suffer with it.

Sweating is a normal bodily function that serves to cool your body by regulating temperature and is part of the nervous system that is not under your control.

In normal day to day life, there are things that can make you sweat, such as :

Exercise

Situations – for example an exam or when you are angry or afraid

Hot weather and humidity

However, if you feel that sweating is seriously restricting your enjoyment of everyday life or it is affecting your self-confidence then you may be suffering from excessive sweating. Those with the condition regularly need to change their clothes during the day, need to shower more frequently and end up spending huge sums of money on deodorants.  If this is you then you may wish to consider a procedure called Laser Sweat Ablation.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and is a walk in walk out procedure. It is relatively straight forward and uses laser to destroy the sweat glands (known an eccrine glands) resulting in a long term, significant reduction to sweating.  For more information and to view a video demonstrating the LSA procedure, please go to The Whiteley Clinic LSA treatment page
